Having just finished off half a watermelon, I'd say its delicious and healthy! Yeah, high GI, but eating fruits with higher fructose contents has been shown to be metabolically beneficial up to a point. If you're worried about GI of fruits, you can also eat them with vegetables, fats, or proteins to slow digestion. But I wouldn't worry all that much

 

Unless you're sensitive to it or have fructose malabsorbtion

It's a source of lycopene that doesn't require cooking. Lycopene is anti androgen. It's mostly water. And it's magic on a hot day.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

When you eat stuff, Stuff Happens!

honestly i dnt care much abt gi of fruits.

i have papaya...its great great great for skin in general.almost everyday.

its sweet and of high GI.

 

what i was concerned abt is whether its bad for acne in any other way.i guess not.

thanks a lot.=)

its the ultimate summer snack in india along with mango.

as for lycopene, "Raw vegetables reduce the incidence of acne in teens, but cooked carrots and stewed tomatoes can cause breakouts in teenage males."

- is this for lycopene?
