Low in calories, high in fiber, water and air, melons help control appetite by filling you up. Research shows that when water is contained in the food you eat, as opposed to being consumed with it, you fill up more readily, which makes you eat less. Although I generally like to eat most melons alone (or less often, wrapped in prosciutto) I make an exception for this juicy sweet soup!
