    So I bought some of these EAS protein drinks cuz they were cheap and extremely low in carbs. After consuming a couple, I realized the first ingredient listed is soy protein isolate. How bad is this? Should I throw them all away? I'm not using them as a PWO drink, mainly as a quick snack

    lol...did it really make your tits grow? Sorry, don't mean to laugh. I drank soymilk for quite a while until I read about the conversion to an estrogen like chemical in the body. It then hit me I was unable to make any strength gains in the gym. I have nice manly pectorals. I'd hate to do anything to mess that up. I guess I quit in time. They weren't affected. when I went back to cow milk, I started making gains again. Maybe a coincidence. I don't know.

    There's just cheaper and better sources. If you want a high quality plant-source protein, Sun Warrior makes a really good brown rice protein.

    I'm lactose intolerant. I eat Clif Builder's when I'm in class because whey protein bars give me diarrhea and I'm not about to bring lactase pills with me everywhere I go. I don't have tits, and I'm not all that small for my height. You'll be fine.

    I was sponsored by sun warrior last year. It's really not the tastiest stuff ever at first (having sort of a stale grainy taste to it), but you can get used to it and it's perfectly fine blended with fruit ect.
    That said, if you're vegan it's a really good plant source protein.

    Side note: if you're drinking soy protein in the first place then rice isn't much less tasty.
