I'm doing some research for a paper for school that discusses all of the reasons why soy is not the health food so many people seem to think it is. I've found plenty of credible sources for that. I also want to discuss why this myth is so... (more)
There are a few threads regarding soy sauce, I know... Apparently a lot of celiac Japanese enjoy soy sauce (with wheat) without issue. Then a lot of Americans claim it makes them terribly ill. I'm probably not celiac. I try to keep... (more)
Fish sauce is my answer to all things soy sauce. It makes a strong statement on your food and you only need a small dose instead of a drenching. Fermenting certainly changes things but that science is above my knowledge.
I would like to ask if any of you knows of any PS NOT MADE of, or from Soy (Soy Lecithin is still Soy) because I have a tendency to have high Estrogen levels and since I eliminated Soy milk and Soy Lecithin Spray non fat spray butter, my estrogen... (more)
So I was reading a guide on Japanese soy sauces and apparently Japanese celiacs observe no ill effects from having soy sauce that was brewed with wheat in it: "*A note about gluten intolerance and soy sauce. Much of the wheat gluten is broken... (more)

the tuna I get (every brand in my stores has it, and the one brand I found without it is double the price per tin) is "tuna, vegetable broth, salt" and the can says allergen warning: contains soy. is this a big deal for paleo? i know rob wolf... (more)
During my period I get frequent migraines (as far as I can tell it has something to do with fluctuating estrogen levels) and drinking a glass of soy milk when I feel one coming on is the only thing I have found that stops them. Any less harmful... (more)
I'm under the impression that phytoestrogens and phytate are the main reasons non-soy-sensitive people avoid soy in the first place, and phytate is more of a "less-is-better" thing than something you need to avoid 100% in order to benefit. So if... (more)
So, I've been Paleo since August or so, but not super strict or anything because I'm a broke college student on a budget and can't exactly afford grass-fed all the time. Anyways, I just started Whole30 three days ago and I've been eating tuna and... (more)
What foods can improve estrogen levels and return cycles w/o being detrimental to health? Everything else is in the normal range (testosterone isn't high at all) and thyroid function is perfect. I just have low estrogen and I think this ceased my... (more)
Doc says I need 1000IU/day of vitamin D, and I agree that this amount is working very well to keep me out of the dumps. I'm taking a synthetic D3 supplement right now, and I'd like to switch to a natural source like fish oil or cod liver oil.... (more)
I was told that all soy is no good. But reading thru my book (see above) there is a page (126) that suggests edamame in the snacks area. Now I'm concerned about the entire book. What are your thoughts about raw edamame?
Hey ya'll, I'm looking at sustainable/eco-friendly clothing options. Ideally, I want to do a purge of all my useless stuff, give it away to the Salvation Army, and then slowly accumulate higher quality, comfier, better wicking clothing, that's... (more)
Ok, tbh my friend introduced me to this diet, and I really don't care for it that much except that I get to eat lots of meat and fat. I just have a few exceptions to it because I really can't live without these: -Grains. I love ethnic cuisines... (more)
I was telling a coworker today how unhealthy soy is for you. He seemed upset because soy and beans are his most common source of protein. What are the best sources of protein for a person who is vegan if they try to avoid soy and beans?

I have been unable to find a gluten and soy free Worcestershire sauce commercially-- does one exist? If not, is there are tried and true homemade recipe (perhaps using coconut aminos?) I currently use French's which is gluten free, but the soy... (more)
Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
Yep, another question related to breastfeeding! There will probably be more! :D (For those who read my previous questions, my body fought off the infection on its own and my nipples are doing so much better!!! :D But, I did use some... (more)
I have a bit of a hormone issue in that too much non-organic/raw dairy gives me hormonal facial acne. So let's say that I want to go to Starbucks for a very rare treat (free drink on my bday!). Which would be a better choice in terms of hormones:... (more)
My personal take on it is that if you don't do well with conventional dairy, and you're going for the occasional treat, I'd probably get the soy. I believe--please correct me if something's changed--that Starbucks uses organic soy milk. It's not... (more)
So in my CSA this week we got a small bunch of edamame, and the farmer emailed everyone and asked for feedback because he was thinking about planting more. Well, my feedback was of course a link outlining all of the dangers of... (more)
I keep being stunned when I read labels - chewing gum, salad dressing/condiments, dark chocolate even supplements! Is there a minimal amount one can consume safely? If not, how do you guys avoid it (especially when going out to eat)?
Hey gang Upon reading how healthy cocoa is and dark choclate...i have been eating half a bar of 85% cocoa dark chocolate per day for a few months I think that this may have lowered my testosterone..it is the only change in diet I have made... (more)
It is probably not the soy, one of your ex's may have hired someone to curse you, Voodoo is particularly effective for this purpose. Did any of them take hair clippings from you, or toenail clippings?
