Lose The Soy Latte
Are you ordering soy milk in your coffee thinking it's the healthy choice?
Are YOU One Of The 80% of Americans Eating This So-Called "Healthy" Plant Food PROVEN To Age You Faster, Increase Belly Fat And Disrupt Your Hormones?
Soy is another fad that has come and will hopefully go. Just like the scam of margarine, soy was pushed as a healthy alternative to milk but the results speak for themselves. We have been deceived into believing that soybean oil and other soy products like soy milk, and tofu can help you burn more belly fat. This is absolutely not the case! I agree that milk needs to be substituted, but choose an alternative like almond or coconut milk instead. Personally, almond milk is my go to, and has the following health benefits:
- No cholesterol and low in sodium
- High in omega fatty acids, Vitamin E & B's
The truth is that soy does have the following:
Natural toxins: Which impair your digestive system.
Phytates: Which prevent you from absorbing certain minerals.
Enzyme inhibitors: Hinder protein digestion.
Goitrogens: Interfere with your thyroid function and metabolism.
Phytoestrogens: Which mimic the fat storing hormone estrogen. They're also shown to increase your risks of hypothyroidism.
Haemaggluttin: Which causes red blood cells to cluster and inhibit oxygen intake and growth.
There are little to no organic NON-GMO soy beans in the United States which is a huge part of the problem. The toxins from the pesticides get absorbed in your gut creating yet another chemical stress, as well as inflammation that you definitely can do without. Soybeans are soaked in hexane for the oil removal process which is extremely toxic. However, the FDA does not set a maximum residue level in soy foods for hexane. Once again thanks for nothing FDA!
So next time you grab your coffee on the go, remember to use an alternative like almond milk or coconut milk. Starbucks does not offer this option and for this reason I refuse to go near them. Coffee bean on the other hand at least an almond milk/ coconut milk combo. I do not endorse either and almost always make my own coffee at home, because I can trust myself to use alkaline water and organic almond milk.
