Remembering Kevin Moore

ATLCX (Episode 22): The Truth About Soy | Dr. Kaayla Daniel


NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 22 of “Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts,” we hit on an issue that should concern every Paleo, low-carb and especially vegan/vegetarian dieter out there. People are now becoming increasingly aware of the many health dangers associated with using and consuming soy and soy-based food products. Unfortunately, this also means a lot of the so-called low-carb packaged foods like protein bars that many in the low-carb community may be consuming. While this product marketed as “health” food is heavily promoted to consumers as an optimal meal replacement and an adequate protein alternative to meats, the reality is there are a lot more risks associated with eating this stuff than most people realize.

Our guest in Episode 22 this week is “The Naughty Nutritionist” herself Dr. Kaayla Daniel who knows just a thing or two about this subject. Her book The Whole Soy Story gives all the down and dirty details about what makes soy a less-than-stellar choice for your dining pleasure. In case you missed it, be sure to listen to my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast interview with Dr. Daniel from 2010 in Episode 386 where she provided a lot of really great information on this topic that will coincide quite well with what she shared in this podcast. It was such a pleasure having soy expert Dr. Kaayla Daniel joining us on ATLCX to take on your questions about this so-called “health” food in EPISODE 22 on August 16, 2012.

Listen to Dr. Kaayla Daniel give you “The Truth About Soy”:

  • Many people who go low-carb also thing they need to be plant-based too
  • Soy is linked to a whole series of health complications that run the gamut
  • The biggest problem with people eating soy is low thyroid issues
  • Soy is promoted as a health food because it’s a good marketing strategy
  • The image problem with soy needed a makeover to be sold to consumers
  • The soy industry gave their product an “upscale” image calling it healthy
  • People don’t perceive soy as an ingredient as “cheapening of the product”
  • Soy is showing up in 60% of the packaged foods out there
  • Avoid the packaged foods and just stick to real food to avoid soy
  • Many of the vegans are “harming themselves a great deal” eating soy
  • Vegan propaganda makes vegans think they are doing something healthy
  • The New Atkins For A New You book contains soy in the vegetarian plan
  • We see the mainstream promoting the vegan diet as superior and catering to it
  • Supporting your local farms and farmers choosing real foods is ideal
  • Eat just a little bit of edamame and it’s probably not a big deal for you
  • It’s sold it great big bags and people tend to eat a lot more of it
  • Tofu is a problem too if people are over-consuming it in their diet
  • If you like lima beans, then eat those (with LOTS of butter on them!)
  • Does processing of soy into soy milk make it any healthier?
  • Soy milk is not a traditional food and was popularized in Asia by missionaries
  • The motives of the American 7th Day Adventists were good, but products were not
  • The soy milk products are low-fat and have inferior vitamins and minerals
  • Companies that make soy milk are all catering to the vegan market
  • They put “inferior vegan supplements” into the soy milk
  • If you want to supplement for your bones, take a supplement instead of soy milk
  • Getting good raw milk is a far healthier real food to consume
  • Whether the soy in animal feed will impact humans who consume the soy-fed meats
  • Soy phytoestrogens will effect consumers, especially those with allergies
  • People think they are allergic to the meats, but it’s the soy in them
  • Working with farmers to get a soy-free feed although it costs a bit more

  • Eating soy-fed meats can impact the thyroid and look for online meat retailers
  • Farmer feeding his cattle old chocolate candy bars instead of corn
  • At the turn of the 19th Century, the distillery leftovers were fed to cows
  • Feeding cows chocolate is not a natural diet for them to be consuming
  • The USDA worked hard on figuring out how to include more soy in animal diets
  • There was only so much soy they could feed animals before the animal died early
  • If the animal gets fat sooner and dies, that’s considered a plus
  • The sooner they fatten up the cows, the better
  • Whether the tofu-based shirataki noodles are okay to consume in your diet
  • I can’t imagine why people would spend a lot of money to buy a food like this
  • If you want noodles on your low-carb diet, then just get a spaghetti squash
  • If you get sick from eating soy, then you should feel blessed you caught it
  • Those people who DON’T get sick are the ones at risk of worse problems

  • Many of the symptoms of soy are covered up with prescription medications
