I love hadeeths that talk about food and health. I'm very curious about this hadeeth below. Is there anyone that can explain scientifically why dates and cucumber would make you put on weight?

Aishah (R.A.) used to prescribe dates for those suffering with giddiness. It is now well known that low blood sugar and low blood pressure are among the causes of giddiness. She was also reported to have used dates combined with cucumber to treat her over-slim condition. She said "they fed me with every type of food to gain weight, yet I did not put any on. Then they added cucumber and fresh date to my diet and that did it."

well I can understand how anyone could remotely associate dates with weight gain due to the high sugar content but cucumbers?
Cucumbers are great for aiding weight loss.

Not cucumbers and dates, but cucumbers with dates.

This is Arabian food menu.

Is the cucumber mixed with dates ?, or people eat these separately ?.

Frankly, the reference of my post above was from hadith that translated into Indonesia language, and it mentioned "dengan" (with), not "dan" (and).

Not sure, am aware of places in Africa that feed dates and milk to girls that are getting married.
