Rounding out the top five is that delicious, sweet summertime treat: watermelon. Oh, there’s nothing quite like biting into a slice after a workout and letting all that sweet juice drip in your mouth and all over your face. It’s almost too good to be true that this amazing melon can actually help you burn fat.
But, it’s true.
Watermelon is full of that all-important fat-burning component: water. In one slice alone, there is 92 percent water and 6 percent sugar. This will make you feel fuller faster without all the calories, because even with sugar, one (1 cup) serving of this sweet snack only has 47 calories. Additionally, you will be getting 172 mg of potassium, .6 g dietary fiber, .9 g protein, iron, magnesium, calcium, vitamins A, C and B6.
If that doesn’t make you want to sing and dance along to the Watermelon song the rest of your days, we don’t know what will.
