Delicious, full of antioxidants, AND they help you to lose weight? Tomatoes are definitely among our favourite fat-fighting foods. Tomatoes have been found to reduce inflammation and water retention in the body, as well as reversing leptin resistance. Leptin is a type of protein which helps to regulate metabolic rate and appetite, so our bodies rely on it to shed those extra pounds.
Consuming tomatoes give you real benefits in reducing the risks of cardiovascular disease. Along with other three vital nutrients for your heart health (vitamin B6, potassium and folate), tomatoes also contain niacin and lycopene, a combination proven to lower your bad cholesterol (LDL) levels, which is a known contributor to cardiovascular problems.
