Default Just Say No To Soy!

So Layne emailed me this article the other day

http://diabetes.diabetesjournals.org...full/57/5/1176

Basically it demonstrates that Soy increases AMPK activity, which is a negative regulator of mTOR, which itself is the main stimulator of skeletal muscle protein synthesis

So not only is Soy low in leucine content, but it actually inhibits protein synthesis!
