Summer may be over, but cucumber still tastes good to me! I’m not a big salad guy, but I do like them in my salads and I pretty much use them in all of my homemade fresh veggie juices.

This meal plan uses cucumbers as the centerpiece and you can lose about a pound a day on it if you stay away from sweets and alcohol (counterproductive on metabolism).

My favorite feature of cucumbers is that they are pretty much all water and super-hydrating. What do cucumbers have to offer beyond being a high water, low-calorie food?

This veggie has antioxidant and antidiabetic properties that are also known for its cleansing power to remove stagnant waste materials and chemical toxins. Actually, cucumbers have a few more benefits to consider…
