The Watermelon Diet
Could this be the ultimate diet food?
Ever wondered why obesity is so rare in Asia and Africa? Poverty may not be the only answer. Some have suggested that it's partly because people on these continents eat surprisingly large amounts of watermelon. (Watermelon is native to Africa, by the way.) Besides filling you up with water (a well proven weight-loss strategy), watermelon is so rich in vitamins and minerals that some say it should be stored in your medicine chest. (It won't fit, of course—but that is changing.) Hence, eating watermelon while you're on a low-calorie diet will help you make sure you get enough of certain key nutrients.
What Is the Watermelon Diet?
There is no official Watermelon Diet, but any diet that includes a lot of watermelon will qualify. And any particular watermelon diet will help you lose weight for the same reason any other watermelon diet will: because it replaces part of the volume of your food with water, which contains no calories and yet makes you feel full. (There's a whole new science devoted to this principle; it's called volumetrics.) Works with Any Diet...or No Diet
How much watermelon is "a lot?" That depends on how fast you want to lose weight. The average American diet contains 150 calories per ounce. Replace three ounces with watermelon at 8 calories per ounce and you save about 426 calories a day—enough to lose 3.7 pounds a month or 44 pounds a year. Double that to six ounces and you'll lose weight at twice the speed. (For help with the Watermelon Diet, you might try DietPower's award-winning weight-loss and nutrition software.
