Isolated Soy Protein And Why It’s Bad

I get a lot of emails asking about isolated soy protein and why it’s bad. First I should explain that I am a follower of Dr. John McDougal. McDougal advocates a low protein, high starch plant based diet. So I follow that by eating a lot of potatoes, rice and plenty of fruits and vegetables. The high starch diet philosophy is based on the fact that most successful cultures have lived off mostly whole grain carbohydrates. Rural Asians with their rice and Central America with their potatoes. All have a long and mostly disease free life and looking thin and beautiful well into old age. Both of these examples eat low protein diets compared to the United States. Large amounts of protein, particularly animal derived proteins in large amounts is bad. It triggers growth and the growth of cancer cells. I’m not a doctor or an expert on this subject so I have a little trouble explaining things like this. Luckily, Dr. McDougal has a wonderful video explaining protein and isolated soy protein. Watching this will open some of your eyes to mistakes you might be making in your vegan diet. It also explains the common foods isolated soy protein might be in and to look out for. Every vegan needs to watch this.

I’d also like you to watch this next video to understand more about Dr. McDougal‘s philosophy. He’s a brilliant man who knows his subject well. I go to his website often and I recommend you do to if you are interested in staying disease free and youthful appearing. I recommend starting on his HOT TOPICS page.

    I personally see starch intensive foods as being nutrionally wussy.
    They have a fairly lame nutrional profile and are mostly used as filler (for making you feel full). At least they are used that way in my house.

    I do enjoy potatoes in the winter time but seldom eat them any other time in the year. They have a warm, traditional, soothing quality.

    I personally think that eating food in an unprocessed form (or as close to as possible) is the healthiest way to go. I think raw is best. Althought I probably only eat 25-35% raw. Ha ha ha.

    I wouldn’t say that the potatoes or rice are the reason that these cultures have remained relatively svelt and disease free. It probably has more to do with the much reduced intake of animal products. Animal products are acid forming and allow disease and cancer to grow. And they contain more pesticides than vegetables.

    But it’s always a “he said, she said” kind of scenario. We can’t do much more than follow our instincts.

    Besides, potatoes and rice are so darn delicious! So eat up.
