Another Great Dieting Idea

I have today a weight loss recipe and it's a vegetable juice, but before I give you the recipe I want to give you some facts. This will be Cucumber and Carrot Juice.

The cucumber is a natural diuretic. It is helpful in dissolving kidney stones. It is exceptionally rich in potassium, the "youth mineral," which promotes flexibility in the muscles and give rejuvenation of the skin and facial appearance. Cucumber juice is also a good source of silicon, sulfur, and trace elements, making it a beautifier of the hair and nails. Cucumbers provide about 250 mg of vitamin A per pound. However,it is important to note that you must use the skin because that's where you find the Vitamin A. When you add carrots you are adding 10,000 IU of pro-vitamin A which your body will safely convert o vitamin A.

It's been discovered that Cucumber is good for the following conditions:

Acne, Arthritis, Eczema, Fever, Fluid retention, Hair loss, High Blood Pressure, kidney disorders, Psoriasis, Weight Loss.

Dr. Walker in his book "Diet and Salads": says that one pint a day seems to be the least that will show perceptible results, so try at least 1/2 to 1 gallon.

Take 2 cucumbers and add 2-3 carrots,if you want to use more you can do that, and either blend them or use a juicer which is better because you will have very little pulp and you will have all the vitamin in it.

Stay tunned I will bring more recipes for a healthful diet and I wish you a happy dieting!
