Start Eating One Cucumber a Day, See What Happens to Your Body

3. Potential Weight Loss

The humble cucumber actually offers several means of weight loss in conjunction with other lifestyle changes – reducing your intake of added sugars being chief among them. Cucumbers help because they are very low in calories but high in fiber. Eating them helps you feel full and satisfied without a lot of weight-spiking carbohydrates.

If you eat a whole cucumber every day, you will only take in 45 calories (and no fat) but gain a significant amount of protein, vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, potassium, and manganese. But let’s not forget about the water. Studies show that eating a diet packed with high-water foods is associated with a significant reduction in body mass.
