Cucumbers and pineapple juice are the perfect combinations to help you achieve your 2021 weight loss goals.
Everybody (and their mama) is literally talking about juicing “this” or blending “that” to get 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 cleanses your body of toxins and jumpstarts your weight loss like never before.
What You Should Know About Cucumbers and Pineapples
Cucumbers are made mostly of water. They have minimal 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 and some of the less pleasant side effects of normal aging.
One cup of pineapple juice contains 132 calories, so portion control is important when incorporating pineapple juice into your diet plan.
