Which protein powder is better for high activity/weight loss? Soy or whey?

Which protein powder is better for high activity/weight loss? Soy or whey? Topic: Which protein powder is better for high activity/weight loss? Soy or whey?
December 11, 2019 / By Hiel
Question: I'm getting ready for a boxing match, meaning I need enough energy to continue working out 2-3 hours a day, but I also need to lose a little bit of weight over the next month. Right now, I take whey protein after workouts, since I've heard it digests quickly, but I saw a good deal on soy protein isolate. The soy has nothing else in it, basically 90% pure protein, while the whey has sugar and chocolate flavour. What are the pros and cons of each? Could I use the soy in conjunction with whey, or choose one or the other? I've heard great stuff about whey, but would soy be better in this case since it's not full of carbs? I eat a very healthy diet, I just don't want my weight loss to be hindered by chocolate flavors. I appreciate the answers, but I'm not looking for diet advice. I follow a very specific training and nutrition plan. I'd just like some specific advice about protein.

It's hard for everyone to lose weight and make healthy choices-but drink plenty of water-no soda, beer, fried food, junk food, eat plenty of fruits veggies, and lean protien. Try to work out every morning on an empty stomach, jog, walk, bike, swim, in the afternoon do weight training, and in the evening after dinner, go for a walk. Good luck!

Elpalet Originally Answered: Is "Whey protein light" from "Protein Factory" a good product ("The First Whey Protein Isolate for Fat Loss")?
You are definately on the right track with Whey Protein Isolate but I wouldn't buy "Whey Protein Light" due to the fat loss claim. It isn't a bad product but its the same amount of calories, fat, carbs and protein as many similar whey protein isolate products and the ingredients are just average. It won't hurt an eating & exercise program designed to loose fat as it does curb the appetite but one of the real appeals of whey protein isolate is that it provides the body with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used for building muscle tissue. (It helps to know your daily protein needs based on your weight and activity level) Compare the "Whey Protein Light" to a similar product: BRAND: Whey Protein Light (2.5 lb) : Calories 180 Fat 0 Carb 6 Protein 35 Hydrolyzed Whey Isoplate, Cocoa, Malted Milk Powder, Sucralose And check the nutrition profile: (It doesn't break down the amino acid profile.) http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/pfac/l... ----------------------------------- Random search on same web site: (Slight difference in size) BRAND: Syntrax Essence (2.03 Lbs) Calories 100 Fat 0 Carb 1 Protein 23 Ingredients Protein Blend [Dairy Proteins (Whey Protein Isolate*, Milk Protein Isolate**, Soy Protein Isolate***, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten****], Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Lecithin, Salt, Acesulfame-K, Sucralose * A Milk-Derived Protein; Promina™ Brand; Ultraflitered And Undenatured; Includes Beta Lactoglobulib, Alpha Lactoferrin, Glycomacropeptides, Immunoglobulin, B.s.

Roxy Originally Answered: does excess whey protein turn into fat? does taking whey protein speed up the fat burning process?
protein does not get turned into fat. it will just be flushed out. taking whey protein will speed up the fat burning process aka metabolism if ur doing wweightlifting or toning exercises to help keep ur muscle mass and / or increase them. i take it for breakfast, but u still need a little bread for some sugars and fiber to get u started off. oatmeal with 4-5 raisins is good. whey protein will not block the burning of ur fat. fat never never turns into muscle. muscle building is seperate from losing fat. u need half ur weight in pounds. if ur 150 pounds, u need 75 grams of protein. if ur a serious athlete, ull need at least 85 grams. fat does not turn into muscle. they are different things. the answerer below is wrong. sorry. u can have muscles and still have fat overlap ur body. u can be thin and also have muscles. be thin by having a good, healthy diet and cardio exercises.
