I'm on the pill and without that I break out, that was before being veg though, so I must already be imbalanced, haha.
I'd love to know if there is a connection.. I'm trying to lose weight and not being very successful, I've been good at it before, back when I was an omni sadly, but now I'm struggling. Makes me wonder if I'm missing something or if yea, the excess in soy is working against me?
Have you tried almond milk?? That might be nice on your cereal and in coffee.. and no soy
I don't really eat much soy meat.. hardly ever infact. It's just soymilk i'm having in my oats and just started drinking chocolate soymilk as a treat...
Oh and tofu from my local noodle box once a week. Love that
Cutting out simple carbs (white or overly processed bread, pasta, rice, potatoes) should help you with weight loss, focus mainly on fresh vegetables & fruit, nuts, seeds, legumes, beans etc... Whatever carbs you do eat, have them earlier in the day and stick to veggies for dinner.
I can't see soy being an inhibitor for weight loss at all but you could always cut it out for a fortnight and see if you find an improvement with your skin?
Weight loss does honestly come down to calories in, calories out and as much as some people can't stand counting calories, it's helpful to know a little bit about the amount of calories in what you're eating & aim for a deficit either through eating less calorie dense foods or through exercise.
I don't mind almond milk, not a fan of it in a coffee though but have been having rice milk on cereal.. Have decided not having coffee isn't such a bad thing, was a little worried about getting stained teeth from my coffee habit and it set me off to crave bad foods for the rest of the day.
Also! If you are working out opt to do some weight training, building lean muscle will raise your metabolic rate & you'll burn more calories just sitting on your butt
