||Calories from Fat
There are roughly 30 calories in one cup of chopped tomatoes and 30 calories in one large tomato.
A one cup serving has only 4 grams of sugar and a WIDE array of very important nutrients, micronutrients and phytochemicals that promote health and fight hunger.
Tomatoes have been considered a "negative calorie food" and are highly encouraged for those of you following the PEERtrainer Cheat System.
We hear very often that people are tired and want help increasing their energy. A suggestion we make is that you learn how to "scratch your CD" and find ways of disrupting your patterns.
An example we make is to eat a tomato with your lunch, especially if it is something you don't already do.
Health Benefits Of Tomatoes
Like many fruits and vegetables, tomatoes are extremely good for you, and contain a broad array of nutrients.
In particular, tomatoes are very high in lycopene which helps repair cell damage. This has proven to be "protective" against a number of cancers.
How Many Tomatoes A Day Should You Eat?
Additionally there is new research that shows that when you combine tomatoes with power foods like broccoli, the health benefits were amplified. In this case, this food combination was shown to reduce cancer cells in the prostate.
To get these benefits, a man would need to eat roughly two cups of tomato and two cups of broccoli a day.
(For those of you who are hardcore PEERtrainer users, you know that we have been relentless over the years in getting people to eat more vegetables daily, and our new eating plan is built entirely around this concept.)
It is important to note that researchers are just beginning to understand why fruits and vegetables like tomatoes are good for you.
But we have strong evidence that they are. A key to long term weight loss, optimal health and increased energy is a very strong focus on a broad array of vegetables, including tomatoes.
There is an old saying that "you don't need a weatherman to tell you which way the wind blows." Similarly, you don't need a PhD. to tell you that there is a good reason tomatoes and avocados are part of most salads!
Should You Eat Organic Tomatoes?
This is a tough question and the subject of strong debate among nutritionists. Some people, such as Dr. Joel Fuhrman, point to the high nutrient value of tomatoes, and argue strongly that the benefits of the nutrients vastly outweigh the risks.
Others point to the risks of pesticide residue. Pesticide residue is linked to a phenomenon called "bioaccumulation" and will lead to deterioration of ones health.
Our view is that there is no question that the world is toxic and one needs to look for ways to detoxify as part of your daily life.
Focus On What You Can Control
There is a lot you have no control over, but you do have control over your diet. If you consume an array of vegetables, and especially greens on a daily basis, you are going to give your body a lot of fuel to repair the inevitable damage.
If you can eat organic whenever possible, you really want to do this. Pesticides are nasty things. However, this is expensive and you can't go through life worrying about everything.
We are so happy so far that people are finding some "relief" in the new Cheat System.
Since the successful launch of that, we are now in the process adding detail here in the Calorie Wiki about all the entries in that guide.
We are going to keep adding information to these entries and adding questions.
So please, if you have any, put them in the comments section below.
