The other day someone asked in the comments how many calories and grams of sugar are in a serving of watermelon. Off the top of my head I knew it was about 50 calories per cup, but wasn’t sure about the sugar.
According to Calorie King there are 9.4g of sugar in 1 cup of watermelon:
For reference, 1 cup of apple has 57 calories and 11.3 grams of sugar.
But, what’s more relevant to my situation is –
How many calories are in a Whole Watermelon?
Again thanks to Calorie King, we can estimate there are 1355 calories in one 9 pound watermelon*.

It’s my FAVORITE food in the world and I don’t care if I turn into a watermelon!
The moral of the story is…
Eating a whole watermelon is unnecessary a lot of calories in one go so you should probably leave it to the experts like me and this guy…
A reader sent me this video today. I know I’ve seen it before though… Like when I look in a mirror.
