It is delicious, thirst quenching, nutrient dense, and now it is also labeled as a natural Viagra.  What is this miraculous food?  Abromosia?  Close, it is watermelon.  The delicious deep red fruit has a whole host of nutritious benefits, tastes 1,000 times better than broccoli, and now, according to Texas A & M’s Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center some compounds found in watermelons:

“[perform] the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it.”

Moreover, Dr. Bhimu Patil went on to state that, “it’s [watermelon] a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side-effects”

Sounds like it makes for a great pre-run, pre-workout snack.

Add to these new benefits the long recognized health benefits of watermelons (listed below) and it is probably worth designating the delicious fruit as a totally awesome super food.

1. Fill up that Trash Can. Go to your refrigerator, pantry, and wherever else you hide food, and find EVERY food items that contains any of the following three ingredients:

Trans-fat, white flour (bleached, unbleached, enriched), and high fructose corn syrup.

You may also want to consider ditching foods that contain processed sugar in exchange for more natural sweeteners like evaporated cane juice. [Why is Cane Juice Better?

I mean if you absolutely MUST consume soda drink diet instead of regular, and even then limit yourself to less than one can a day.

2. Shopping. With your pantry cleared out, head on over to the grocery store and stock up. Once again avoid anything with the following ingredients:

Trans-fat, white flour (bleached, unbleached, enriched), and high fructose corn syrup.

Instead of transfat, find foods that contain healthy fats like mono- and poly-unsaturated fats. Instead of white flour, accept nothing less than 100% whole wheat flour. Instead of high fructose corn syrup how about foods containing evaporated cane juice or some other less processed sugar substitute.
