It is worth making a watermelon detox, which involves eating 1 kg of watermelon for every 10 kg of weight. If we weigh 50 kg, I eat 5 kg of watermelon anyway for 3-4 days. Fortunately, watermelons are not very caloric – 100g is only 30kcal. However, people suffering from diabetes should watch out for it, because its GI is 75.
Apart from a small number of calories, watermelons have several other advantages that hydrate the body very well, because they consist of water in 96%; they reduce wrinkles and restore the skin’s healthy appearance due to their high content of antioxidants; carotenoids – antioxidants responsible for the red colour of watermelons – lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels; potassium accelerates sodium excretion and regulates kidney function; watermelons have a diuretic effect and are helpful in the treatment of bladder inflammation and kidney diseases.
Watermelon Cleansing Diet
For 3-4 days, eat 1kg of watermelon for every 10kg of body, e.g. if you weigh 50kg, eat 5kg of watermelon every day. It is best to eat it both day and night. Meals that can be eaten during ADO are breakfast – 1 or 2 boiled eggs; lunch – baked or steamed fish, possibly chicken breast; dinner – natural yoghurt or buttermilk.
