Great question and I am so glad you asked. I noticed that too but ignored it since it met the nutrition guidelines and others on the SD use it too. I also noticed it was NOT on the recommended shakes list on page 261 of the book but others use the EAS Advantage shakes (liquid & powder) and they too are NOT on the list so I figured as long as it met the nutritional guidelines, I wouldn't worry plus I like to buy the big 2lb tub (Pure Protein) to save on cash and trips to the store. None of the other brands come in a 2lb tub.
I am losing weight but since you brought it up, I would also like to know as well because I wanted to try Body Fortress Whey Protein since I cannot find EAS or Pure Protein in strawberry. However, Body Fortress says the same thing "not intended for weight reduction." And after conducting more research, Jullian Michaels Whey protein says the same thing. Slim Fast does not have this disclaimer and insists on following a plan like we do already with 3 shakes, 2 entrees! Anything Soy scares me due to estrogen but after conducting more research...
I found this article, Whey Protein Vs. Soy, "Another very popular use of whey protein is when it's incorporated into a person's diet. The reason for this is that a high quality protein has a low fat content, effectively helping people who are trying to maintain or even lose weight. Some studies have even shown that diabetics can benefit from whey protein supplements because they can prevent blood sugar spikes, especially after a high-carbohydrate meal."
I found this article really helpful. Others are out there however this one breaks it down a bit better, I think. I hope this helps :)
I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
