Today I added melon. There isn’t really much in melon so I’m sure it will be fine.

Day 2
A bit iffy today. I had incomplete stools and pain on the lower LHS but not that bad so I shall continue to have some more melon tomorrow.

Day 3
Well what a shock! This morning – really bad diarrhea and stomach cramps. How strange. I looked up melon on the internet and apparently bitter melon is used as a dietary stimulant. I’m not sure what bitter melon is compared to water melon. Anyway I do remember my friend saying that when they were on a diet they were told to eat melon before a meal as it increases the metabolism.

So maybe it increases gut activity? Anyway it certainly did something to me so no more melon!
