How to lose weight with the watermelon diet

Water­mel­ons are the most gen­er­ous gift of nature. They ripen in mid-lat­i­tudes in late August — ear­ly Sep­tem­ber. If desired, you can find berries of impec­ca­ble eco­log­i­cal qual­i­ty, grown with­out the use of nitrates and fer­til­iz­ers, they are heal­ing. Cleans­ing the body dur­ing these price­less days can give a sup­ply of health for the com­ing year and pro­tect against colds for the autumn-win­ter peri­od.

Water­mel­on juice is able to bind and remove tox­ins, heavy met­al salts, and even radionu­clides from the body. First of all, due to diuret­ic and choleretic prop­er­ties, as well as along the con­cen­tra­tion gra­di­ent, when a sub­stance that is in rel­a­tive excess pass­es into a solu­tion with its low­er con­tent. It is believed that in this way it is pos­si­ble to remove excess cal­ci­um from the body, which accu­mu­lates in the wrong place (in the artic­u­lar struc­tures, for exam­ple). Some­times sim­ple philis­tine views do not cor­re­spond to the opin­ion of offi­cial sci­ence, but, nev­er­the­less, folk meth­ods suc­cess­ful­ly help.

Water­mel­on pulp (rather del­i­cate fiber) has a cleans­ing effect on the intesti­nal microvil­li. Indi­vid­ual per­cep­tion of such clean­ing may be accom­pa­nied by unpleas­ant sen­sa­tions: increased gas for­ma­tion in the intestines, bloat­ing, loud rum­bling. In prin­ci­ple, a cou­ple of days of such “musi­cal accom­pa­ni­ment” can be tol­er­at­ed, if only you know for sure that dys­pep­sia is pure­ly func­tion­al in nature, and there are no organ­ic obsta­cles in the intes­tine (polyps, adhe­sions, neo­plasms).

A water­mel­on mono-diet is good, when for 1–3 days a per­son eats only striped berries at a dose of about 1 kg of water­mel­on (includ­ing the cut crust) per 10 kg of body weight. That is, if the patien­t’s weight is 75 kg, then he is allowed to eat pulp extract­ed from water­mel­ons with a total weight of about 7–7.5 kg per day. It (the pulp) is rec­om­mend­ed to be divid­ed into por­tions of 300–400 g, which are con­sumed every 2–3 hours. How­ev­er, the amount of water­mel­on eat­en should be con­trolled accord­ing to your own feel­ings. If unpleas­ant symp­toms appear (each may be dif­fer­ent), then you should stop and wait a lit­tle while tak­ing not only water­mel­ons, but also any oth­er food.

It is nec­es­sary to cut the water­mel­on pulp from the crusts “with a mar­gin” — it is the ripe flesh of the berry that will cleanse the body best of all.
Dur­ing the water­mel­on diet, thirst may appear, which can be quenched with well-set­tled and fil­tered boiled water at room tem­per­a­ture, tak­en in sips. Some­one man­ages to speed up the metab­o­lism against the back­ground of a water­mel­on diet with heat­ed water, but not chilled.
Water­mel­ons are some­times rec­om­mend­ed to be inter­spersed (but not mixed) with low-fat cot­tage cheese or kefir after three to four hours, but this will already be a diet designed for a per­son who can­not tol­er­ate hunger. This feel­ing in some peo­ple can con­tribute to the ces­sa­tion of the most seem­ing­ly non-bur­den­some diets. Here you need to turn on and train willpow­er.

A day or two before the start of a water­mel­on diet (even a short-term, dai­ly one), you should reduce the calo­rie con­tent of every­day food by 20–30%, elim­i­nat­ing fats, espe­cial­ly those of ani­mal ori­gin, the same mea­sures should be tak­en in the first 1–2 days after a water­mel­on cleans­ing of the body. It is very impor­tant to exclude these days foods and dish­es con­tain­ing sug­ar and table salt, preser­v­a­tives. After the water­mel­on diet, it is best to include fer­ment­ed milk prod­ucts in the diet. Then you can add chick­en eggs and fish. If you have the strength to post­pone eat­ing meat for 3–4 days, then this will be a great addi­tion to a com­pre­hen­sive clean­ing.


Water­mel­on diet is con­traindi­cat­ed for ado­les­cents, preg­nant women, peo­ple suf­fer­ing from glomeru­lonephri­tis, urolithi­a­sis, severe dia­betes, heart fail­ure, hyper­ten­sion. The water­mel­on diet can also reveal hid­den forms of many chron­ic dis­eases. If the liq­uid is not excret­ed or is excret­ed in small quan­ti­ties when using water­mel­ons, swelling appears on the face and legs, con­sult a doc­tor for advice and stop the diet.
