4 Reasons to Eat Watermelon – Dr. Weil’s Weekend Tip.

I love watermelon, if it’s ripe and good. Watermelon is full of vitamins, gives us added fluid in our diet, is low in calories, and rich in antioxidants.

The way I pick a watermelon is to pick it up and pat it firmly with a cupped hand. The sound tells you it is ripe and ready to eat. If you hit it and there is not much of a sound, it is probably not ready to eat. I am not sure how much watermelon actually ripens once it is picked from the plant.

Once you pick a good one, enjoy! Watermelon has some great health benefits, not to mention it is so refreshing and good in the summer.
