    You've read the diet books. You know the advice by heart. Lower your calorie intake, and TestMax Nutrition increase your activity level. Another popular piece of advice is, "less carbohydrates, more protein." Yeah, we know. Pasta, pizza, pop tarts, bread should be eaten in moderation, or not at all. Dieticians, weight loss specialists, physicians, personal trainers all agree that "lean protein" is one of the most important ingredients that can help a person burn fat, build muscles and lose inches around their thighs, waist, and buttocks. A Lean protein includes foods like turkey, chicken, eggs (in moderation), egg whites, and fish. How much animal meat and fish can a person consume before it gets old? People who are trying to lose weight and gain overall wellness need another source of protein to help them achieve their weight loss and wellness goals. A possible answer? Soy. The benefits of soy protein are large in number. Soy is beginning to be one of the leading nutritional and weight loss foods on the market today. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has confirmed that food contain soy protein may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The FDA has also stated that 25 grams of soy protein a day can reduce heart disease by decreasing blood cholesterol levels. lso, protein is harder for the body to digest, causing a person to feel fuller longer. The idea connected with this is the more protein consumed, the less overall calories consumed, causing weight loss. Need another reason to incorporate soy into your diet? How about increased lung function? "People who eat lots of soy products have better lung function and are less likely to develop the smoking-associated lung disease COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). A new study has shown that consumption of a wide variety of soy products can be associated with a reduction in the risk of COPD and other respiratory symptoms" (Hirayama, Lee, Binns, Zhao, Hiramatsu, 2009).
