Dear Soy...i Hate You!

Recommended Posts

Maybe that's what the nut job who ran on stage during Bob Dylan's performance years ago meant when he had "Soy Bomb" painted on his chest....... hmmm... It's everywhere, it's everywhere.

My question is: how long did it take to get over your soy reactions? It's been a week of no soy goodness and I still am having issues with my eyes itching and burning. I'm trying to figure out if I just need to hang tight and let my body clean out or if I need to start looking for yet another allergy (I'm down to veggies, fruit, meat and tiny amounts of rice and corn as it is!)

Soy for me causes instant chest pain, anxiety and heartburn that lasts for days. Soy oil and lecithin get me just as bad as whole soy. These problems didn't go away with just eliminating all soy; I had to go as far as all legumes. Peanuts, beans, peas... ALL of them cause these problems for me. Not as strongly as with soy, but they're definitely big problems for me. Just a thought.


Dx'd with Celiac June 2010 via positive biopsy. I got tested because both of my kids (3 and 5 years old) have multiple food intolerances, with gluten being the worst offender.

Free of: grains, dairy, soy, legumes, nightshades, nuts, fish, eggs, pork, citrus and tropical fruits (latex allergy), stone fruits, melons, squash, strawberries, flax, cruciferous veggies and celery.

Yes, I'm HUNGRY.

Soy suks. No doubt about it. Searchy on "soy rat intestine", "soy infant thyroid", "soy hormone imbalance", "soy end of the world" etc and you'll see. Ok, I made that last one up, don't search on that!

Also don't search on "soy for a wonderful world of light and hope", or "soy for all the girls in string bikinis you want", just depressing stuff...

Joking aside, soy did a lot of nasties to me. Joint pain, syncope, edema, gut pain, that other nasty stuff people on here talk about too. I don't think anyone should eat soy. I put it out on my deck for the birds to eat and they turned up their beaks at it. That's enough to convince me.

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Me three! :angry:

Last week I made the mistake of trying some peanut butter after being off all legumes strictly for quite a while......bad idea. Ruined my whole weekend.

Me four! Then I messed it up even further by trying to add cheese back in.. even worse... of course maybe the PB had already made things bad enough. Oh, and lest we get off track.. I still hate soy.
