The researchers found this diet is more effective at producing weight loss than conventional low- fat diets containing animal products and can lead to a 10% reduction in LDL cholesterol. According to Cope, soy protein preserves lean body mass during weight loss induced by energy restriction, as well as during weight maintenance.
