just because you are exercising regularly its not an excuse to eat whatever junk food you want. Look at food as a way to fuel your body & all the vitamins, minerals, & the other natural benefits it gives you. For example, I cant get enough of rasberries during the summer because they are a natural anti-inflammitory. In a nutshell, you really are what you eat!
Watermelon is also considered an alkaline food, meaning it helps to bring the pH level (key to good health) of the body back to its natural level. It’s believed that disease has a much harder time developing in an alkaline environment inside the body, compared to a more acidic one.
Melons ... Antioxidant rich melon fruits may help promote weight loss. Melons are very rich in vitamin C, which studies have shown helps to prevent stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline from peaking. Since stress hormones store more fat, especially in the abdomen, eating foods rich in vitamin C may help to shed unhealthy visceral (belly) fat. And, if you like watermelon, eat up! It may help you reduce your body fat faster, due to the amino acid, arginine.
