WATERMELON: I gorge myself.

MOTHMOTH Raw Newbie

I eat this stuff until my poop is bright red, quite shocking the first time you see it. Anyway, I just seem to have developed a fixation with watermelon. I’m pretty much inhaling it right now. I have a full melon every day, pretty much. Is there such thing as too much watermelon? I seriously stuff myself with it, and it works out, because it digests quickly and then I can eat more of it.

Also: conventional seedless watermelon? I have this feeling there should be seeds…and it’s so much sweeter then organic watermelon I sometimes am able to get. It makes me suspicious that it’s GM…

Any thoughts, on anything I just wrote? I’m totally stuffed right now with the pink luscious flesh of the watermelon…

    i LOVE watermelon. i get this awful pain in my chest when i eat too much of it though… i think it eat it too fast. =)

    yeah, i’m not sure about seedless. i’d get organic to be safe. and it’s only $1 more expensive in my stores, so why not?

    Yah, I definitely prefer organic, but my WF doesn’t have organic watermelons except in the personal sized versions, which are teeny-tiny! Doesn’t satisfy my watermelon appetite, although I do buy several at a time. I feel a little weird eating non-organic food lately so maybe this will be the thing which will help me cut back a bit. Not that I want to; but I’m starting to feel like I’m overdoing a good thing and I can’t have that; especially with watermelon. :-)

  • I can’t believe I found others that eat as much watermelon as I do! I never stop it seems. I go through 3-5 watermelons a week, but I also eat pineapple, though not as often. I’m pretty positive seedless watermelon are GMOs, but that’s all I can find…:( I am going to research and see if watermelon have an addicting chemical in them or something. I’ve slowed down a bit since my stomach stretched so much and it takes more to fill it up.

    Eat Up!

  • I love watermelon so much! I cube it and put it in the blender so I can drink it. I’m addicted. I shop the local farmers market and cannot find anything other than seedless…and they are huge!

    I can’t stand seedless watermelon! It tastes so fake! I love the real stuff though! I can just eat it and eat it! It sometimes makes my stomach hurt though, I wonder why?

    i ate a whole lot the other day and had a bit of a bellyache. then I got a mealy one the other day. I juiced the whole thing because it was not the right texture to eat. delicious!

  • MOTHMOTH Raw Newbie

    I officially can’t eat it anymore. I ate wayyy too much, and now I’m sick. The thought of it makes me want to regurgitate. Oy.

    It’s freaking delicious. And I abused it. Hm.

    moth i’m so glad you said that! when this happened to me i freaked out, red in the porcelain throne oh no!

    I don’t know about conventional watermelon… i get organic always. I eat 3-6 watermelons a week. I’m so glad they’re in season. I drink it as well, vegfean!

  • bittbitt Raw Newbie

    Moth, don’t worry you will crave it again when you need it. :-)

  • southernloversouthernlover Raw Newbie

    You’re lucky…I freaking love watermelon, but as of the past 3 weeks, every single one I buy it disgusting. (I think from being in the heat) Anyway, it’s okay to eat it. I would eat like 2/3 of a massive watermelon at once, wait 15 minutes, then eat the rest, lol. Delish! Oh, and someone said something about chest pain…it’s gas, and yes, from eating too fast.

    Every time I eat watermelon I end up eating a bit too much and get a horrible stomach ache. One time I made watermelon juice, can’t remember howmuch, I think I had about a quart (on an empty stomach) and I ended up throwing it all up! Just don’t have the stomach for watermelon for some reason…

  • The great benefits of eating lots of watermelon is that it helps to flush the kidneys!

  • elizabethhelizabethh Raw Newbie

    ahahha i’m glad i found this post, i can easily eat a whole melon in one sitting.mmm melon.

  • its hard for me simply because i have to lug 2 kids to the union sq whole foods, and I can’t really carry them back :( I would love to eat more.

  • pianissimapianissima Raw Newbie

    nycgrrl—haha i feel ya. how is your csa going? maybe they’ll drop one off.

    southernlover—thanks. that makes sense. i noticed if i ate it slower (and with breaks) it didn’t happen. i didn’t know why though.

    Hurray for watermelon! I was afraid I was eating too much but now I take comfort in knowing there are other addicts out there like myself. XD
