Watermelon - The Ultimate in Weight Loss Foods

Why do I consider watermelon to be the ultimate in weight loss foods? Well, I'm speaking from experience. I remember reading somewhere about the positive health effects from eating watermelon, so I decided to try it. For a solid week, I ate nothing but watermelon for breakfast in the morning. The meals I had for lunch and dinner were pretty typical. What was the result? For that week, I lost 4 pounds without really trying.

Weight Loss Foods - WatermelonWatermelon as a Weight Loss Food 

How did this happen? Well, I did a little bit of research, and this is what I learned. Watermelon has the highest water content of any food out there (something like 92%) and is also high in fiber. This helps improve the digestion of other foods in your body, as well as promotes rapid weight loss. Watermelon is also cholesterol free, and is almost fat free. This is why it is such a fantastic food if you are interested in losing weight.

More Benefits of Watermelon

Watermelon has many other health benefits beyond weight loss. Consider the following:

  • Watermelon has 40% more lycopene by volume than tomatoes. Lycopene helps to reduce swelling in the prostrate, as well as reduces the risk for cancer.
  • High lycopene levels can also increase the sex drive and improve fertility.
  • Watermelon is very high in Vitamin A which helps improve eyesight, including the prevention of macular degeneration and night blindness.
  • Watermelon is also an excellent source of such vitamins and minerals as vitamin C, B6, B1, potassium and magnesium.

Watermelon Strategies

If you want to try eating watermelon for weight loss, try eating nothing but watermelon in the morning. It is important to eat it by itself. If you eat it with other foods, including other fruit, you may develop an unpleasant, gassy feeling. For lunch and dinner, eat lean protein, along with other fruits and vegetables. If you do this, I think you'll be feeling lean and mean in no time.
