Soy is very controversial. It contains phytoestrogen, which can act like regular estrogen in some people. I am one of those people. When I eat soy, I have cramps, break out, gain weight, and have a host of female problems. However some people say it helps reduce your risk of other female problems.
Regardless, 90+% of soy is genetically modified and contains ungodly amounts of pesticides.
While some cultures eat a lot of soy, they don't eat it genetically modified like we do, and they always ferment the soy to make it more easily digestible, also reducing the estrogen content.
I had a baby 5 months ago, my 3rd baby in 4 years, and my body has taken a beating! Where is the best place to start? My abs are pretty weak, and I had a lot of problems with them during this pregnancy. I'm only a little overweight, but my ab muscles are destroyed. What program is best to start at?
