What are your thoughts on Chinese food? Do you feel that it's healthy or unhealthy?

Do you find there is a lot of fat in the Chinese that you eat? Do you feel that it's full of calories?

I would love to know your thoughts on this.

I think that it depends on what type of Chinese food you order. Many dishes such as fried rice, egg rolls, and anything with fried meats are going to be loaded with fat and calories. If you stick to dishes with fresh vegetables, seafood and chicken, they are much healthier.

I have to agree with chloe - depends on what and where you eat. There is an all you can eat Chinese buffet that I go to once in blue moon and it all fried appetizers - you feel so greasy after eating.

But every once in awhile we will head into Chinatown (Boston) and have some really good fresh and healthy Chinese dishes. Lots of fish and veggies. Yummy!

The heathier dishes like stir fry, veggies and the soups are better than the fried rice, the breaded sweet and sour dishes, etc.

50/50 healthy to unhealthy. It all depends on what you get.

Depends on how you make it. Unfortunately, most stuff you get from the Chinese restaurants are not healthy. It can be overly salty, full of fat and MSG.

I dont think you can make a blanket statement whether Chinese food is healthy or not. Like most cuisines, there are items that are unhealthy, and there are other items that are quite healthy. For example, most stir frys have a healthy helping of veggies, a small quantity of meat with can be chicken white meat, and you can do this with brown rice. Thats about as healthy as you can get!

What about foods like Moo Goo Gai Pan and Chicken or beef with broccoli, or even Won-ton soup?
Those are my absolute favorites. They have a lot of veggies.
