For weight loss, you can drink just a fresh cucumber juice at night before sleeping. Or you can mix ½ cup of water with 1 cup of sliced cucumber to make 1 cup of serving cucumber juice. Drink this serving amount daily once.
Anyway, let’s see how cucumber juice helps to lose weight safely.
Eat Cucumber as Vegetables
The US Department of Agriculture says that a person needs 2-3 cups of fresh vegetable a day. You can eat fresh cucumber or its juice instead of canned or processed vegetables. Canned vegetables sometimes contain artificial elements, like salt.
You are healthy means you have a balanced weight. You can easily keep your weight lower by taking cucumber juice that also will fulfill your daily vegetable requirements.
Daily Serving of Cucumber Juice
You can just drink cucumber juice or mix other juices with it, like lemon, ginger, beetroot or carrot. Beetroot and carrot add a sweetener to the juice. But, lemon and ginger increase the weight loss power more.
You can add some chili powder with cucumber juice to get it spicy, yet the juice is refreshing, hydrating, and lower calories.
Drink one glass of cucumber juice daily at night before sleeping. It will work to cut the belly fat while you will be sleeping.
Cucumber Juice Mainly Contains Water
Water is the main part of the cucumber. One cup of water in the normal room temperature is just 236 grams of water but one cup of crushed cucumber is just 99 grams of water. And one cup of just cucumber juice contains 217 grams of water.
It proves that water is the main element of cucumber that plays a key role in losing weight as per a study in “Obesity” in 2010.
It also says that the persons who take more water can lose the extra 2 kilograms weight than those who do not.
Anyway, a balanced hydration equals to a balanced life.
The MedicinePlus suggests that a person should take 6-8 cups of fluids daily that can be just fresh water or juices, like cucumber, beetroot, carrot or other fruit juices. But, sweet juice may not be helpful for weight loss.
Cucumber Juice Contains Lower Calorie
Either you have to burn the calories in your body or you have to take lower calories. One cup cucumber juice is rich in 16 calories while one pound of body weight equals to 3500 calories.
That means if you want to lose just one pound weight, you have to lose 3500 calories. You can do it either by burning calories or taking low-calorie foods.
So, if you want to lose your weight naturally, you should drink low-calorie cucumber juice instead of higher calorie juices, like lemon-lime soda. Just a 12-ounce of soda juice contains 151 calories.
Drinking one glass of cucumber juice once a week can lose your weight by 2 pounds a year.
You can either drink fresh cucumber juice or mix it with other ingredients.
