Here is a great write up:
Dr. Jonny Bowden, Ph.D. and clinical nutrition specialist, considers foods such as tomatoes to be "high-volume" foods, ideal for weight loss. Foods that are considered to be high in volume have relatively high amounts of water, air and fiber and a relatively low amount of calories. High-volume foods such as tomatoes satisfy your appetite and keep you full without requiring you to eat large quantities of calories. While tomatoes have modest amounts of dietary fiber -- a large tomato has 2.2 grams of fiber -- they contain large amounts of water. Water consumed from foods stays in your stomach significantly longer than water from beverages and can help you lose weight, according to Penn State University.
