Hey guys I don't know how many of you have gone to Indian restaurants and all, but is paneer really bad for you? The lady likes to make it and I love to eat it, but what are the drawbacks?

I have been getting a lil fatter (can post pics if you want) and lately I've been eating more paneer. I have been working out a lot the past few years so maybe it is too much paneer? Should I cut down? But then will I need to add different foods to keep the nutrients I get the same?

Normally I take 2 scoops when she makes matar paneer and by the end I have normally taken 5 scoops. Probably 10 squares of paneer total

I don't recall what paneer tastes like. I sometimes get things that have paneer with tofu. I love tofu in Indian dishes.

Paneer is whole milk that is coagulated with lemon juice, so you'd have to analyze how you feel about whole cows (or buffalo) milk. It's high in animal fat, and cholesterol.

Tofu is lower in fat, lower in calories, cholesterol free and still high in protein.

I sometimes get these frozen dinners from the Asian grocery by Udupi foods. If you find them they are wonderful! They do have an Muttar Tofu.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Yes, paneer is pretty bad for you and Indian dishes are often prepared with a lot of fat (often cream) so they are very calorie rich.....very easy to over-eat them.
