I will answer your question of how many calories in a tomato but first some other interesting facts.The tomato is a fantastic food source of many vitamins. These are vitamin A, C, D and B 12. The tomato actually contains 20% of your RDA (recommended daily allowance.) It is most often eaten in raw form in juices, snacks, salads, sauces, sandwiches or it can even be drank neat. Whichever you will be ingesting a good source of fibre and it contains 0% fat or cholesterol. Absolutely none. As I’m sure we can deduce this is a exceptionally good food for anyone who has chosen to go on a weight loss diet.
How Many Calories In A Tomato Then?
Another reason that it is great for ANY diet is that it is super low in calories coming in at just 18 – 24 p/100 grams. This it going to mean, consuming several tomatoes in one fell swoop would hardly make a dents in your daily calorie allowance. (DCA) In fact compared to many other snack time favourites it contains practically no calories what so ever. In actual reality an entire cupful of cherry tomatoes would only amass a grand total of 27 calories. So you would curb any hunger you are feeling whilst doing minimal damage to your diet.
Tomatoes are a great food in themselves so it would seem to defeat the object of consuming them when they have been dressed up or seasoned or indeed both. So I implore you, If you are going to eat them leave the salad dressing sauces well alone as they will contain a lot of nasties which will over power the goodness (vitamins and minerals) that the tomato naturally provides you.
With the tomato being a great source of the aforementioned vitamins and minerals there just simply put ISN’T ENOUGH ROOM IN THEIR MAKE UP for them to contain anything that will haver a negative impact on your health only positive.
Try The Amazing Taste In The Sweet Tomato
Another amazing fact is that the oh so sweet cherry tomato is one that a lot of people prefer and this comes in too at around 18 calories p/100 grams. So once again the damage done to any diet really is not anything to bring you concern.
Surely the eating of what some people will say are a delicious foods stuff with so many health benefits (help towards the prevention of cancers and strokes) is a complete no brainer. It shouldn’t require a lot of thought. And yet they can still be consumed in such small quantities as to have zero impact on our health, in fact just become totally redundant in our quest to lose weight. I say we should leverage these (use them) to obviously help towards the fight against the possible onset of major diseases
The Not So Humble Tomato
We really should embrace the not so humble tomato and all of the advantages that it quite literally brings to the table. The lack of calories in them surely has to be the one of the unique advantages of this food over the rest of the sugary, salty, fatty, and bad for you preservative filled and empty calorific foods we chooser to otherwise eat. This is especially true of the society of today as people are gradually becoming
Please remain aware that the calories in tomatoes are made up of essential fats, proteins and carbohydrates or else there wouldn’t be any, so that is that.
One of the worst ones containing tomatoes is in fact a table spoon of tomato ketchup as it contains 20 calories., and this is just Heinze organic ketchup. Others are slightly higher.
