Leaves (and photosynthesis) are the only means plants have to feed themselves. Removing leaves seems very counter-intuitive.

Post a pic. And yes removing leaves, or clipping them in half triggers the plant to grow more. It is about how you do it, and if the plant is big enough yet, to do it. Like daisy said, clipping them is taking away their food production. If it has 2 leaves, and you clip one, you take away HALF of its food production. If it has 4 leaves and you clip one, you take away a quarter of its future food production. And so on...
Some people do it, and some don't. If it's your only tomato plant, why risk it?
