Tomato is a topic of discussion among many people. Some call it a fruit and the others call it a vegetable. But what we should know is that tomato has got a lot of good in it. The red thing has the ability to burn a lot of fat and loses weight. A group of Japanese researchers found out that tomato has a fat-blasting compound, known as  9-oxo-ODA. Also, the lycopene and beta-carotene in tomatoes help in fat loss. Many types of research have been performed and we come to a conclusion that the people who eat lycopene-rich and beta-carotene abundant diets have thinner waists and lower tummy fat than those who don't eat them.

Apart from that, tomatoes have fewer calories, less fat and are rich in fiber.

An Apple a day will not only keep the doctor away but will also keep the fat and weight away. Among a million benefits, weight loss is our priority right now. Apple is rich in pectin (pectin combines with water and limits the fat absorption by your cells). Apples are rich in fiber too. Therefore, you don't feel hungry for a long time after eating an apple. The thing that has to be kept in mind while eating an apple is that it should be chewed really well. The peel is rich in nutrients so you should eat it too.

You find them on every diet chart and fitness plan. No diet plan is ever complete without nuts. This food unites the vegetarians and the non-vegetarians. You get to taste the Earth if you pick a handful of raw and organic walnuts, almonds, and pecans. Nuts make a crunchy and tasty snack. The high nutrition value of nuts makes them a perfect food for weight loss.

It is not necessary to eat them as a snack. Chop them up and sprinkle them on the main course of starters and you will not only get a new taste but will also increase the nutrition value of your food.
