Could you tell me what happens to the body if you eat nothing but tomato soup and muesli?

Here's a better idea: You'll lose weight because your diet is boring. You will become deficient in vitamin b12, and probably iodine, zinc, iron, calcium, vitamins a, c, and d, and probably more. Your protein intake will be marginal. And forgive me -- you'll need to deal with everyone thinking you are crazy. How about eating a sensible diet and spending your spare time doing fitness? You'll make friends & be healthy.

How is the best way to get the most nutrition out of eating tomatoes? Do you get any nutrition from eating raw tomatoes?

Tomatoes: Sure, you can get good nutrition out of eating tomatoes. How you eat them depends on what nutrients you're most seeking. If you want more lycopene, cooked is better than raw. Lycopene is an antioxidant linked with lower risk of cancer and heart attacks. For more vitamin c, raw is better than cooked. Http://tinyurl.
