Wink Are Tomatoes Good for Weight Loss by MWLD

Should You Include Tomatoes
in Your Diet?

Loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, tomatoes are some of the most popular foods in the world. They're juicy, sweet, and full of flavor, so you can use them in soups, stews, casseroles, salads, and pasta dishes. One medium tomato has only 16 calories, but offers plenty of fibre, vitamin C, and potassium.

Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin K, chromium, niacin, iron and other essential nutrients. One piece contains as much fibre as a slice of whole wheat bread. Due to their low calorie content, tomatoes can fit into any diet.

Lycopene, a key antioxidant in tomatoes, slows the aging process and fights free radical damage. It also helps prevent cancer and protects your skin against sun damage. Not to mention the high content of calcium in these healthful foods!
