Tofu made of soybean is a Chinese dish with a history of thousands of years. Because tofu is a kind of food with rich nutrition but relatively low calories, it is especially popular among obese people and has always been regarded as a good food for reducing fat and reducing weight.
However, tofu intake is not more beneficial. Too much will do harm to your health. First of all, tofu is rich in protein. If you take too much protein at a time, it will hinder the absorption of iron by the human body, and it will also bow “food protein dyspepsia, abdominal distention, diarrhea and other symptoms.”. In addition, after metabolism, most of the plant protein absorbed into the human body becomes nitrogenous waste, which is finally discharged from the body by the kidney. If you eat too much tofu, it will increase the burden on your kidneys. In particular, tofu is rich in methionine. Methionine can be converted into cysteine by enzyme. Cysteine can damage the endothelial cells of the arterial wall, resulting in the deposition of cholesterol and triglycerides on the arterial wall, which makes the artery harden prematurely. Therefore, although tofu is a good product to lose weight and reduce fat, it should also be taken to a certain degree to avoid damage to health.
