Apparently I survived it though, so I decided to test fate again and try the same combination another time. I must be why Darwin's Theory remains one.You're a much braver man than I, or at the very least, stronger in constitution than I. I'm just waiting for the day they make a soy juice that actually tastes like milk, instead of a vanilla milkshake. I miss my granola breakfast cereal, dammit. :-(
Soy is absolute garbage, but due to financial constraints I've been forced to substitute it for milk as often as I can.
I've also read that high consumption of soy products can lower your testosterone levels, but there isn't highly conclusive research on that, however much of the bodybuilding community avoid it like the plague read into it what you may, but I tend to be skeptical of it.
Now I hear you saying "Wait milk? What?"
Not sure about your local supermarket but there should be a lactose free milk range. If not, I'd search around for some it's more common than you'd think, I haven't tried powdered milk but you can order powdered lactose free milk from the internets. Not sure how long you've been deprived of milk for, but man, the moment I discovered it I was so excited I almost hopped and skipped like a schoolgirl.
Currently over cereal but you better believe I ate cereal everyday, oftentimes substituting or eating it immediately after a main when I discovered the miracle of lactose free milk.
