30 Top Diet Plans That Are Actually Worth Trying
I guess it has Choline but not sure. I lost 70 pounds quickly and was so happy buying new clothes, etc, wanted to lose pounds more. Feedback on weight loss has primarily been attributed to the effect of limiting calorie intake; even going as far as simply limiting carbohydrate intake. Under DSHEA, responsibility for determining the safety of the dietary supplements changed from government to the manufacturer and supplements no longer required approval from the U. I have had breast cancer twice, and this last time, it came because I was not aware of what soy does to your body, and I was drinking soy milk almost on a daily basis. My blood pressure is down and have been able to decrease my medication. My cousin was taking the lipsomal C which is made with non GMO soy lecithin.

Supplementation

You do take supplements such as a daily vitamin, essential fatty acids fish oil and an appetite suppressant they call the metabolizer not to mention the protein bars and shakes that run more than I went from to in a short amount of time. Once, I hit I plateaued miserably.

I did all that they asked me to do and could not lose any more weight. I was basically told, they could not help me. I left Slim 4 Life and they still call me wanting me to come in. I work out now and still eat healthy but, I eat corn, carrots, and cheese. All of which is forbidden until you lose ALL the weight. I am happy and healthy and still am losing in a healthy way on my own.. Wish I had read this page before I spent almost two thousand dollars on Slim 4 Life. I was on the program for aproximately three and a half weeks going to the store four times a week for weigh ins.

I lost six pounds by drinking tons of water and taking there suplements which ending up making my heart race. I ended up in the Doctors office thinking I was having a heart attack.

Believe me there is no money back guarantee. This turned out to be one big mistake….. Hi, l feel the same way two thousand dollars on slim 4 life. The pills did not do a thing for me. I need to get some of my money back. I tried slim for life a year ago and it is so disappointing.

Once you break the diet down you are allowed to eat between calories a day! I spent over 2K on slim for life to lose 30 pounds. I took all the nasty pills and drank the nasty power boost and did the whole thing. I lost about 28 in 12 weeks. But I am healthier and happier. I was not obese but took off the weight for vanity. I lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks…. Dieting is about Calories in and Calories out…. I only had 18 lbs. I feel very jittery and weak.

I am a mother and cannot really focus and be there for my kids the way I need to be because of the way I feel. I did the Atkins diet years ago and went from a size 12 to a 2 in months and never felt like this. I have lost maybe 4 lbs. Now here i am at 5 months and one thing i have noticed is that even though i am not doing the diet that well, i am still using supplements and i am loosing hair like crazy.

At first i thought it might be my age as i am 58, or maybe a medication, even though i had been on it for months, but this is crazy loss. Yes, I too was losing hair like crazy. I have very fine thin hair so this was a real concern. I also thought it might be my age as I was 50 the first time I did the program. I gained all the weight back and went back a second time and had the same issue with hair loss. I only wanted to loose 23 lbs. I did loose 6 lbs, though, and felt pretty good.

Any by the way, my stomach started to hurt really bad about the 4th week into the program… and yes, this is absolutely a no money back program, which to me is horrible. If the pills are causing sickness, their should be some type of refund, even half would be great. My reason for trying the program was to get off blood pressure meds, which for 4 weeks I did. I am also trying the green smoothies now, and walking more.

I really want to get off the meds for good and loose the weight as well…. I may be different from all. My wife got in to slim for life three months ago weighing LB.

But now she is LB she really enjoys the food she is really energetic. So she loves it and she said it is worth paying the money. Because she tried south beach diet and all appetite suppresant pills which most of them deprive her sleep and reacting with medication which she used to take.

So I may not agree with you in this matter. But thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to express my opinion. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I was very excited. I highly recommend it. It was way to expensive for us. You said you followed the food rules and lost… did you also use any of the over the counter bars or thurmal boost pills to try to help it along??

Find Omega3 and a Carb blocker. My mom paid for the program and lost about 45 lbs in 4 months. I am on it right now and have lost about 16 lbs in 5 weeks. This is what I eat: Tuna or chicken for lunch, a protein bar I prefer the Zone bars and chicken or fish for dinner. The first 3 days are only protein and veggies no carrots, corn, or peas. Very simple diet to follow. My husband has lost 20 lbs in 5 weeks. My mom started this diet a few years ago and lost 45 lbs in about 4 months. The first place you lose it is your stomach which is great but you must follow the program which is fairly simple.

