    Last night was the first time I've seen this. It's "Special K protein plus"

    2 servings which is 1 1/2 cups =

    200 calories
    6g fat
    28g carbs
    20g protein
    4g sugar
    10g fiber

    Add a cup of nonfat milk =
    90 calories
    0g fat
    13g carbs
    9g protein

    So my breakfast was under 290 calories with 29g of protein. It's a nice break from egg whites. Anything bad I'm missing?

    Soy and wheat protein apparently. I'd eat it anyway, too bad it isn't available in canada.

    whey shake (30g) with peanut butter (2tbsp) and skim milk (2cups) > * breakfast items


    ~500 cals
    50+ g protein
    17g fat
    not many carbs... add a carb source and you have even more cals and a balanced breakfast.





    tuna and rice a little while later ftl though.

    If you're not a vegan and if you're getting 1g/lb or more, it probably doesn't make a difference.

    i get my 1g/1lb everyday. I'm trying to lose fat not gain it. I usually follow up breakfast with a fruit, chicken breast for lunch, slimfast bar before workout, protein shake and fish after workout. about 1600 calories on average. I've lost a significant amount of fat while gaining muscle mass by working out 5 days a week.

    Naturally occurring estrogens... I eat it anyways lately though. South beach diet bars are a decent snack with my 8 hour block of classes with no break :wtc:

    I am not Andrew, so I can't answer it as well as he can. Just what I've read.

    There are studies that show that it has a phytochemical that can act like human estrogen, so brolies refuse to use it for fear of getting emotional, bitchtits, and Lifetime.

    That being said, I've only ever read that it has chemicals that can act like estrogens, but no study that shows any bad effects on people getting said above symptoms. So I still eat it because I'm veg and like to know that I can still get a complete protein.

    EDIT: That's not to say that studies don't exist showing that soy can drastically hurt you more than help, just that I haven't seen them at all, only that the good usually outweighs the bad. So if someone can post something, cool.

    sounds delicious, but I couldn't bring myself to eat it every day.
