Honey and weight loss – two terms you wouldn’t dream of putting
However, some people believe that honey can play its part in weight loss - but that is not to say that you should go out and eat 10 lbs of honey! The nutritional value of honey is greater than sugar. This means if you're wanting to lose weight, but still need to address that 'sweetness craving' (as part of your controlled diet), then honey is perhaps slightly healthier for you. I have a whole page comparing vitamin, protein content etc, of honey and sugar.
I recommend you take a look at my page honey vs sugar, because I have attempted to compare the two as honestly as possible.
I don't believe in over-hyping things as if I'm performng some kind of marketing campaign! I think we get bombarded with this stuff often enough already! In my view, it's better to take a more balanced approach.
I think it's worth remembering that sugar comes from plants - for me, this makes sugar better than artificial sweeteners.
However, in the meantime, here's some added information for slimmers wondering whether honey can help you lose weight. Oh, and let's not over-complicate things!

Honey and Weight Loss - A Couple of Recipes

So: Honey and Weight Loss - What's the Score?
As part of an overall calorie-controlled diet, and as a replacement for refined sugar, honey can play it’s part in a diet, in small quantities. For example, if you allow yourself a spoon of sugar in your tea as part of your overall diet regime, you could substitute sugar for honey instead.
However, whether or not it really makes a significant difference, I'm not so sure.
One thing is for certain: honey is a high energy food, so it is unlikely to help you lose weight when consumed in excess - quite the opposite, and I can't imagine lots of honey would be very helpful for your teeth either!
As with all things; too much of a good thing....can turn into a bad thing.