My husband and I have been doing the diet for about 5 weeks. I have lost 16 lbs and my husband has lost 20 lbs. My mom gave me the diet plan.

I ate 2 boiled eggs and 1 orange for breakfast. I felt satisfied and lost 5 lbs the first 3 days. After that I added in one starch per day and a protein bar I prefer the Zone bars-which a counselor told my mom is the same thing as their bars.

You are not suppose to eat cheese but my husband and I will sometimes eat string cheese as an afternoon snack. I probably could of lost more over these 5 weeks but I drink beer on the weekends. It is a simple plan to follow and it does work. My stomach is flatter now than before I had my daughter in February. The 3 day prep is. You can also have as much Kraft Fat Free dressing as you want to go with your vegetables and to put on your meat as well.

You are basically doing the Atkins diet during your prep phase. Also make sure you drink plenty of water oz a day. You pee your fat out, that is why it is so important to drink water. I cannot afford the program. I have tried pretty much everything out there with no success. I visited with a slim4 life an program is way too expensive for me. And also the 3 day prep diet. I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much! Hey Rose, Would it be possible for you to share the list and prep with me?

I would greatly appreciate your help! Could someone please send me the list of foods. I truly want to lose weight but need a quick start for now. I would appreciate it so much, I am getting married in July and really need to lose about 20 pounds. Try Somersizing- you could drop 20 effortlessly — kindof the same as Slim4life with more choices and variety — can get the book at a bookstore — even the used bookstores have it.

You can cook at home or eat out. Did they check all the galbladder ducts? If you have a stone in one of the bile ducts it can cause extreme pain. Its funny you should suggest that.

The covering of the pills contain soy. When I digest it, laxative are the best solution, in its self most laxatives contain soy. I just deal with the issue until it passes through my system. Unless its compounded I cannot and will not take it. I cannot take most Antibiotics, the pills contain soy.

Unless it can be compounded there is no use in me taking it. I live in Texas, might as well live on a small Island. I have very few foods I can eat. Even the ones from the grocery store have a soy covering. Unless I start going my own foods, I will never enjoy a good apple any time soon. It causes tumors to grow anywhere there are nerves. Soy can mimic estrogen which feeds tumor growth, so I try and avoid it.

I also started taking a turmeric supplement for anti-inflammatory purposes. Would you recommend NOT taking these? The pills are expensive and much less effective than making your own paste and making golden milk or put it in a smoothie or something. Or turmeric user group in Facebook.. Anne, I buy fresh organic turmeric rhizomes from the grocery and use them for tea, broth, etc.

Before I found those I just used the organic powdered form in the spice section. Stay away from supplement form if you can. I have hypothyroid disease and generally avoid soy because of the disease.

How is this different then the soy that is in food that I avoid. If my multi-vitamin has soy lecithin in it should I also avoid that multi-vitamin since I avoid most of the soy I find in ingredients for my food? I, too, have hypothyroidism autoimmune and I would like to know the answer to this, as well.

I have read that there are many benefits from taking lecithin supplements but, from this article, it sounds like choline is actually doing the body good. My biggest symptom was severe sinus inflammation which were so severe that we believed to be migraines for the first few years. For severe chronic sinus problems, read up on serrapeptase. I just recently started taking it so its too soon to tell but the information looks promising!

Chronic sinus problems are also linked to dairy and gluten sensitivity. Try eliminating both of these for a month and see if there is an improvement.

If either are the culprit it will take this long to find relief with a strict diet excluding both. All the above stopped when I found out I have a Gluten Intolerance problem. Been GF for over 4 years and have never been sick since then.

As for diary,Ive known the dangers of consuming that since I was a kid. Our Doctor when I was little told my Mom to keep it away from us. Casein in milk causes blocked sinuses. Those intolerant will find the symptoms pronounced if they supplement with Micellar Casien as found in protein shakes used by fitness enthusiasts.

