Add 200g of sliced cucumbers to a low-fat yogurt, and eat the meal. If you are still hungry, you can have 2 peaches or one apple.
The lunch consists of a large plate of cucumber salad and a slice of toasted wheat bread. From time to time, you can boil or bake 2 potatoes, and replace the bread.
For lunch for the next days, you can also pick some of the following: two potatoes or 3 slices of toasted whole wheat bread, with 150 g of tuna, or 2 eggs and 150 g white meat.
You can have some fresh fruits or a fruit salad for a snack. The following shake is a good option as well:
- 1 cucumber
- 20 g of almonds and walnuts
- 1 apple
- A handful of spinach
This shake is a rich source of iron, calcium, fiber, magnesium, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Vitamin E, etc. Blend the unpeeled cucumber, apple, and spinach in the blender, and then add the ginger. Blend again, and the delicious and healthy shake is ready. Decorate with almonds and consume it right away.
Prepare a fruit salad from 300g of any fruit.
For best results, you need to follow a more rigorous diet, which allows yogurt with 200 g cucumbers and fruit for breakfast, a large plate of cucumber salad with a piece of toasted wheat bread for lunch, and a fruit salad in the evening.
Despite water, you can drink tea, or unsweetened coffee.

These are some of the best exercises which will help you transform your body and get in shape fast!
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a fantastic way to burn a lot of calories in no time.
You should get any piece of cardio equipment (elliptical, jump rope, treadmill, bike, etc) and follow this pattern for 10 minutes:
-3 minutes at 50 percent of your maximum effort
-20 seconds at 75 percent of your maximum effort
-10 seconds at your absolute maximum effort.
You should lie on the side, with the knees straight, and prop the upper body up on the elbow and forearm. Then, lift the hips until the body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders, and hold for half a minute. Then, switch sides.
Plank with Arm Raise
Start in a pushup position, bend the elbows and rest the weight on the forearm. The body should be aligned from the shoulders to your ankles.
Then, brace the core and keep the hip placement while raising your right arm straight out in front of you. Draw the shoulder blades down and back while elevating the arms. Hold for 5-10 seconds and switch arms.
Get a pair of dumbbells and stand on the left foot, elevate the right foot behind you and bend your knee to make the right lower leg parallel to the floor. Then, bend forward at the hips, and slowly lower your body. Make a short pause, and return to the starting position.
You should start lying faceup on the floor, with the knees bent, and the feet flat on the floor. Lift the hips to create a straight line from the shoulders to your knees. Hold a bit, and then lower the body to return to the initial position.
You should stand in front of a bench or step and put the left foot firmly on the step. Then, press the left foot into the step and push the body up until the left leg is straight. Just, lower the body back down until the right foot touches the floor and repeat.
You should get down on all fours and put the hands on the floor, in line with the shoulders. The feet should be close together. Then, lower the body until the chest nearly touches the floor and then push yourself back to the initial position.
