I’ve been wanting to lose a bit of weight since I’ve gained maybe 20lbs over the course of quarantine. I did a bit of research and I decided to try a cucumber diet, but I decided to fix it to my liking because only eating cucumbers doesn’t sound like it’d be too fulfilling. I ended up doing a week of the cucumber diet and I figured I’d share with you guys what I ate as well as the weight I loss within doing the cucumber diet. So let’s jump into it!

Within the cucumber diet, the plan was for me to eat cucumbers with every meal as well as to eat cucumbers when I felt liks I wanted a snack or when I wanted some sort of dessert. It’s pretty much supposed to curb my need for junk food. In this diet, I ate breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.


  • 2 scrambled eggs with 1 piece of turkey bacon & half a cucumber
  • Toast with butter & half a cucumber
  • spinach omelette with 2 eggs, cheese, & half a cucumber on the side
  • Nutri-grain bar and half a cucumber
  • cucumber & tomato salad with 1 piece of bacon


  • half a cucumber and sunflower seeds
  • half a cucumber and peach cup or pineapple fruit cup


  • turkey wrap with a tortilla, lettuce, tomato, light mayo, mustard and half a cucumber
  • turkey sandwich with miracle whip and mustard with half a cucumber
  • tuna sandwich with half a cucumber
  • chicken salad and crackers with half a cucumber

Dinner (cucumbers are added with each dinner)

  • Salmon, salad or broccoli, and roasted potatoes
  • rice, broccoli, and grilled chicken
  • ramen noodles, bell peppers, onions, & grilled chicken
  • grilled chicken salad

Salad dressings I used: Raspberry vinegarette, Garlic dresssing, Greek dressing

Drinks I drank: Water & Vernors/Bundaberg Beer

Was sticking with this cucumber diet difficult?

It was when I wanted some cookies or ice cream. I also badly wanted to eat some chips or fries at lunch time, but I decided to stick with half a cucumber instead.

Did I workout during this cucumber diet?

I did my walking workouts which consisted of me walking 40-60 minutes every other day while watching a show on Hulu, Crunchyroll, Netflix, or Tubi.

How much weight did I lose in a week on this cucumber diet?

I lost 4lbs in a week with doing this cucumber diet. Honestly if I kept this diet up and removed the sugary drinks completely along with adding in more cardio, I probably could have lost more weight. Also if I changed some of my food choices, I would have lost more too.

I recommend trying this cucumber diet if you’re interested in losing a bit of weight.
