Cucumbers: a diuretic, high in dietary fiber.

Ginger: gives a feeling of fullness, reduces chance of overeating.

Lemon: high in pectin fiber which helps suppress food cravings, cleanse and detoxify.

Mint: an appetite suppressant, stops food cravings.

In a jug put 2 litres of water, then add:

  • finely sliced cucumber – 1 whole small or half a large cucumber
  • about an inch of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 whole lemon finely sliced
  • about 14 leaves (2 whole sprigs) of fresh mint

Leave in the fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours then strain water and drink! It is so refreshing, plain water will never have the same appeal again, I am completely hooked.
