If you are looking for that extra tool on your road to taking back your temple, pick up a tomato or two. A recent study conducted by some British researchers revealed that if you want to lose weight, just eat lots of tomatoes. The juicy fruit is thought to be rich in compounds that take away hunger pangs and suppress the urge to snack! The pigment lycopene, which gives tomatoes their red color, is believed by researchers to be that magical ingredient that suppresses the appetite!

Don’t worry, if you don’t like tomatoes or if you are allergic to tomatoes, then just eat slower and you’ll stay leaner. Researchers have discovered that eating too fast limits the release of two hormones that bring on the feeling of being full, which can lead to overeating.
