Cucumber Water

I’ve been trying out the Abs Diet for the past week (I’ll post my results and reviews about the diet in a later post) and one of the hardest parts of the diet for me is not being able to drink sugary drinks. I love fruit juice, coke, lemonade, etc. I hate water! So as always, I started looking for alternatives and I found out about cucumber water! Sounds like a simple way to spruce up your water. Here are a few recipes. I will try them later this week when I have time to go to the store to pick up some cucumbers:

The Lemon Mint Cucumber sounds so delicious! I’ve been looking for something like this- like you, I’ve given up all the super sugary drinks, like Vitamin Water and juices. Just not worth the calories IMO- but I dislike plain water, so I always feel a little dehydrated. Thanks for the tips, let us know how they turn out!

In my catering parties we would do flavor waters with thinly sliced pineapples and coconut oil, another favorite was a thinly sliced green apples with lemon. We also did mandarin oranges with kumquats and ginger. The possiblities are endless. Also you might think about mineral bubbly water. Sometimes I just crave the bubbles that soda gives, not the sugar. I love Rain Water products. They do not offer it here in the midwest. boo hoo.

hi girlrobot, I’ve stumbled across your site on my never ending search for an “Abs Diet” that actually works. How has your progress been on it so far?

Hi Eddy,
Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately, due to my poor motivation and environmental influences ha ha, i only stayed on the diet for a week. I lost 1 lb though. I will try to put up a real update about it this week though. How did you do on the diet?
