Awesome that I found this site. I kmew most of the stuff before and i'm a every day honey user for the past eight years definitely.
Here are my basic tips and secrets to all those, who are struggled with weight:
1) Definitely avoid all the proccessed sugars - you'll get all the sugar needs from honey.
2) Avoid white bread, white pasta, proccessed foods, definitely fast foods.
3) Eat naturally stuff that we used to eat daily way before all the fast and proccessed foods. For example: meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, milk, cottage cheese, cheese. The main thing is that you shouldn't overeat anything.
I'm 24 years old, 172 pounds, height 179 cm, a bit muscular body. Those have been my main guidelines to stay fit for four years now. Here's my example daily foods:
8:00 breakfast - 2-3 whole eggs baked or boiled, one tomato and like 10 slices of cucumber. Also one tablespoon of olive oil and peanut butter (raw, no sugar). Why those foods: simply because eggs give you protein, vegetables carbs and olive oil and peanut butter healthy fats. Of course you can add teaspoon of honey also, I prefer to take it on lunch or before bed.
10:00 small healthy snack - one mandarin and two bananas for example. It's important because this snack doesn't let your glucose level too low so you won't gain more fat.
12:00 lunch - skinless chicken for a size of your hand, two handfuls of vegetables and your fist size of brown rice. And I prefer drinking water with lemon or cucumber slices inside. Those are perfect portions protein and carbs for healthy balanced lunch. Here you can see how I don't count calories, but I use my hand to measure the correct quantity.
15:00 small healthy snack - one handful of nuts (raw, without any flavour) and an apple.
17:30 dinner - fist size of sweet potatos, hand size of salmon and two handfuls of different vegetables.
19:00 healthy snack - cottage cheese 200-300 grams with one tablespoon of honey.
And maybe one to two hours before bed one banana. As you can see I prefer drinking water. There are no calories and it's good for your body. Also it's important to exercise. For more info visit FB slace Healthy Life Shortcuts and I would be happy to help out anyone with healthy lifestyle questions.

As a Yo-Yo dieter for 30 years - I'm now at my target weight, have been for 3 years, 8st 9lbs - how you may ask ? Porridge with honey EVERY morning! Used to skip breakfast thinking I'd save calories but now realize the folly of this. Your metabolism needs food to start the process and there is nothing better than Oats and Honey.

Fabulous page. I have just started using honey as a natural supplement, after using sweeteners which gave me all sorts of aches and pains. I am feeling the benefits already, and I have planted wild flowers that are bee friendly all over my garden to give the little creatures something back.

Ruth: Each tablespoon of honey has about 60 calories, but because it is sweeter than regular sugar, a smaller amount is required.
Honey + lemon juice with hot water helps in weight loss.

To lose weight...
1. Reduce the amount of the food you eat; 1st by a fourth, third, then by half;
2. You'd go hungry? Crave for more food? Drink water, honey with water if you will, whenever you feel like wanting to eat before meal time;
3. Exercise regularly. And make sure that you sweat. Sweating is important. Gets the fats & toxins out of your body. 4. Get enough, regular 8-hr sleep.
5. Manage/Handle STRESS properly. Don't forget to smile.
6. Be happy and thankful always. Things could have been bad, or worse..
