Personally I would never suggest eating just fruit for breakfast. Your blood sugar will spike then drop and you are likely to find yourself hungry and craving by midmorning. Also watermelon is considered too high glycemic index for South Beach so isn't recommended at all.

Personally, and this is just my opinion, I'd suggest trying a little then watching how your body reacts. I actually do eat watermelon because although it is high GI it is low glycemic load, that means you actually have to eat quite a bit to get much sugar. I've eaten half a small melon without problems, not something I can do with bananas or even cherries. That said this plan is based on the glycemic index so YMMV (your mileage may vary).
