The combination of expelled fluids and fat cells result in immediate weight loss; however, the results are not permanent.” www.livestrong.com While drinking fresh juice is healthy, you do not have to avoid food altogether to lose weight.

Cucumbers also have powerful antioxidants to help remove those toxins and fat cells. Vitamins A, C, and E are also contained in cucumbers that help rejuvenate our body and skin.
