How Cucumber Helps In Weight Loss

The simple rule of weight loss is creating a calorie deficit by consuming fewer calories than what you are burning.

Foods like cucumber are low in calories and thus help you create a calorie deficit.

A cup of sliced cucumber has only 14 calories, which makes up for less than 1 percent of the daily calories allowed on a weight loss diet.

A medium-sized cucumber has only 24 calories, which makes it a very low-density food.

Making such foods part of your diet is beneficial for weight loss because they fill you up with less number of calories.

Eating cucumber for salads will keep you fuller for longer and thus stop you from binge eating later.

You can try a mixture of tomatoes, cucumber, radish, carrot with some onion juice and salt to prepare a delicious salad.

You can also try making a cucumber salad with spinach leaves and bell pepper.

To make a refreshing and filling cucumber drink, slice the cucumber, add mint leaves, basil leaves and some lemon and give it a nice blend.

Cucumber has 95 per cent of water. So, do not consume water right after consuming cucumber.
