Q: WHY DOES WATERMELON MAKE YOU BLOATED?

if you're someone who finds drinking water difficult because it's "boring", try blending up some watermelon and sipping on that - it's super hydrating and full of electrolytes. (electrolytes help to protect the brain and the rest of the nervous system from stress.)


A: predigestion is the reason that you may associate eating melon with getting a stomachache. since melon moves so quickly through the digestive tract, it can get held up and start to ferment in the gut if eaten with denser foods, or on the same day that you've eaten a heavy meal.


ultimately, melon is best eaten as the first meal of the day, either on its own or with fresh veggie juice.