Similar reactions to other cassienates found in these shakes. A few days off it and the blocked noses clear up. Soy lecithin is a compound produced from soybean oil. Soy lecithin supplements may help decrease the symptoms of certain medical conditions and are often marketed commercially as a weight-loss aid. However, there is little reputable scientific evidence to indicate that using soy lecithin regularly has any beneficial effect on weight.

Talk to your doctor about the possible drawbacks of making soy lecithin a part of your weight-management regimen and about other lifestyle changes that can contribute to enhanced health and sustainable weight loss.

I wonder if this research, refers to the promising studies surrounding the use of D Chiro Inositol, which have suggested improvements in insulin resistance for women with PCOS and Type 2 Diabetics.? Soy Lecithin is a dietary source, high in D Chiro Inositol.

Taking mg 2 pills with each meal along with Vitamin E and Omega-3 has been a miracle at disintegrating gall stones over the course of a couple months. So glad to have avoided gall bladder surgery. Please tell me if you take organic tablets, and what make?

I would like to know, if it is chemicals, mostly vitamins or is the soy organic. The product is MediFast. Medifast is soy based. I lost a lot of weight on it but then was diagnosed with estrogen positive Breast cancer and gained all my weight back! Do you know if that include soy lecithin? I am soy allergic and I have had reactions to both spy oil and Soy Lecithin. Just this past week another one to Soy Lecithin in a bread that did not have it before but they now they added it to the bread recently.

Had a reaction a few months back when someone use a can of supposed canola oil spray and yup they also had started adding Soy Lecithin to it as well I get fairly severe reactions so all these manufactures using Soy Lecithin in everything they make is a real issue for me and others with severe Soy Allergies.

It may be worth looking into Hexane sensitivity if you have an allergy soy lecithin but not to whole soy. I traced my sinus pain, asthma reaction, and vertigo back to consuming soy lecithin years ago but would still ocassionally have reactions in spite of avoiding soy lecithin.

Would you recommend a person with a history of thyroid disorder particularly thyroid nodules stay away from daily supplements that may contain soy lecithin? In regards to whether it is safe to use soy lecithin if you have hypothyroidism.

It should be safe. I would refer you to the following website. Thanks for the run down. I have an allergy to soy, such as tofu, edamame, soy milk. I have many other allergies and I know it depends on the amount and form of proteins — I have a severe reaction to some things raw, but once they are cooked beyond recognition I can tolerate them. So for almost Our body struggle to survive in nature because the nature is not specifically designed for us.

Better stats when comparing longevity, whether it be between our ancient brethren and us or across the last century years is to compare adult death rates, not general populations that include infants and the young. Childhood illness, accidents etc. Adult comparison from age 20 gives about the best comparisons of longevity across the ages.

Using this measure, our grandparents actually did very well compared to us death rates and now. Cancer rates and heart disease in the adult set were very uncommon until the s when they began to rise dramatically, due to denuding of grains in processing another factors chemicals for one ; today, both heart disease and cancer rates are skyrocketing and a decline in longevity is happening.

The real boost in the last century to longevity were modern cleanliness, antibiotics and work related laws. Remember, survival depends on knowledge from the older generations, a vital link to past dangers.

If few lived beyond age 30, it is unlikely our species would have survived. Namaste and care, mhikl. Well, nature was made for us to enjoy! Its as simple as Adam n Eve who sinned and did not listen to God. Since then we all are born with sin and it has its effects on the mind evil people putting chemicals in our foods , as well as sins effect on the physical body sickness and age of dying.

It comes down to your free will God gave you and how you use it. Believe what u want to believe, everyone has free speech, you said ur point of view about nature n man, n here is mine. Have a good day.! It is untrue because the Bible lets us know that Adam and Eve lived no longer then at most years ago.

There is nothing wrong with eating any way you prefer to if it makes you feel healthy, but please do not base it on the lie of evolution. Not only your physical health and well being are at stake here, but your eternal destiny. Out of place artifacts and other historical evidence suggest otherwise. There is nothing wrong with eating like cave men. You say they all died young as if it was their diet that killed them, and that is a crock.

