Swap High Calorie Foods for High Water Content Foods

Cucumbers are 95% water

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.
