Hey I have been taking whey and I am currently running low on funds if you know what i mean, ehhe (im in college) and I saw soy protein at winco for like 3$ a pound and was wondering how good it was ? and what not.
Edit: I did search the forums, for a good 15 min.
Thanks

Nate

a search of the forums would've uncovered the fact that no one here thinks soy protien is a good choice.

if Nitrean is too expensive, you can get ON 100% whey for like $25 for a 5.5lb tub.
if that's too expensive, hit www.trueprotein.com or www.proteinfactory.com and buy in bulk.

i find soy protein to be prety harsh on the stomach,hard to digest.

I like soy. Before whey thats what everybody was drinking.

That said I doubt I would ever buy it when I could get a premium blend like Nitrean or a simple whey product cheaper.

I don't have any problem digesting it (or so I assume since it doesn't cause any uh... discomfort), and I include about 30% soy protein in the blends I order.

digestion problems, and the fact that the scientists can't figure out if it lowers testosterone, boosts estrogen, or simply doesn't effect either hormone level in men.

until they decide concretely on an answer to that issue, I don't recommend it.

The chinese used soy as one of thier five sacred grains.

Each season they would rotate crops and when they grew the soy they never consumed it. They let the whole crop die and return nutrients to the land.

They didn't start consuming it until thousands of years later when they discovered the process of fermentation. At present time soy is only consumed in fermented states ie: Tempeh and Misu.

You can purchase fermented soy protien products that are easier to digest.

Again though it comes back to cost. I can barely get 2lbs of soy for what I pay for 5lbs of whey.

I get ON 100% from www.vitaglo.com for like $25 for 5lbs plus shipping (unless you order $50 or more...free shipping)

but I"ve pretty much converted to Nitrean...$35 for 5lbs, and its a high quality whey+casien.

For a vegetarian it may be your only source of retinol.
