    soy is very bad for male bb'ers because it raises estrogen-whey is MUCH BETTER for MEN

    check out www.proteinfactory.com and read upon Whey article and a Soy Article. I don't see anything wrong w/ a little bit of soy, i use a bit before bed to slow down absorption of protein.

    Whey has a higher biological availability value than soy protein - which means that your body can utilize it more efficiently for packing on the mass....

    ...but like risky said...I don't see anything wrong with some soy in the diet....

    As long as it's not your sole source of protein, soy is a good addition to a bodybuilder's diet.

    i agree with ms. soy is a good addition, not a good
    primary choice. best bet, mix the proteins whey , soy,egg
    caseinate.....these combos will give you a time released effect
    so youre blood streams amino acid pool will be constantly topped
    off and youre muscles will have a constant supply of protein
    whey gets dumped really fast in the body so your muscles catabolize till your next meal
