Raw cucumbers and tomatoes can stimulate weight loss. Make a tomato and cucumber salad. Dice the tomatoes and cucumber, feta cheese & a low-fat salad dressing. Eat a whole plate of this salad before meals. It will reduce your hunger & help you avoid overeating on high-calorie food. Create a healthy sandwich with 2 slices of Bordens Fat Free American cheese & some lettuce with a few slices of tomato & cucumber to a slice of whole-wheat bread.
For my daily salad at work, I put 1/2 the serving amount of my dressing in a baggie with my cut up tomatoes. The juice from the tomatoes adds to the dressing as well as seasoning the tomatoes. I then pour it all on top of the salad and shake it. Covers the salad and saves calories!
