Watermelon is great nutrition and great for weight loss.  Watermelon is mostly water.  Most of us struggle to consume the recommended amounts of water (yes, all sources of water count).  Watermelon provided vitamins and great amounts of lycopene (more than tomatoes).

According to http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/healthy_food_guide/watermelon:

Watermelon averages 40% more of the cancer-fighter lycopene per serving than tomatoes. Lycopene in watermelon is easily absorbed without cooking, unlike that in tomatoes, and is relatively stable when the fruit is stored and refrigerated. A 1-cup serving of watermelon also provides 10% of the daily value for vitamin A, 12% of the daily value for vitamin C, along with vitamin B6, beta carotene, thiamine and potassium—all for just 46 calories.
