Odd Foods that Reduce Weight

These foods are odd in that nobody knows their exact mechanism to reduce weight. Some people promote their diuretic effect to be responsible for weight loss, through eliminating the excess body water.

They involve some vegetables, fruits, herbs, and even protein. Whether it is their negative calorie effect, diuretic, binding fat and preventing their absorption, or detoxification effect that reduces weight, it is not obviously clear but they are found to be accompanied with weight loss.

The good thing about these foods is that, they all natural, they are rich sources of Potassium, and they have a detoxifying effect.

Does Diuretics Have a Slimming Effect?

Medicinally, diuretics are given to patients with hypertension and portal hypertension, to excrete water that is migrated to other oragns (spleen, veins ..etc). Water retention is another indication  of using diuretics, yet the problem of using medicinal diuretics is the loss of Potassium in water, and the need to monitor blood pressure.

If your preferred way to lose weight through diuretics, it is far better if you use diuretic food, it is much safer and very rich with potassium.
