Default Whey or Soy?

Which one is better--whey protein or soy protein?

I can slam down a whey shake no problem, but I actually like the taste of some shakes with soy in them. I thought that I heard once that whey was preferable for weightlifting, but I don't remember why.

Default Re: Whey or Soy?

use whey protein immediately after your workout. whey is a fast absorbing protein which means it gets to your muslces faster and right when they need it, after your workout [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] i also use whey when i first get up in the morning because my body is in a catabolic state from sleeping all night and not eating.

i use soy at times throughout the day as it is a slower absorbing protein.

Soy also raises estrogen levels in your body which is why a lot of BB avoid it.

Soy protein is hard to digest but is usually cheaper. You get more "bang" for the buck though by purchasing whey.
