Virtually every type of melon provides health benefits, but watermelon’s extremely high water content (about 92% of a watermelon’s flesh consists of water) means it’s a potent natural diuretic. Like juicing lemon, and cucumber, juicing watermelon can help flush excess salt from your system.
Just make sure you have a restroom handy for a couple of hours after you drink this “super bloat-fighting juice” – the diuretic effects of these fruits and veggies mean you’ll probably be urinating quite a bit.
A “banish belly bloat” juice recipe
1 cucumber, sliced
1 lemon, peeled
2 apples, cored and sliced
Juice all of these ingredients together in your juicer. Drink immediately. If you’d like to add optional green leaf lettuce, this will help too.
