Cartenoids in watermelon also help to cure high blood sugar levels, there is lots of fiber & when you get sugar through watermelon, the dietary fiber present in the fruit is absorbed and does not get converted into fat in the body & can aid digetion & loss of belly fat. A good watermelon has no soft spots, sweeter is lighhter in color, round.

If you scratch a watermelon with your fingernail and see a greenish white color this means that the fruit is ripe. Pick one evenly rounded on all sides. A heavy Watermelon is the juicyest.
