Default Soy Milk - does it cause weight gain?

Hi there,

I have heard that soy milk contains a lot of estrogen and can cause weight gain. I had originally switched to it because I am no longer able t drink milk. I chalk that up to being menopausal...

I don't drink a lot of it but I have it in my coffee in the morning. However, I've gained about 14 pounds in the past four months and can't seem to shake them!

I am a part-time student and work full time. Luckily, I live on campus and can walk to work and take walks around the campus.

Is there any truth to soy milk's estrogen content and weight gain? If yes, is there anything else I can try?
