Vitamin C is necessary to build collagen and keep you skin from sagging. So always be sure to get plenty of it in your diet. It also speeds healing. Watermelon is also rich in lycopene, as are all red, pink, and yellow fruits and vegetables. Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps protect your body against cancer and heart disease. It also helps to reduce LDL or bad cholesterol. The benefits of lycopene are well documented. Watermelon is also full of water, making it perfect for dieters at only 48 calories a cup. Studies show that eating water-saturated fiber-rich foods significantly aids any sensible weight loss plan.