Cave men and women died young because of exposure, accidents, animal attacks, insect bites, snake bites, drowning, bad weather, disease, and violence with other men and women……. In response to the person who asked why would we want to eat like cavemen as they died young, you have to remember, that cave people also had environmental threats on their lives. For example, they could easily freeze to death, or be eaten by a larger animal.

They could twist their ankle and be left behind by their tribe or clan because they were a burden. If food was scarce, they could starve to death.

The bottom line is, they did not have all the modern day diseases that we suffer from today because we eat the standard American diet SAD. Meaning that a lot of people died but not from cancer, heart disease or diabetes which are diet related!!! Whether they died from hunger or cold at 2 years old or were eaten by a lion at 43 or injured themselves at 69 and bled out.

What is the nature of your worry? By the way you should explore the Budwig diet on the astounding applications of the stuff. Even buying chicken and beef is hard these days bc animals are fed vegetarian diets containing soybeans to bulk them instead of hormone injections.. Even meat that says from grass fed cows still can contain soy bc they are given soybeans too is what a local farm representative told me. Long story but hopefully caught early.. Thx for all who research about soy and soy lecithin..

I try to not google much but when I saw the jelly beans I have for my kids and I love them too contains soy lecithin I was shocked and my husband said that product is in a lot of candy. I will err on the side of staying away unless it is fermented. You do not stay need to stay away from flaxseed. It is about the healthiest thing you can eat combined with cottage cheese, neither the CC nor the Flax seed seed retain their original state but turn into a very healthy supplement.

Please do check out the Budwig diet. It is a miracle that has healed many of cancer and heart disease and diabetes. My daughter is allergic to soy and almost died due to the soy lecithin which was hidden on the ingredients list.

Thank G-d she was close to a hospital where they were able to get an epi-shot into her. She MUST carry an epi-pen with her at all times.

I am also a non-gmo freak and there is no way anyone can tell me the stuff is safe. The myth, and that is what it is- a myth that soy is in someway bad for you is an unfortunate lie being told over and over again!

Soy is nearly a perfect food, the phytoestrogen it contains is nothing like animal estrogens that have been linked to cancer. God gave us soy to eat, buy organic and eat to your hearts content! Or in your classification of organic? Or is it a myth that soy converts to MSG in the body? Yes, allergy to soy is a lie. Next time I am in the er in anaphylaxis I will just say to myself, walk it off.

Soy allergy is a lie. I am totally sure the blood allergy tests are a lie too. I am also allergic to nuts and eggs. My son is allergic to beef and pork, although just hives. Unless you have had your airway almost swollen shut then you should really keep your uneducated opinion to yourself. Please check your information before posting. Soy especially GMO soy contains phytoestrogens which even though may be natural is not good for everyone.

Estrogen driven cancers are worsened with phytoestrogens. Soy lecithin is poisonous to me. Soy was good at one point, but in this case if you eat it raw it will kill you because its poisonous in its basic form. Fermented in low quantities has been OK for thousands of years in the Orient. But some idiot found that processing the Tard out of it was soo cheap the money was so easy to be made from it. They paid for US to use it and enough paid out to look away from the bad side of it.

What about soy lecithin and hypothyroidism? Is it a problem to have some in my organic acai breakfast smoothie. I bought protein powder and they say that it contains mg of soy lecithin per serving.

I drink it twice a day so its mg. Is this to much? I am TTC and a acupuncture lady said no soy for me. But its hard to find price decent protein powders with NO soy.

Of all the protein powders I found this one has no soy and it tastes brilliant i think because all it has in it is whey. Kamila, I have never understood why anyone would use protein powders.

Protein is so complex and is found in animal and plant sources when combined properly—if you are vegetarian. Have you tried hemp protein? Hemp seed are a complete protein, which are easily digested, and if grown in Australia they are also organic. It is legal to purchase them in Australia and take them overseas to be consumed however it is illegal to eat them in Australia.

They do not have the effects of marijuana. I have a question. I was told by a midwife that if I take a soy lethicin supplement it will help me heal from ligament stretching in my pelvis. I was unable to walk for two months after the last baby I had and am now pregnant again. Right now I avoid most soy in processed food unless it happens to be in chocolate or eggs in the wintertime feed.

