Is Tofu Good For You? Or Is Tofu Bad For You?

On today’s #TBT episode of Live Lean TV, I’m answering a viewer question on is tofu good for you? Or is tofu bad for you?

Before I share my quick thoughts, this is a post from our #TBT Q&A series.


Every Thursday, we will be uploading one #TBT question to our YouTube channel, from our old #LLTV Q&A series that I filmed in 2012.

Here is today’s viewer question:

I’d love to hear your thoughts on tofu, good or bad, and why?

Here’s what I’m going to tell you about tofu.

Tofu is a highly refined food, meaning you don’t see it growing out of the ground.

This is because tofu is processed in a manufacturing facility.

In other words, tofu is not your best source of protein.

There are many arguments against consuming tofu, especially regarding its estrogenic properties.

This means tofu may throw off your hormonal balance of estrogen to testosterone.

Bottom line on tofu

I don’t like the taste of tofu.

I also prefer to stick to whole foods, and tofu is not a whole food.

So I would say that if you like eating tofu, just try to eat in moderation.

But if you don’t like it or if you haven’t tried it, don’t bother with it.

Stick with real whole foods.
