    i read somewhere in this forum that you should avoid soy milk when trying to put on muscle mass. can anyone confirm this? since the soy milk i buy at the chinese grocery store is only compiled of "soy, sugar and salt" it doesnt make sense to me.
    thanks

    There's no such thing as soy milk. It's soy juice. Know how come I know there's no such thing as soy milk? Because there's no soy titty, is there? - Lewis Black

    Lactose intolerant milk kiss my dick. If you're lactose intolerant you can't drink milk. So what's in the fucking carton? Get it out of there, get it away from my milk. It is talking to my milk and making it feel bad about itself. - Lewis Black

    “They couldn’t sell soy juice so they called it soy milk because any time you say soy juice you actually start to gag.”

    If you like man-tities, by all means, have your soy milk.

    if you want a milk alternative try rice milk. But steer clear of soy milk (and any soy you can). there's worry about it having estrogen in it, and the effects that come from that.

    slightly off topic, estrogen is a hormone, hormones are made up of protein (correct me if i'm wrong), therefore if you denature that protein, say by cooking it, theoretically wouldn't it be harmless?
    Yes? No?

    steroid hormones such as estrogen are derived from cholesterol, not protein. And anyway, denaturing a protein does not necessarily change it's bioavailability.

    cooking a protein might denature it, but that doesn't mean it can no longer be used by the body. Any protein you ingest becomes denatured anyway by the acid in your stomach as part of the initial phase of digestion.

    Soy once in a while won't hurt you, barring pre-existing thyroid issues or anything of that sort. There's really no point to it though in my opinion- there's better protein out there, and soy milk just doesn't taste as good as real milk :dunno:

    It also contains phytic acid, which will cause your body to not absorb minerals and vitamins as well as it needs to be.
