How much water is in a watermelon

Everyday question | Do I have to drink less when I eat watermelon?

When summer temperatures climb, many people reach for watermelon to freshen up. But anyone who has already plastered half a kilo knows that you won't want to drink anything afterwards.

But do I really have to drink less water when I eat melon? BILD explains.

"Yes, because watermelon actually consists of 90 percent water," says nutritionist Dr. Brigitte Bäuerlein.

“If you eat one kilogram of this fruit, you are consuming about half a liter of liquid. However, the melon should not replace drinking water, because it also contains sugar, with which we absorb energy.

After all, there are 30 calories in 100 grams of melon. So for one kilo we consume 300 calories - as much as half a bar of chocolate. And it doesn't always have to be melon. The consumption of other types of fruit and vegetables also gives our body water.

My tip: cucumbers. They only contain 16 calories per 100 grams and also no sugar. "
