Should leaves be taken off tomato plants?

This is my first summer attempting to grow tomatoes. I have several kinds, planted in several ways.

I read on a how-to site that if the leaves are not pulled off, or cut off tomato plants then all that is really growing well are leaves, few fruits will arrive because too much energy is going put into leaf production, instead of fruit production.

IS THIS TRUE?

Please tell me what all you experts think about this!

Thank you so much!

Audrey
