You want to reduce your weight but you do not want to pay much attention to what are you eating? Then this is the right diet for you. It is based on cucumbers and it will help you get significant results in just a week or ten days at most. Just get a few specific products and consume them, and of course, remain physically active all the time.
The key ingredient to this diet is the cucumber.
This vegetable can be eaten in unlimited quantities in all of your meals, but most importantly, you are allowed to consume it whenever you feel really hungry. Moreover, the cucumber is highly beneficial for your entire body as it triggers the metabolism, purifies the organism, cleanses your intestines, and helps you improve the digestion.
In addition, the cucumber is of great help when it comes to eliminating the excess water out of the body, especially if you consume it on a daily basis. This vegetable is also ideal when it comes to full detoxification, getting rid of acne and cleansing the entire skin on the face.
This is exactly the reason why numerous face masks contain cucumber.
You can begin the cucumber diet by sticking to this meal plan.
Buy a low-fat yogurt that does not contain added sugars and add 200 grams of sliced cucumbers. Mix everything well. If this does not give you a feeling of satiety, you can add two sliced peaches or one apple and eat everything.
For lunch, you should have a great portion of cucumber salad and a slice of dried bread. If you want to eat something with more taste, occasionally try this recipe as well:
- Drinks: coffee, tea, without sugar
- Two potatoes
- 300 grams of fresh fruits
Boil or bake the potatoes, as you like. Consume the potatoes with some slices of whole-wheat bread and a sliced cucumber. For a snack, you can have some fresh fruits and make a fruit salad. You can drink coffee or tea, but use no sugar in them.
YOU CAN ALSO TRY THIS RECIPE:
- 150 grams of tuna or two eggs or 150 grams of white meat
- Three slices of whole-wheat bread or two potatoes
It is up to you to choose between bread or potatoes, but do not eat them both at the same time. Combine your food of choice with some tuna and a sliced cucumber. Also, if you do not like tuna, grill some white meat, but do not use oil, and eat it in combination with some boiled eggs.
For a snack, you can consume cucumber shake between your meals. You can have this shake in unlimited amounts. Here are the ingredients you will need for the preparation of this cucumber shake:
- 20 grams of almonds or walnuts
- A handful of spinach
- A cucumber
- An apple
Put the apple, the cucumber, and the spinach in a blender and blend everything well until you get a homogenous mixture. However, do not peel them previously. When you are done mixing these ingredients, add some ginger and go on blending. Once you achieved the desired consistency, you have prepared your shake and it is ready to be consumed.
You can use some walnuts and almonds as a decoration for your glass. Drink the shake right away, because if you leave it for some time, it may lose its beneficial properties. This shake is very healthy as it is loaded in nutrients, including vitamins and minerals like magnesium, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin E, fiber, etc.
The dinner that is part of this dietary plan does not consist of many different foods. It is only made up of 300 grams of any fruit of your choice. You can prepare a fruit salad or eat your fruit anyway you want.
FOR BEST RESULTS
For achieving the best results in short time (a period of seven days) you will need to concentrate on a more rigorous diet. For example, consume only the yogurt for breakfast with 200 grams of cucumbers and fruits. For lunch, have only a big plate of cucumber salad and a piece of dried bread. For dinner, you should have only a fruit salad.
