thanks for explaining PB garrett. does that mean that all beans (or legumes??) are also hard for the body to digest and if eaten in big amounts would make us feel like crap?

That would be correct.

The only bean that makes a semi-regular appearance in my diet is fermented soybeans (the fermentation process destroys the isoflavones/antinutrients and pre-digests them): miso, wheat-free tamari, tempeh, and (very rarely) natto.

Well, okay, I'll admit I ate some edamame at the AYCE sushi place last week, when they took way too long to get the order out...

I thought soy contained estrogen-mimicking hormones that promote hormonal imbalance in the body. That's what Ori Hofmekler says anyway, and I've read up on many Weston Price articles that unfermented soy is really bad.

Maybe you should check up on the soy and maybe even limit your consumption of it, because even the Japanese don't make it a main staple of their diet. I would think eating it does more harm than good too.

Heidi,
You're absolutely right about unfermented soy. I eat only fermented soy, except on a very rare occasion.

Regular soy and soy products are likely not good for anyone, however, there are many positive studies on fermented soy products (and no one even bothers an argument in that area that I've seen).
