Honey can be very useful when you're trying to lose weight. Weight loss is one of
benefits of honey! If you’re overweight, honey not only helps you
reduce weight but also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disorders.
Alright, hold on for us, in light of the fact that we couldn't trust it when we
heard it either. Be that as it may, as indicated by new research, you could drop
as much as a dress size in 3 weeks just by eating a spoonful of honey before bed each night!
By what means can something that is sweet and sugary help towards getting in shape,
we hear you cry? Won't the calories in honey counter your efforts towards weight
loss? Indeed, as per author and nutritionist Mike McInnes, it's all down to the
metabolic force of honey. He's found that honey triggers changes to the digestion
system that guarantees you won't succumb to those troublesome sugar yearnings we
all fall foul of and it even blazes fat while you rest!
Sounds pipe dream, isn't that right?
The Honey Diet - what you have to know
Disregard starving yourself and costly wellbeing nourishments - take after these
straightforward principles and you could lose a few kgs in a week! Why not stick
them on your refrigerator to offer you some assistance with remembering?
Supplant sugar with honey
Cut out all sugar, including sweeteners, by using honey as an alternative. Start
your day with honey in hot water, replace sugar with honey in tea and coffee, on
cereal, and in all your cooking throughout the day.
How will this help, we hear you ask? Let us help you understand better. Normal table
sugar which is present in all of our houses contains calories which benefit you
in absolutely no way. These calories, which give you very little or no nutrition
are known as "empty calories". Your body uses up essential nutrients just to dissolve
this unnecessary fat. Because most of our important nutrients and vitamins get used
up here, we tend to gain weight while ingesting either pure sugar or sugar in other
forms. This is exactly why honey, being a good source of nutrients, when substituted
for sugar helps in reducing weight.
Pick unrefined carbs
The refined white flour found in white pasta and white rice can cause blood sugar
spikes. Whole meal bread, pasta and brown rice are fiber-rich, so they are good
for your digestion, take longer for your body to process and keep you feeling fuller
for longer. Make sure that the whole meal carbs make up less than a quarter of your
meal, and fill your plate with protein and vegetables.
Protein, protein, protein
By making sure you have protein in every meal, you will feel fuller for longer and
avoid blood sugar spikes leading to cravings. Try to keep protein as lean as possible
to keep the calories down, such as fish (not breaded or battered), chicken (no skin),
pork (fat trimmed), beef (steak or 5% fat mince) or eggs.
Follow the Hibernation Diet
The hibernation diet is basically a diet that teaches us how we can lose weight
while sleeping. Sounds too good to be true? In this diet, all you need to do is
have a spoonful of honey before hitting the bed at night. This technique makes use
of our biology. The honey fuels our liver which in turn speeds up the fat burning
metabolism. Just like the name of this diet suggests, you can lose weight while
Honey has also been known to improve the functioning of the digestive system. Eating
a spoon or two of honey after dinner works wonders. Especially when you’ve had a
large meal, having a spoon of honey helps in reducing the static weight accumulated
in your digestive system.
Different ways to consume honey for weight loss:
Honey and warm water
Drinking water with honey can help you lose weight. Honey being a natural sugar,
not only provides a healthy source of calories but also helps keep your sugar cravings
at bay. Drinking honey and lemon water doesn’t guarantee overnight weight loss but
it definitely helps the cause over a period of time.
Honey and lemon juice
It is commonly believed that drinking honey and lemon water on an empty stomach
in the morning speeds up weight loss. The combination of drinking warm water with
honey and a few drops of lemon juice is a very important part of many weight loss
programs. Both honey and lemon have their own individual health benefits, when combined
together they not only help in weight loss but also cleanse your system of unnecessary

We know this recipe sounds a bit bizarre but when honey and cinnamon are combined,
they help you lose weight by reducing sweet cravings. Cinnamon has been known to
stabilize the sugar levels in our blood. This prevents unnecessary storage of fat.
Combine this with the benefits of honey and this recipe will have a positive impact
on your goal of weight loss.
While using honey for weight loss:
Do not mix honey in boiling water
Do not cook honey at high temperatures
Doing any of the above mentioned acts will result in loss of nutrients because of
the improper heat applied to honey.
While following any diet, drill one thing in your mind: Not eating will not help
you lose weight. Eating right will!
A diet doesn’t always mean you have to starve yourself. Not eating enough food will
definitely weaken your immune system as tonnes of calories, minerals and fiber will
get accumulated in your system with no juice to burn it. Not eating when on a diet
will only take you farther away from your goal of losing weight.
The diet we suggest, the honey diet - as we like to call it, focuses on reducing
your intake of calories. This diet coupled with a few fat burning exercises practiced
regularly, will help you eliminate more calories and hence prove useful towards