What can I do as I have been told that soy is bad. Your article is saying different and unfortunately I am just taking peoples word about soy because I am not a nutritionist. I do not want to harm the baby as it grows but also would like to avoid this pain after the birth too.

Hello Kim, If your midwife thinks lecithin is a good idea, you could try either sunflower or eggyolk lecithin. I had to use crutches and cried in pain everyday. Good luck and always heal yourself naturally xx. Our cultures have lost the ancient wisdoms handed down by mid-wives and natural healers.

The accepted medical supporters today regurgitate what they have been taught, much of which is good, other stuff, not so much. Anything not accepted by Big Pharma and the bought medical system are tossed out as quackery. My mum was killed by the med profession when in hospital when she was not allowed to bring in her magnesium supplements, so I speak from experience, and resentment.

She was simply being assessed at the age of 74, in a hospital suite, for independent living. RiboCein is what we use to increase the natural production of intracellular glutathione and by increasing glutathione gsh inflammation goes down and pain disappears.

Usually allergies are a result of less than perfect immune system and this some times can be corrected. The benefits of increasing glutathione production are too many to list here but allergies gone could be one of them. What about lecithin supplements derived from sunflower seeds? Your article mentions various sources for lecithin, but discusses only soy-derived lecithin.

I have a problem with soya and soya products. But what is the reason behind this? The other 30 converts to MSG and describes a handful of negative effects all the way to liver failure… Article is http: By law lecithin sold in the US cannot contain more than 0. The internet is a wonderful thing anyone including me can write it and it becomes fact or truth. You CB are right about one thing: If they extract 70 percent protein from the soy then it is not 70 that stays in it.

This extraction in the article par. I take soy lecithin as a supplement because of the high phosphatidyl serine content. Should I stop taking it?

My daughter suffered from severe eczema last year but now it is under control. I have however noticed that eating kinder chocolate or tunacks tea cake she breaks out in a nettle like rash and is very itchy, both these products contain soya leithcin. She is still young to get an allergy test but was wondering if she has a soya allergy? This is an important issue with women who have estrogen-positive breast cancer.

So now another safe way to deliver vitamin C is no longer safe? We were taking the new kind of delivery system by LiveOn Labs, of soy nanobubbles delivering dissolved C straight through the gut into the bloodstream. This is heartbreaking to me, because my cousin has this breast cancer and we both felt it was safe based on several articles and one medical study abstract, but she has developed new tumors in spite of doing everything she can to filter her water, give up processed foods, changing to organic toiletries, and in general reading all labels.

She is off the lipospheric C and now just takes the Ester C. Hello Tess, There is another very effective way to take vitamin C, dissolve the crystals in water with half as much baking soda and after it stops fizzing, drink. Here is a video of Captain Randall the author of Forbidden Healing showing how: I have not seen this, but do wonder how the baking soda helps get it through the gut without breaking down the C. I will certainly check this out. My husband and I also take the liposomal vitamin c though, we make our own and really like the way it works.

I have often wondered whether or not the soy lecithin has an effect on my hormones. It seems when I take it my mood changes. We have, however, used sunflower lecithin as a substitute, but I am not sure that it works as well as soy lecithin. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that there are other lecithins on the market. After reading about the use of sunflower lecithin in dark chocolate, I am wondering if the amount of sunflower lecithin just needs to be changed in liposomal vitamin c.

Please take a look at the research ers associated with grassrootshealth net or carole baggerly. And check out vitamindcouncil org. Among its uses by different cells of the body: You body may or may not need it in different quantities eg, used up faster when fighting the flu, cancer, etc. A lot of recent US maladies have likely come from the advice of using sunscreen so much rather than get the minutes of midday UVB sunlight needed for health.

Some research even shows indoor workers with 3x rate of melanoma than those who work outside less UVB and higher UVA since in part windows filter out UVB so roll down window during the middle day for at least a few minutes if you can. Please look at the research and try this natural..

