What you need to know about muskmelons

  • Muskmelons are generally low in calorie content. Honeydew melon is no exception. A serving of this fruit, 177 grams, has 64 calories only with almost no fat and zero cholesterol. Plus, the 6% of the daily value of fiber helps you feel full especially if you’re trying to lose weight. One cup of melon balls contains  16 grams of carbohydrate, the equivalent to one serving of fruit. If you have diabetes or are looking to modify your carbs intake it’s probably best to keep your portion to one serving. If you want to slow down how quickly your blood sugars rise, pair your honeydew with protein, such as a handful of nuts, low-fat Greek yogurt, or low-fat cottage cheese.
