Has anyone heard of this new "Honey Diet"? Essentially it says to have some honey with hot water in the morning and at night...this will help you lose weight and improve physical performance.
In addition to eating honey, your diet must be clean for the most part. It says "No Potatoes", but I would assume that refers to white potatoes and not sweet potatoes.
I know a common answer will be "This is dumb...another fad...I eat honey anyways...etc." I am curious if anyone has tried this with any success (or failure). Also if anyone has any scientific input on the diet. I mean, I would love to eat some honey before bed...yummmm.

If you take honey with milk every day at morning, definitely you will gain weight, and at the same time if you wanna lose weight daily take honery with hot water, this will definitely give you result. My personal experience.

I have been taking a teaspoon of local unfiltered honey before bed, and I noticed a substantial decrease of my post-nasal drip. *ose ain't everything, and no, honey is not diet coke.

Composition of Honey: http://www.chm.bris.ac.uk/webprojects2001/loveridge/index-page3.html (38% fructose, 31% glucose, 17% water, 7% maltose, 4% starch, 2% sucrose, and about 1% other). If you believe a sugar syrup like honey can make you lose weight, then why stop there? Grab a 2-liter Coke, filled with high-fructose syrup and chug away. By the way, the article provides little info on the "study", it seems more like "Bro Science" than real science to me. Another factor was that the participants had to exercise while on this "diet". It seems that the exercise had a bigger effect on their weight loss than shoving fructose into their livers before going to sleep, but then again we wouldn't ever truly know because the study isn't even a properly controller clinical trial.

Have a teaspoon of honey everyday if it makes you feel good. I use it sparingly in some baked things for my kids and some raw truffles for myself, but otherwise avoid sweeteners. A bit of raw local honey probably has some redeeming qualities allergy wise, although most of my allergies went away with Paleo.
