Water Melon: How Much is Too Much?

Water melon is one of the most popular fruits in hot summer especially the one fresh out of the refrigerator. It cools you down and makes a really good-tasting drink.  But, it is not good for everyone. The six types of people listed below should be very careful when it comes to eating water melon.

1. People who are physically weak, easy to feel tired and chilly: these type of people usually   have cold type bodies, water melon is kind of food with a cold character. Therefore, by eating water melon, you are adding more coldness to your already cold body. It slows down the energy circulation in the body.

2. People with unhealthy kidney(s): one of the functions of the kidneys is to drain the unwanted water out of the body. If the kidney is not working properly, the body’s ability to remove the water lowers. Almost 95% of a water melon is water, therefore, too much water melon will possibly cause more severe dropsy or may be even acute heart failure.

3. People with a weak and cold stomach: since water melon has this cold character, eating too much of it will hurt stomach and spleen, causing indigestion, bloating and diarrhea, etc.

4. People at their early stage of cold: when people get cold, they want to supply body with a lot of water. It seems convenient to use water melon to do so due to its large water content. But this is not good because of the coldness of the water melon itself. Especially when you have the symptoms like feeling cold and having no sweat.

5. People with diabetes: The sugar contained in a water melon makes it a bad choice for diabetes patients, especially after a meal.

6. Elderly people: People with older age usually have weaker stomach and more fragile heart and kidneys. The coldness of the water melon will make the condition worse.

This is not to say that above types of people should cut the delicious water melon out of their lives. Moderate amount should be fine or follow your doctor’s advice. Always avoid the icy cold ones. Also, the greenish part near the skin is more nutritious then the melon pulp, bite more into the skin part if you can.
