The paleo diet is one where the participants only eat foods that our primitive ancestors would have eaten. For this reason, it’s also sometimes called the caveman diet. The belief is that these sort of foods are the most natural for our bodies to digest and provide us with the most nutritional value.
Knowing which foods are allowed and which foods are discouraged is an important part of any diet. So what about watermelon? Is watermelon allowed on the paleo diet?
Yes, it is! In fact, watermelon is strongly encouraged on the paleo diet!
This is actually true for most fruits, as they are a very “natural” food item and are jam-packed with nutritional value.
