Not only is watermelon delicious, but it is full of hydrating juice, colon cleansing fiber and a wonderful nutrient called citrulline. Citrulline helps the body eliminate toxic ammonia, block the production of fat and more. Though your body makes its own citrulline, giving it a bit more from watermelon can be just wonderful!
Watermelon has only 46 calories per cup. This means that you can eat half of a medium watermelon and not get too many more calories than found in a candy bar!
But can you get a watermelon that is as sweet as a candy bar? Yes you can. Place your ear next to the watermelon and knock on it with the knuckles of your fist. Knock right by your ear. Listen for a deep sound. The deeper the better. If you aren’t sure, then buy the deepest sounding one you can find. See if it is sweet. If it is, then you got it right first try. If it isn’t then learn to find the deeper sounding ones.
Once you master this technique, you will get sweeter and sweeter watermelons. mmmm…mmmm….yummy!
