Dieting is rarely any fun, but then we don’t diet specifically to have fun. Instead we diet to lose weight, which in the long run allows us to do more of the things we love, and those things are fun. Since the dieting process itself is generally not a ‘fun’ experience, why not choose a diet that provides more than just weight loss benefits? As long as we are going to commit ourselves to obtaining the weight loss benefits that come with dieting, we might as well choose a diet that gives us multiple benefits or ‘more bang for our buck’. Soy diets make an excellent choice because they can provide many weight loss benefits. A soy diet can offer any of us the benefits that come with losing weight, but also can offer us the health benefits associated with soy protein.
Dieters in the soy diet conducted by Revival Products weight loss clinical trial lost a remarkable 26 pounds on average in just 16 weeks, including excellent belly fat loss of about 25%. During this 16-week diet study, dieters lost nearly four times more weight on the soy diet eating and physical activity plan than dieters, in a separate study, who used a leading weight loss pill and lost only about 8 pounds.
Dieters following the soy diet consumed approximately 1,200 calories per day and participated in physical activity six days per week, while dieters in the weight loss pill study consumed 1,200 to 1,600 calories per day. Average starting weight of study participants following the soy diet part of my diet plan was 206 pounds, compared to 160 pounds on the diet pill plan. It is clear from this that soy diets are a good way to lose weight, but offer more than just weight loss.
Soy diets also offer the benefits that come with eating protein on a daily basis. Many of the foods that are common parts of a good soy diet are low-glycemic, meaning that they do not cause a rapid rise in blood sugar. Low-glycemic choices slowly release energy to your body, helping you to fight off between-meal hunger cravings. Another clinical trial found that our patented, naturally concentrated soy protein bars and soy protein shakes support beauty from the inside out. Therefore, diets where soy protein is used regularly also can support healthy looking skin, hair, and nails. Soy diets may also be beneficial for women suffering from common discomforts of menopause, like hot flashes and night sweats, since numerous research studies have shown that soy and/or isoflavones can help alleviate these common menopausal discomforts. Lastly, the FDA has concluded that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Overall, soy diets can provide a number of benefits above and beyond just healthy weight loss. So why put up with any old diet, when you can choose a soy-based plan and reap the weight loss benefits and more?
