Soy And Weight Gain Affecting Menopausal Women

Women have been obsessed with their weight for years. They try one fad diet after another, only to gain back the pounds, plus some!

I never had a weight problem, always ate everything in moderation, played racquetball 3 times a week, and was so uncomfortable for eight years! My weight climbed from 118lbs to 150lbs! Blood work revealed nothing!

Doctors said “it’s menopause” and to increase my soy intake. I had soy protein drinks for breakfast, soy protein bars for a snack, and a healthy dinner – so I thought.

In 2003, I developed a severe allergy to soy (the anaphylactic shock type) and spent 4 days in the ICU. Doctors said it was food poisoning – it wasn’t! It was an allergy to soy!

I had a soy veggie burger for dinner the night before – and that’s what did me in! My body had enough. I learned soy and weight gain for menopausal women can lead to developing a thyroid problem. I was lucky I didn’t develop this disease.

I read that Oprah has a thyroid problem—she’s a big promoter of soy, and I believe that is what caused her problem. Did you know that Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of “Wisdom of Menopause” also has a thyroid problem? She too promotes soy – and counsels Oprah. Is this a coincidence?

Soy is in practically everything and it’s nothing but cheap filler. Did you know that it could enhance the growth of tumors in cancer survivors? What about the problems with soy infant formulas?

There are many ingredients that you need to learn about because the label won’t always tell you. You need to know what to look for. It’s in vegetable oils, most canned tunas, cereals, and processed foods, just to name a few.

Now is the time has come for all of us to ban together to make real changes in the food manufacturing industry. The health of the nation may depend on the answers.

I would like you to claim your free chapter of my book, The Hidden Dangers of Soy, and also receive soy free recipes.
