Standing in line at StarBucks yesterday to get my pre-workout, extra-caffeinated beverage (medium red-eye with a bit of cinnamon), I noted the rather unhealthy looking, pale grayish-skinned (most likely vegetarian but not addressing deficiencies), slightly fat but definitely mushy soft woman with hippy tendencies order a “non fat latte with soy”.   I then watched her dump a couple of packs of honey and about 3 grams of sugar into it.  But that’s another story.

I was taken because Starbucks still serves soy and more, that people still drink it.  If you’ve not heard, soy is isn’t just not good for you… it is worse.  Check out the articles below and ask your local coffee spot to start stocking coconut and almond milks.

“The Dangers of Soy”
“Soy is For Dorks”
“Effects of Soy Baby Formula…”

Want more or simply not convinced?  Just Google search Soy and you’ll find plenty of research clearly showing the ill effects of Soy.

    New faces in every class… It’s difficult to keep up with all you new guys/gals. Welcome aboard!

    To all the new comers: if I’ve not told you, I appreciate feedback on what we’re doing well and more on what you think we can do better. Always feel free and welcome to tell me or any staff member how we can improve CFW. We wouldn’t have gotten any where near this far without very direct input and feedback from our first members. As CFW grows, I can only hope you all will help us keep this thing moving in the right direction. Thanks all.

    It’s been a long time since we did the ol’ “One Bar of Death”. Yesterday’s version was modified as a 12 minute AMRAP. In its original form, “One Bar” is 10 rounds for time and one of the most demanding workouts I’ve ever done. Yesterday’s version was no joke though… humbling as it was.

    Great job afternoon/evening crew on the One Bar WOD. Everyone did a SUPER job.

    Welcome to our newbies. We had a big class last night and you guys all did a great job. It was a pleasure meeting you all and I look forward to seeing you guys in classes. 🙂

    The title (more than the excitement of soy-bashing) “Soy is for DORKS” is making me piss myself laughing! This is great stuff. WELCOME NEWBIES! Intro class last night was a good time. Its great seeing new personalities and faces in the classes. I love watching people seeing this stuff for the first time. Im so excited for you all, its going to be an awesome ride 🙂 That workout yesterday almost broke me…after the first round. Please Tony, for the love of baby jesus, don’t ‘one bar of death’ us any time soon. I beg you.
