Cucumbers + Lemon Juice = Fat Burn?


Cucumber contains a high sulphur and silcon content. These minerals work to stimulate the kidneys to wash out uric acid, which is a waste product. With this uric acid being washed out, it stimulates the removal of fat, and loosens the fat from the cells.


Lemons have high levels of citric acid, citric acid is an important component of the Citric Acid Cycle, during which citric acid is involved in the breakdown of fats--as well as carbohydrates and proteins--into carbon dioxide and water.

While a balanced, low-calorie diet is the best way to lose weight, certain food pairings can supercharge your metabolism and may help you burn fat. Lemon juice and cucumbers is one such combination -- and there are other food combos that can also act as fat burners. Different foods stimulate the body's fat-burning mechanisms in different ways, so combining the right foods can elevate fat burning.

Lemon Juice & Cucumbers

Cucumbers are high in sulphur and silicon, two trace minerals that may help the body burn fat. And because cucumbers are high in water, they prevent bloating by acting as diuretics. It may sound counter-intuitive, but foods with high water content prevent water retention and bloating that can make it appear that you have a big belly. Adding a squeeze of lemon juice to a cucumber salad or plate of sliced cucumbers can stoke your body's fat-burning furnace. Lemons are purported to increase metabolism, which generates heat in the body. As your body heats up, calories and fat dissolve. Plus, lemons are highly acidic. Acidic foods may aid fat breakdown.

I actually have been on a diet given to me by a professional nutritionist and 4 times a week in between meals I have to a green apple and eat drink cucumber juice mixed with either grapefruit/pineapple or lemon juice. I do it with grapefruit juice or lemon juice and i have to say that after 2 weeks I've already lost 12lbs. :)