It correlates low in people with many types of cancers. Sample Carole quote from skinnymom com: Very, very committed to pursuing primary prevention, especially through the active use of vitamin D. I am not sure that is all you are doing, but you may want to read up on the Gerson Protocol and all other literature that promotes a healthy raw whole-foods diet to help with cancer. Mayo Clinic has a web site that sates no male child should ever be put on soy milk, due to estrogen content.

Also, that any male still wishing to have children should avoid soy, as it will reduce testosterone levels. China and Japan have a long history of high soy consumption and they now have the highest populations.

Japan also had among the lowest breast cancer rates in the world until about a decade ago when the birth control pill was made legal.

Ergo, it has not increased breast cancer rates in any noticeable way. Can anyone comment about soy and infertility in men? Lecithin is a major ingredient in Sperm. There seems to be some information out there, that increasing intake of raw eggs or soy lecithin can really increase sperm volume.

Would liver also help this? I guess it has Choline but not sure. Seems like the wise choice would be cage free, good diet, raw eggs in a smoothie perhaps. I mean Soybean oil with show up in a can of water based Tuna! Some Soy products have to be worse than others. Or using a healthy as i can find Stir Fry sauce. Which is a really tough task. Their all mostly salty MSG crap! If anything, soy increases fertility. Only assumptions based on similarity to estrogren.

High intake levels of soy and soy products have been shown to produce or add to your estrogen levels, lowering sperm count and T-levels lots of effects for men. Normal intake of soy is about 25 grams, but as I get older and my natural ability to produce T decreases, I have reduced the amount of soy intake.

For women an increased chance of breast and cervical cancer may exist with high levels of estrogen. Also bone density will decrease if the levels of T decreases. Just think of T levels being inversely proportional to estrogen levels as a rule of thumb.

No, I know both sides of the soy issue and choose to stay away unless it is fermented and then only in moderation. Soy formula was approved by WIC back in and now those women who were fed soy formula have thyroid issues.

Breast cancer rates are ever increasing and girls as young as 7 are starting their periods and developing breasts. Too much is unknown. Found the article on sugar very enlightening, thank you.

Please explain to me if soy protein powder, which I have been taking for years as a supplement, is harmful to me. I assume it is not fermented. I am female aged 75 and I run and lift weights. Thank you Regards Carla. Even then in moderation. I too wonder who is paying Chris to pass out this mis-information. This goes for Dr. Most times you can simply follow the money to their opinion.

So from reading this it seams to me that men should do their best to not consume any soy products or flax seed? I would never consume anything soy especially if it is not Non GMO and or fermented.

Get sunflower lecithin instead. If your child has food allergies ie: My guess is the soy foundation! Soy may not be dangerous for the body but most of it is made with seriously dangerous toxic for the soil, air, water and people living closed by, so for the sake of supporting a better environment, including the people living around, I strongly suggest we all get off soy totally.

Lecithin from sunflower, eggs, liver, pollen, etc. I am a food lover but always make sure what i am putting into my stomach before taking it. I had severe sinus infections for almost 6 years after living in a mold infested house. I tried everything to get rid of them and eventually found one site that suggested Soy Lecithin might be connected to sinus inflammation. I cut it out and the sinus infections stopped. My father[ageyr] under treatment for moderate to severe dementia of Alzheimer type with both drugs [ mamentine HCL in morning and Donep in night- each 10 mg.

And they put it in infant formula. Hi Chris, the great dr Jensen highly recommended soy lecithin. Are you aware of the studies using flax seed that helped the body metabolize estrogen into the cancer protective metabolites? You stuck to facts and put things in perspective. An answer to that question could have been the most important part of your article.

I would like an answer to that, too. Elevated cholesterol and hypothyroid seem to go hand in hand. What can we do to lower our cholesterol? I found another source that said soy lecithin powder has had the estrogens and other toxic compounds removed but that the granulated form has soybean oil mixed with the powder and does contain some of these compounds.

Is this enough to be concerned about, and why would they add soybean oil to the soy lecithin powder? Soy Lecithin is now commonly used as a mixing emulsifier, especially with chocolate. I so wish Soy lecithin was taken out of everything and rated as a poison. I might one day be able to live here without being in fear of digesting Soy lecithin. I assume this would also apply to infant formula. Carolyn, from what I can glean, soy lecithin is much higher in phosphatides than sunflower lecithin.

