Soy protein helps post-menopausal women

In a postmenopausal study, 33 obese postmenopausal women took 20 grams of soy protein plus 160 mg of soy isoflavones per day or a placebo. The women maintained their normal diet and level of physical activity. After three months, the placebo group had gained 9 percent more abdominal fat while those in the soy protein group had lost 7.5 percent of their abdominal fat.
