The 5 day tomato diet is ideal for this time in the year and it will certainly help you to eliminate excess weight but also to free your body from piled unwanted toxins.The fast tomato diet will help you loose up to 3,5 kilograms in the mentioned period of time. In this article we will provide the needed guidelines on how to implement this
specific weight loss diet.


For the tomato diet to be effective you need to strictly hold on to the recommended diet plan. The base rule in the given period of 5 days is to take in a higher amount of tomatoes in every meal (fresh, squeezed, cooked...). We recommend fresh tomatoes which are highly rich on vitamin C, because the processed version looses all its healthy attributes, on the other hand, cooked tomatoes have a positive effect on our body and serve as a prevention from free radicals. Recommended are four meals during the day with every meal including a bigger amount of fresh tomatoes, you can include it in the cooked or juiced version also.
If you fall in the category of people who find it hard to loose weight even with doing some other diets in the past, you certainly should try out this diet. Namely, a group of american scientist did a study in which they gathered up two groups of participants.To the first group was given a so called "magical potion" which was a simple cup of tomato juice, and the other group was left without it.The first group had to drink the juice every day. The results have shown that the participants who were in the first group lost several kilograms more by drinking the tomato juice than the pople in group two who were left without it.

This juice contains only 50 calories, therefore it is ideal for loosing weight and is recommended in the tomato diet.
The main trick with this juice is that besides being healthy it successfully stops your hunger. Namely, the tomato juice even in smaller amounts, provides our organism with the needed nutrients, and with that it keeps the hunger at bay and holds us far from the dining table.
In comparison, one half of a bread slice or a bit of cheese holds the same amount of calories but unlike the tomato juice, it doesn't provide you with the needed nutrients and opens up your appetie even more. Just one glass of tomato juice before every meal can lower your daily calorie intake for 136 kcal.


Almost every strict and restrictive diet is dangerous for our health, primarily because of the lack of vitamins and minerals in the nutrition.
Tomato juice not only hastens up our metabolism, it also covers the lacking vitamin C that we need for our body to work normally. Vitamins alone are very important for our organism
because they help with the production of amino acids which take part in the decomposition of fat in our body up to 11% of it. The tomato diet along with the tomato juice will help you melt up to 30% of belly fat.


This juice has an antiseptic and antioxidant effect, it contains a high amount of lycopene antioxidants, which significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and specific types of cancer.
The juice contains many kinds of vitamins like: vitamins A, B2, B6, C, E and K, folate, copper, magnesium, iron and phosphorus.
It is rich on rare microelements- molybdenum, potassium, manganese. Tomato juice is effective when used to detoxicate our organism, because it helps with the digestion of food and it prevents the water retention in our organism, all facts that are important for the healthy maintenance of our organism.
