Watermelon is a natural source of vitamins C, B, and A which are useful to protect us from diseases and give us energy. It reduces the risk of dehydration, and has a high lycopene content which is known to reduce prostate cancer. Watermelon is also stuffed full of electrolytes and potassium. Calories are negligible as you would be full before you’d come close to consuming enough calories to add weight. A great way to diet and great tasting too!
