Anyone tried this stuff out, at under $5 a lb, it seems like a good deal? Anything I should be wary about with a pea protein
1. Ok, but why to see if i like it or not and to see how my body reacts and performs while taking it.
2. So is whey concentrate, rice protein, or gemma you are right. i didn't want to use gemma because it doesn't mix well, but rice protein would've been a good choice. i should've gotten a few lbs of rice and a few of soy and see what i liked better
3. Not really i've read a few articles and i think the only problem i've found is low bioavailability
4. How and why? just by giving me a more varied protein profile as well as taking me off dairy completely (again, I just want to see how my body does)
1. Fair enough, and how are you going to measure that?
2. good idea
3. you sure about that? Do a simple search around here
4. I can understand no dairy. But otherwise you can have lots of variety with non dairy protein without resorting to soy.
So, as the title of this article hints at, we want people to re-freakin-lax when it comes to soy. Moderate doses of whole-food soy proteins really are no big deal.
i've done a few searches on here and found a bunch of dorks regurgitating the same 'soy makes you a woman' nonsense. the people that i trust on the boards regarding nutrition have stated that there are studies on both sides of the fence as far as soy is concerned.
i'm all about reading more and learning. i won't ask you do do the searching for me, but if you could suggest a better resource or better way to search, i'd really appreciate it.
in retrospect, i got too much of the product, especially for just wanting to try something new. i should've gotten a lb. or two of each and gone from there.
