When trying to regulate calorie, fat, and carbohydrate intake, it’s easy to neglect the amount of protein that’s taken in. So, it becomes increasingly important to supplement a diet or new eating plan with more protein.
In addition to supplementing your protein consumption, soy has a number of other benefits. Such as, increasing skin elasticity, healthier heart and bones, and some sources claim that it aids in the prevention of cancer and helps to relieve menopausal symptoms.
The easiest way to do this is with is with protein powder. One such brand that’s available online on various websites is Jarrow Iso-Rich Soy. A large jar consisting of 892 grams of soy protein retails for less than $25 and often times can be purchased for much less.

But, if you want to cut the high calories, sugar, fat, and carbohydrates that are found in milk and fruit juice, you can experiment with various sugar free drinks and drink mixes to see which one you like the best.
