    Interesting, I must admit I love a bowl of home made tomato soup.

    That's really interesting. Cheers Jim

    Did you know that to release more lycopene, you are better having tinned tomatoes, and cook them in oil? Better than raw from a lycopene viewpoint :clap:

    I didn't KD, but my happy coincidence I use chopped tinned plum tomato's for my soup. :D

    I read this - I'm glad tinned tomatoes are just as good if not better - I don't know what I would do without them - although before my dieting days it was probably the pasta underneath and the cheese on top that did the damage !!!

    Tomatoes are one of my favourite foods and I eat them every day, so this is good news for me. The problem is, my weight problem had nothing to do with hunger, so feeling full wouldn't have helped if you know what I mean, that didn't stop the emotional eating.

    Im not that keen on the good old tomato.

    Not too bad when cooked but vile if not. :(

    Have you noticed that they always test these sorts of things on people of normal weight and then declare something to be the answer to obesity. I wish they'd test stuff on fat people who may well react totally differently.

    I'm practically vegan when I eat normally and have tomatos in most of my meals and it's never stopped me being fat yet!