I believe the concerns of the soy source are overblown. According to Carlson Wade, author of Lecithin Book, What You Need to Know, published , the best lecithin is pure lecithin granules which contain over 95 percent phosphatides and about 2 percent soybean oil.

Soy formula sets your baby up for thryoid issues, breast cancer and for boys a low sperm count. All the formulas which is given to newborns as well come with soy lecithin as an emulsifier.

The two latest comments about soy lecithin are interesting but when mentioning sources of lecithin fail to mention sunflower lecithin: Lecithin has long been used as a health supplement.

Here are some of the benefits: Actually, this article is a better source: I take soy lecithin daily. From day one, I noticed improvement in my short term memory. I am worried a little about the estrogen effect but so far I have no problem. Hi just wanted to weigh in on soy.

Being an RD I like to keep up to date with current research and recommendations. This is a great article that talks about soy and cancer risk, which many people are still very afraid of eating any soy, should alleviate some concerns. Soyfoods and Cancer http: I had so much good cholesterol the doc told me to keep doing whatever the hell I was doing. I stopped taking it due to some research suggesting it would mishape blood cells, but im thinking low dose lecethin supplementation could be a good thing?

Wish I could find a diet like Nutrisystem that used whey-based products and not soy. I am an estrogen-positive breast cancer survivor and am quite overweight, and due to back issues cannot exercise. If anyone is aware of a meals-delivered diet company that has a good concentration of soy-free products, please let me know!

I am desperate to get this weight off because I know my chances for survival are much better if I do. You should take a look at Soylent contrary to the name it is not a Soy based food. It does contain a small amount of Soy Lecithin, but other than that it is primarily made up of Oats, Brown Rice, and Corn. Where do you live? Google and see if there are any companies near you that make fresh paleo meals weekly — these will not have any soy in them.

And please know that all calories are not created equal! Eat whole foods, cut out all the processed junk to include soda- diet and regular , and get rid of grains and that will help you get rid of the weight!

Like a couple of other posts I am a breastfeeding mother who is having issues with recurrent blocked milk ducts. Lecithin supplements are recommended to prevent clogged ducts but the advised dosage is mg daily.

Would you be able to offer any advice? I tried skimming through all these comments, FIRST, to see if my question was addressed, but I did not see it — so please forgive me if it was discussed already.

What can you, Mr. Kresser tell me about this — and would you please respond to my e-mail? I am very allergic to soy, with a very specific reaction that differs from my other allergies.

It has been difficult to find the soy in my diet recently. After looking up one of the E ingredients E , I found that it is lecithin, and most likely soy.

I am certain that this is the source of my recent problems. It angers me to see sources saying that soy lecithin and soy oil do not affect people with soy allergy. It is also frustrating that most milk products are having soy added to them canned milk and powdered milk. I drink fresh milk, but I like to use stronger milk as a sweetener. Even makeups are switching ingredients to soy. I all of a sudden have a reaction, and find they have changed their formulae.

I have contacted several companies, but unless other people do to, it feels hopeless that things will get safer. Watch what you eat, most animals fed Soy lecithin, have it in their meat and eggs.

I can only eat one egg a day, anymore and I get Soy lecithin sickness. Chris where are your federal based evidence data in this sory? And China bans direct consumption of GM soy. Although outside the scope of this article, which is health focused, I wanted mention that some people like me avoid soy for policial reasons. There is over production of GMO soy in this country and it is ruining our biodiveristy and putting small farmers organic and non out of business.

Kresser has written about before???? It is not an allergy. I was given two boxes of wonderful sounding tea for Christmas…but with soy lecithin…. Do I avoid them to be safe, or can I enjoy them guilt free? Anyone with thyroid issues should avoid all soy products.

You also say, that products have so little amount in them. Please clarify, Thank you. Forget about what the studies so far are telling us, but in terms of the actual compounds or processes themselves, most of them hold some sort of potential health risk.

You say it yourself, soy lecithin appears in all kinds of foods, I know, because I am going out of my way to avoid it, a job which calls for huge determination!
