Is eating too many tomatoes bad for you?

Postby nikolaus » April 24th, 2012, 8:33 pm

I eat tomatoes like apples.. i bite them. I eat about 7 tomatoes like that a day ... i can eat more but that's all we ever have. I guess I'm addicted to them x) I sometimes dip them in ketchup (i drink raw ketchup..) or in Italian dressing.
But is it bad? I don't like any other fruits or veggies so i don't want to mix them.
Whats the side affects?

Tomatoes are very acid and can bother your stomach if you eat too many. An excessive amount of ANYTHING is never really that good for you. As for the ketchup, it is full of sugar and artificial flavors so it is not best to drink raw ketchup...

Seven tomatoes a day won't be too much, but eating zero other fruits and vegetables is not enough.

Tomatoes are good for you, but there are nutrients and beneficial compounds that tomatoes do not have, but other fruits and vegetables will have them.

And go easy on the ketchup. It contains a lot of salt.
