But the fact that it improves insulin resistance, and acts as a diuretic, points to a few reasons on how it can help weight loss.
Eggplant water is a natural diuretic, so this means that drinking eggplant water will help reduce bloating in the stomach, and other parts of the body, caused by water retention (owing to eating foods high in salt content).
