  1. 1All values (kg) are averages ± SEM; n = 9 for placebo, n = 9 for whey, n = 10 for soy.
  2. 2Pre = values are at baseline, prior to exercise and supplementation; post = end of 12 weeks.
  3. 3 Only the P value for the combined pre vs post data is shown, since diet had no significant effect and there was no interaction between diet and time (pre vs post).
