    Q. Can you please tell me if tomatoes will cause an increase in blood sugar levels?  I know they are a fruit and have some carbs in them but are they bad for me?

    A. The American Diabetes Association actually lists tomatoes as a vegetable.  Per their Exchange Lists for Meal Planning booklet, 1 cup raw tomato contains 5 grams carbohydrate and 25 calories.

    A side note, tomatoes also contain a phytochemical called lycopene.  Lycopene may help to reduce the risk of prostate cancer and heart disease.
