Soy Protein Reduces Feelings of Hunger To Help You Lose Weight

By Dr. Aaron Tabor, M.D.
Medical Research Director at Revival Soy

CBN.com - An estimated 61 percent of American adults are now considered overweight or obese, with the biggest weight gain among Baby Boomers age 50 and older. Although this generation is taking more preventive health measures such as routine mammograms, prostate screenings and physicals, the 50-plus crowd has nearly doubled its weight over the past two decades.

Even though millions of us spend untold amounts of money in an attempt to lose weight, Americans are heavier than ever. As we grow older, and exercise less, the task of staying fit and trim becomes even more difficult. And while a sensible diet combined with exercise is still the best answer, new research shows that soy can play a major role in helping you achieve your weight loss goals faster.

A significant number of research studies support claims that soy consumption can help you lose weight. Soy protein is a low-fat source of high-quality protein (compared to many other protein sources) that can help you build lean muscle mass.

1) Soy protein helps you feel fuller longer.

Recent medical studies show soy protein helps you feel less hungry, and helps you feel fuller longer (1). Eating soy may work by causing your stomach to send an “I’m full” messages to your brain (2). This helps reduce the urge to snack between meals and late at night - two major causes of weight gain.

2) Soy protein is “low-carb.”

As a naturally low-carb food, soy is the perfect supplement to any weight loss plan, including popular “low-carb” and “high-protein” diets.

3) Soy protein has a “low-glycemic index.”

Not only is soy protein low in carbs and fat, but it also has a low-glycemic index which means it won't cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels after consumption (3). This prevents over secretion of insulin (insulin causes the unwanted effect of storing extra sugar in your bloodstream as body fat). Stable blood sugar and insulin levels mean fewer hunger cravings and fewer calories being stored as fat.

In summary, soy protein combined with exercise and a healthy diet makes an excellent “partner” in a successful weight loss plan.


Revival Soy makes getting enough soy simple and delicious. With Revival Soy, you can be sure you’re getting enough soy isoflavones in your daily diet—without the soy taste. And you can take comfort in knowing you’re using the #1 doctor-recommended soy protein supplement, backed by clinical studies and many patented benefits.

Just 1 small Revival shake or protein bar gives you the amount of soy isoflavones found in 6 cups of a typical soymilk (160 milligrams). A recent panel of international soy experts recommended up to 160 milligrams of soy isoflavones per day for all of the health benefits of soy.
