In brief: Watermelon

Watermelon is a delicious fruit that does not cause water retention, even though it's 91% water. In fact, it may help you get rid of water. It is fat-free and salt-free.
It's full of great lycopene, an antioxidant important in cardiovascular and bone health. Enjoy fresh, red, juicy watermelon -- and maybe even have a seed-spitting contest. :-) http://tinyurl.Com/j865j.
