Cucumber + Pineapple Juice: The Powerful Weight Loss Combo
Everybody (and their mama) is literally talking about juicing “this” or blending “that” to the ultimate drink for your body. But we’ve found that keeping it simple is what mother nature intended. So this simple mix of ingredients truly does cleanse your body of toxins and jumpstarts your weight loss like never before.
Cucumbers are made mostly of water. They have very little trace nutrients, mostly concentrated in the peel. According to Pennsylvania State University professor of nutrition Barbara Rolls, foods that are low-density and contain a lot of water make us feel full longer. Hunger is one of the biggest challenges to successful weight loss, so snacking on cucumbers may fill you up while keeping your calorie count down. Six to eight cucumber slices contain only five calories, making them an excellent snack choice as a snack or side dish.
Pineapple contains vitamin A and potassium, as well as an enzyme called papain which aids digestion. It is also high in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are necessary to fight the free radicals associated with some cancers, as well as with some of the less pleasant side effects of normal aging. One cup of pineapple juice contains 132 calories, so portion control is important when you incorporate pineapple juice into your diet plan.
We can significantly improve the function of the entire body and prevent such health problems if we detoxify the colon and cleanse the intestines.
The excess waste and toxic buildup in the colon can cause numerous unpleasant symptoms, so when cleansed, one feels lighter, the digestion is improved, and the appetite is suppressed.
Here’s a recipe that cleans your colon and helps you lose weight:
– 1 celery stalk
– 1 medium-sized cucumber
– 1 glass cut parsley
– 3 pieces fresh pineapple
Thoroughly wash the vegetables, and remove the skin of the pineapple. Mix them all in the blender. Do not add anything else, no salt, no honey, or whatever. Just drink as is.
You should drink the pineapple and vegetable juice within 15 minutes of making it so that it doesn’t…
