fruit is always good for you. Just don't pig-out on it.

i think watermelon is one of those very low calorie foods. Mostly water.

Watermelon rind is one of the best natural sources for the non-essential amino acid citrulline which promotes increased NO production, reduces lactic acid and ammonia, and increases atp and phosphocreatine recovery. It is found in malate as well, an apple derivitive. The only problem with consumption of watermelon flesh is that most of the carbs it contains are sugars, but the rind contains far less than the rest of the melon.

Eat grapefruit instead.

I think its fine in your diet assuming you dont eat an excessive amount of it, like anything. Its high in water which is great, and sugars which can be ok depending on the amount. Like anything, eat in portions throughout the week.

Eat grapefruit instead.

Why? I could say eat star fruit instead.

What's your point behind it? It's nasty as sin (if you want my personal input).
