Natural Healing: Watermelon Nutrition


| January/February 2002


Need something sweet while you’re trying to lose weight? Try watermelon. A two-cup serving of watermelon contains just 80 calories, 2 grams of fiber, and no fat—and because it’s so full of water, the fruit fills you up.

Barbara Levine, M.D., co-director of the human nutrition program at Rockefeller University, says, “Not only is a two-cup serving of watermelon a good source of potassium and an excellent source of vitamins A and C, it also contains high levels of lycopene, a phytochemical linked with reduced risk of cancer. Watermelon makes you feel full, making it the perfect food for anyone who loves the flavor of whole foods while trying to maintain a healthy weight.”
