Watermelon breakdown

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

well I hate to give up fruit because I believe it is healthy and not that much calories but the fructose makes you gain weight... when I don't eat much fruit except for berries I lose more weight... today I could not stand it anymore I got a big watermelon and it is so hot out too.It is only 49 calories a cup.... I had 5 cups . well I will be on a plateau for a little while but I can't not have watermelon at least a few times in the summer.

    I love watermelon and that sounds so good. I am going to get one in September if there is any left LOL. Keep on going and have a great day. Pam

    I have stayed on the berry side but I do understand the melon craving! There are the small versions of watermelon now, about the size of a cantaloupe... maybe you should go for those instead. That way your binge can't get too far out of control.

    Oh, I love melons! all sorts. But the sugars... ahhh. Well, I have to splurge occasionally. I'm very bad about that: I start out being good, but as I prep it to put it in the fridge, somehow the amount keeps getting smaller and smaller... huh

a "proper" melon shouldn't look pretty.
If it's ripened on the vine, there should be a yellowed spot where it sat. Those pretty dark green stripey things don't have the sweetness and richness of the "good" ones. And always "thump" a watermelon! if it doesn't sound hollow, it ain't ripe!

Our melon season is winding to a close here, which means the first picking is already gone. The fields are full now of the ones that weren't ready for the main harvest, and they're getting yellow-y. Locals are picking out small loads to sell at roadside lately, and those are the very best melons! yummmm

Now if I could just find somebody willing to grow honeydews!

    I love a good watermelon, but am really bad at picking a good one.

    Yup, there are worse things to binge on! As long as it doesn't drive you to crave other LESS HEALTHY sugars I'm sure you'll bounce right back.
