    Introduction: Obesity is a prevailing concern in today’s world and it needs to be addressed. Obesity causes many issues in our health which may turn to be fatal later on in life. It can affect our heart and cause severe heart conditions which mainly affect women. To solve this problem, we are trying out the method of drinking cucumber mint water. Materials and Methods: The materials used in this study are cucumber, mint, water, bottles, glasses, and spoon. This study was conducted by noting down the heights and weights of 20 people. The body mass index (BMI) was calculated using a BMI calculator. Cucumber and mint were provided to 20 people who are marked under the tag of being “obese,” as per the BMI scale. These 20 people had to infuse the cucumber and mint in the water by leaving cut pieces of 1 cucumber and a handful of mint leaves in 2 L of water. After being left overnight, this water was consumed throughout the next day, instead of drinking tap water. This is done everyday for 30 days. After 30 days, the BMI was calculated for the 20 people who underwent this study. The results and changes were noted. Results: From this study, we can conclude that, of 20 people, 16 people had a positive effect of drinking cucumber mint water regularly. And so, this is an effective method for reducing weight. Conclusion: Cucumber mint water has a positive effect on weight loss.
