Tomato diet

Jack Weather

Tasty, shapely, ripe tomatoes from the bush are a wonderful feast for our palate. On a summer sunny day we can enjoy them in the garden. There are many ways to prepare them and they help us lose weight! You can lose as much as 2 kg in a week! Let's reach for the tomato!


Where did the tomato come from?

Tomatoes originate from South America. Originally, it was cultivated in Mexico by the Aztecs, and it is from them that the name tomatoe comes from. From Italian pomodori, literally speaking golden apples, the French called them the apples of love because they were attributed with aphrodisiac properties.

In the beginning, the tasty tomato fruit was considered poisonous and inedible. Europeans decided to break this myth and taste a red, fresh tomato and then get down to farming. Despite its basic use as a vegetable, the tomato belongs to the Solanacea family of fruits. It is related to potato, pepper and aubergine.

Almost all of us love tomatoes for their delicious, unique taste, wonderful red colour and fleshy texture. Eating tomatoes at least twice a day will make us feel lighter and more relaxed because we will lose weight. Within a week we will lose between 1.5 and 2 kilograms by eating tomatoes. The daily dose is 1000 kcal. Is it not worth eating them more often, since they are an integral part of our food anyway?

The tomato diet is suitable for anyone who likes tomatoes, and is especially recommended for obese people who want to lose weight. It is contraindicated by pregnancy, breastfeeding and kidney disease.
