Eat tomatoes to lose weight

Yes and yes, I know there are so many different researches that show that a variety of foods can help you lose weight but actually nothing helps. But why not try again and find out if this next product is more helpful? Moreover, it is not harmful, it’s just a tomato that is wholesome in many ways.

Scientists say that eating tomatoes can give a good effect in keeping trim. According to study eating the vegetable leaves you feeling satisfied and suppresses the urge to snack, which is important when someone wants to get thinner.

It is believed that tomatoes are rich in compounds that change levels of appetite hormones, making them an easy – and cheap – way to keep hunger pangs.

The study involved a small group of healthy weight women aged between 18 and 35. They were offered cream cheese sandwiches made with either white bread or bread that had been enriched with carrots or tomatoes. The carrot was believed to provide extra fiber and thus make the carrot-bread lunches the most filling. However, it was the tomato bread which was the most satisfying,

Researcher Dr Julie Lovegrove, of Reading University, said:

They were given the sandwiches in a random order and we recorded how full they said they were.”

The research can’t be very convincing since just a few people have taken part in it but the results were pleasantly surprising:

It was a small study, and we can’t yet say what the crucial tomato ingredient is, but the results were statistically significant.’

Further research is planned to reveal whether eating tomatoes alters levels of appetite-regulating hormones, including ghrelin. It is known that a lower level of ghrelin makes us feel full.

However, we are unaware of which part of the tomato dulls the appetite. It can be lycopene too, the pigment that gives tomatoes their red colour. Lycopene has a host of health benefits, from warding off cancer to boosting fertility. And it is thought to be particularly effective at combating prostate cancer, protecting against the disease and slowing its progress when it does develop. Besides, the compond may also ward off a host of other cancers, including breast, cervical, skin, lung, bladder, and pancreatic.

Tomatoes are very useful as it turns out. They also can help heart health, protect against sunburn and keep the skin looking healthy into old age. They are rich in vitamin C, which aids the healing of wounds and helps the body absorb iron.

So, my dear readers, eat tomatoes every day to achive all those good effects. Hope they are also useful in losing weight.

    Can I live on a cup of Royco soup a day I’m 5 ft and weigh 104 kgs

    Hey, Heather,

    if you want to lose weight you should not limit yourself in food. I mean one cup of soup a day is extreme and won’t do any good. And if you want to incorporate tomatoes to your diet it’s better to go with fresh produce in a salad or a whole wheat sandwich.
