Does The Cucumber Diet Actually Work For Weight Loss? – The Truth

does-the-cucumber-diet-actually-work



ENOUGH REASONS SHOWS THAT THE CUCUMBER DIET ACTUALLY WORKS FINE



Does the cucumber diet actually work? Yes this is an important question that requires an urgent answer because I see no reason you are still in doubt if what you actually read/heard/saw about cucumber diet working for weight loss was correct. Well, we are humans so we tend to believe in the saying ‘’seeing is believe’’ but if I was to rephrase that word, I would rather say ‘’testing/experimenting is believe’’.  Yes because you can’t actually conclude an issue without you making any effort to try it out yourself.

In a situation where you have actually made an attempt to lose your weight using the cucumber diet method but failed. You deserve an accolade for carrying out the experiment yourself; well another question is if you did it the right way. We shall get to know if the cucumber diet actually works or does not. If you are convinced that it works, you are going to know how to do it the right way. All these shall be discussed in the sections below.

  1.           What people are saying about cucumber diet actually working for weight loss on Quora?
  2.           Our say on cucumber diet for weight loss.
  3.           Doing it the right way – how to make cucumber diet actually work for you.
  4.          The cucumber diet benefits.




WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT CUCUMBER DIET ACTUALLY WORKING FOR WEIGHT LOSS ON QUORA?




I can remember very well, that evening my cousin was like ‘’ I am too fat, I have tried all I could to lose weight but it’s like am not getting it right’’. Amazingly, my reply was ‘’ Have you tried the cucumber diet?’’. Actually I was not the fat type though but I recently published a post on the cucumber diet benefits  where it was clearly proven that the cucumber diet actually works for weight loss. I have also come across so many other publications talking about the benefits of mixing cucumber in our diet. So her reply was like ’’ does the cucumber diet actually work?’’, at this point I said I would get back to her. Well we haven’t communicated since then, in case she brings up the issue again I would refer her to this post.


Well, considering the fact that some people are still in doubt about this cucumber diet for weight loss. It quickly occurred to me to visit ‘’quora’’ a website which is designed for people to ask questions relating to certain problem while others provide answers, possible solutions and suggestions. After the research, below is what people are saying concerning cucumber diet for weight loss.

Anne Ferguson answered the question ‘’Are cucumber good for weight loss?’’
His answer goes thus;
Cucumbers are a whole natural food that contribute to the building of whole healthy cells. Cucumbers provide you with fiber, energy, vitamins, and minerals. Cucumbers do not burn the fat cells off of your body; however, they also do not contribute to the production of new fat cells.
Should you eat only cucumbers you will perish from mal nourishment, if you eat cucumbers along with 2 boxes of Oreos every day you will most likely gain weight and perish from mal nourishment.
Food of any sort, good or bad, does not help you lose weight. Food is the ingredient for building healthy cells. Food helps you build weight or mass. The question is always the quality of the weight or mass we are building. Are we making healthy lean liver cells or unnecessary fat cells or even worse cancerous cells?
Every day our cell dies and every day we make new ones. In other words every day we lose weight. If we don't re-build our cells with nutritious foods, we will lose weight to death. Starvation is the failure to build new cells.
Cucumber might, inadvertently help me lose weight, because it provides me with the energy I need to burn off and kill those fat cells. Ultimately cucumber is one of the myriad of whole, natural, nutrient dense foods that contributes to the building of a strong body. Losing weight is something that happens automatically through the natural life cycle of a cell, but you can raise your metabolism (speed at which you kill off cells) by increasing movement’’.
This is Ferdinand Brueggemann’s opinion as he answers the question ‘’ how effective is eating cucumber for weight loss’’. See below;
Cucumber itself doesn’t have any effect on weight loss.
BUT if you eat cucumber (which is extremely low on calories) instead of any high calorie foods, it will help you lose weight a little bit. But it really depends how many cucumbers you are eating per day and how less high calorie foods you are consuming at the same time.

Dr. Pari Lawande provided answer to the question ‘’Does eating cucumber aid weight loss?’’
Her Answer;
Hi,
Yes, cucumber will help you in losing weight as it’s a low calorie food and also has many other benefits. So it’s good if you add it in your diet but alone it will not reduce weight .In fact there is no magic which can reduce weight overnight. Plan proper well balanced healthy diet and workouts and you will be successful in your goal.

Mahmuoh Ismail said that ‘’ The cucumber is good food with 97% water, and every 100 grams of cucumber weighs 13 calories, making it a light alternative and fat free, and you can add it to all meals. The few calories that are characterized by choice are not the only benefit of the option
Other benefits related to weight loss are:
1-Low Calories but much Fiber:
The option does not contain any fat, so the option does not affect the weight; but although it is light and filled with water, the cucumber component reduces appetite and blocks hunger. This is because it is filled with fiber, which helps digestion and make you feel full for a long time, and this makes the choice of elements that cannot be dispensed with if you want to eat less and lose more weight.
2. Improves bowel crossing:
The presence of fiber in the cucumber helps to improve intestinal transit by facilitating repeated bowel movements. This helps prevent constipation and reduces inflammation of the abdomen, which makes you feel bloated after eating
3-diuretic and anti-inflammatory option:
With the option of a large amount of water, the option removes excess fluid in the body, avoiding water retention, and detoxification. This helps the body prepare to eat all the benefits of a healthy diet.
4- Enhancer for the intestines:
The option contributes to ease the movement of the bowel and the elimination of fluids, so it is a perfect option to clean the body and to get rid of toxins, a process that has benefits for everyone, but the most important goal is weight loss. Fiber helps regulate the level of sugar in the blood and the elimination of fat in the body.
All these features make the option a good alternative for weight loss, especially if it is next to a healthy diet and exercise regularly to get better results’’.

Well everything cannot be shown here actually. If you feel like reading more about what people are saying about cucumber diet for weight loss visit www.quora.com and search.

OUR SAY ON CUCUMBER DIET FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Having gone through peoples opinion, I believe at this point you are bound to get confused on what to do concerning applying the cucumber diet method for your weight loss goal. Well don’t get confused, it’s very normal because you could see that it was different people with their opinions. So here are what we have to say concerning this;
         
  •       The cucumber diet together with exercise – The Formula: Well the secret of weight loss is for the rate at which we burn calorie to be higher than the calorie intake rate. You can imagine working out for hours which implies that you’ve burnt a certain amount of calories but then what comes next to your mind is the food to regain your lost energy. This point determines your weight loss goal fate, how? Because in a situation where you eat food which contains higher amount of calories than the one you’ve lost, then you weight lose goal has failed for that moment but when you eat food like the ‘’cucumber diet’’ which contains relatively lower amount of calorie to what you’ve lost during your work out session, therefore you’ve succeeded in your weight loss goal for that moment. I believe doing this continuously combined with more tips that will be discussed today for the next few weeks will yield something positive as soon as possible.

      
  Cucumber reduces constipation: Yes, when one becomes constipated, there is high probability the ones weight increases unnecessary because one is already bloated. At this point or in a situation like this, the most advisable alternative is the cucumber diet. Why? Because cucumber contains fibre and enough water which aids bowel movement in humans body. Therefore eating cucumber regularly reduces the risk of constipation thereby aiding weight lose.
  
       Cucumber aids weight loss through hydration: You already know that increasing the body hydration will lead to weight loss. The cucumber is known to contain over 90 percent of water which makes it capable keeping the body highly hydrated.


Final Point: I believe at this very point you are convinced that the cucumber diet is capable dropping your weight to the beeriest minimum if done right. Below section demonstrates how you can your cucumber diet for it to work for you has it has done for others.
