  1. Tomato and broccoli extracts treatment at different doses significantly reduced body weight and adipose tissue index in HFD rats. C = control; HFD = high fat diet; SD = stop diet; T 200 = tomato extract 200 mg/kg; T 400 = tomato 400 mg/kg; B 200 = broccoli 200 mg/kg; B 400 = broccoli 400 mg/kg; CX = Chromax. Results were expressed as mean ± SEM and analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni’s post hoc test. * = Significant from control at P < 0.0001, **= Significant from HFD at P < 0.0001, *** = Significant from SD at P < 0.05. Results were expressed as mean ± SEM and analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni’s post hoc test
