According to recent research, eating a diet high in foods that contain a lot of water but very few calories can be an effective strategy for jump-starting weight loss. Cucumbers fit the bill perfectly. One cup of it contains just 16 calories but lots of water and fiber.
Cucumber can also boost metabolism and contains a good amount of vitamin C, which helps burn fat at the cellular level. Finally, cucumber is a natural diuretic, so you won’t hold on to excess water weight from all the fluid you’re getting.
