A high-soy-protein, low-fat diet causes more weight loss than lifestyle education according to a study from Germany. Weight loss: 19.6 lbs vs 13.6 lbs
After six months, subjects in the high-soy-protein, low-fat diet group, either with or without guided exercise program, lost an average of 19.6 pounds compared to 13.6 pounds for those given lifestyle education.
Fat loss: 19.4 lbs vs 14.5 lbs
Subjects in the high-soy-protein, low-fat diet group also lost more bodyfat than those in guided exercise program. The soy group lost 19.4 pounds of bodyfat compared to 14.5 pounds for the guided exercise group.
Subjects: 90 overweight or obese people
The study included 90 people with an average bodyweight of 198 pounds and average body mass index (BMI) of 31.5.
Conclusion: High-soy-protein, low-fat diet increases weight loss and fat loss while maintaining muscle mass
“Our data suggest that a high-soy-protein and low-fat diet can improve the body composition in overweight and obese people, losing fat but preserving muscle mass,” the paper concludes.
