Watermelon is an interesting fruit. They are relatively low in calories for a fruit, with roughly 40-50 calories per one cup serving.

There are between 75 and 100 calories in the average slice of watermelon.

They have a moderate amount of sugar.

To put this in context, grapes have 15 grams of sugar per cup and raspberries have 5 grams of sugar per cup.

Watermelons have a fairly good calorie to nutrient ratio. They are rich in Vitamin A and C (like most fruit) and also contain some B vitamins which are thought to be good for energy.

Watermelons also score well on Dr. Fuhrman's system that factors how many nutrients there are per calorie. Watermelons are rich in a substance called Lycopene, which has been shown to be a powerful antioxidant.

Watermelon is not an unlimited fruit for those following the PEERtrainer Cheat System.
