Watermelon is an amazing fruit as it holds a very high water content when compared to other fruits. It can therefore help to keep you hydrated when consumed often. Watermelon is also packed with valuable nutrients including vitamin A and vitamin C. In addition, it contains dietary fibre.

Best of all is that it is low in calories. Consuming foods that have a low calorie density, such as watermelon can help you to feel full. Think about it for a minute. Would you rather eat a healthy, low density food that is a good for you and your weight or an unhealthy, high density food that can make you pile on the calories?

Opt for watermelon and include it in your diet when it is in season. It can be a delicious replacement for biscuits or other snacks and can even be included in salads or smoothies. Have fun in experimenting with the different ways in which you can enjoy this delicious fruit and the weight-loss benefits that it has to offer.
