I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?
What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome. This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more
Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms
Thyroid: Synthroid absorption is key. It is to be taken by itself on an empty stomach for an hour. Your TSH going up does not coincide with hyperthyroidism. TSH is the hormone that is "telling your body/thyroid gland to produce or not produce thyroxine or thyroid hormone. When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still. ...Read more

Continue avoid milk: It takes time, so a continued milk an dairy elimination diet is in order. It would be important to read labels to make sure there is no "hidden" dairy in other foods.

Many: Whole grains are a great source of protein, but the one with the highest protein content is quinoa. All beans, lentils, & peas, edamame, tvp and tempeh. Nuts, including peanuts, cashews, almonds and walnuts all contain protein, as do seeds like sesame seeds and sunflower seeds. Store-bought meat substitute products & seitan are rich in protein, as are protein shakes. ...Read more
Less purines!: Soy protein does not contain the dna content of meat, hence less purines, which are converted into uric acid, the cause of gouty arthritis. Soy protein deoes not mirror the Amino Acid content of animal protein, so comparatively, whey protein from milk is better. The protein effiency index of soy is less than whey. Nutritional support may be necessary, if avoiding meat-b12, zinc, iron. ...Read more
Processed soy: There is good evidence that fermented organic soy is part of a healthy lifestyle for men & women -think miso, tempah, etc... However, the highly processed soy found in textured vegetable protein and soy milk is not healthy. Most commercial non-organic soy is processed using highly toxic hexane. I recmmend avoiding all non-organic processed soy. ...Read more

Are soy proteins a better substitutes to animal proteins for a man of 69yrs suffering from diabetes?
I'm seeing more products with pea protein as an ingredient. How does it compare nutritionally to other protein sources? Is it a safer choice than soy?
Not "safer": Pea protein powder has a certain composition of base amino acids as compared to other protein sources. The important thing is to mix it up and not use a single source chronically for weeks and months. Soy has come under scrutiny for its estrogenic and chemical containing compositions. There is plenty on the internet about this debate. It's not necessarily "less safe" - it's just your goal ...Read more

If you're adding the smoothies onto a diet that already contains the amount of calories and nutrients you need, you will not lose weight. It may help to review your overall food plan with a nutritionist to see how the soy smoothies fit into it. Exercise too! ...Read more

I feel really calm after taking soy protein. Is this a good thing or bad? My mind goes quite and calm..
Is it true soy is bad for men, like for example my 15 yr old son eats cliff protein bars they have soy in them will it effect him?
Not likely: Soy has been used by some women in an effort to raise or imitlate female hormone levels, but there is no significant way that your young son should be affected by consuming soy products. Strongly suspect his testosterone in fairly high. Edamame probably has more soy than your power bars. ...Read more
