Swap High Calorie Foods for High Water Content Foods

Cucumbers are vegetables with high water content and few calories per serving. Watery vegetables can help you lose weight when they are used to replace higher-calorie foods. Use cucumbers strategically as part of a low-calorie diet plan to reduce hunger and stimulate weight loss.You can use cucumber to add volume to meals without adding a lot of calories.

Cucumbers’ high water content can help you feel full, leading you to consume less food at meals. Cucumber acts as a natural diuretic, making you urinate more often, which reduces bloating and water retention, notes Mayo Clinic nutritionist Katherine Zeratsky.
