In my experience, overdosing with honey (real honey) will not increase weight. Overdosing with real honey is more likely to reduce the appetite for sweets, quite the reverse of how contrived sweeteners affect us.

It is very uncommon to find a true example of someone who gained significant weight (excess weight)by eating honey.

It is important not to categorise natural honey in with the contrived sweeteners. There is no true basis for comparison.

Almost no one in westernised countries eats honey exclusive of the commercial sweeteners. So until we see evidence of people fattening on honey, what say we quit generalising about it.

Stick with the facts!
