Including honey in this list of sugars is probably now warranted seeing as far too much of what sits on the market shelf is not honey at all. It is most likely to be fake honey, or maybe it will have a ten to 50 percent honey content.
However, if the honey was produced and packed locally and the producer can be identified, then you have a strong chance of it being real honey.
Real honey does not contribute to the maladies mentioned here. In fact it is an important contributor to the solution of these problems.
Local, raw REAL honey does much the opposite of what the factory derived sweeteners do. Real honey normalises appetite, gives sustainable energy and promotes healing. It has its own way of limiting how much one can eat, by either making you feel ill, if you take too much in one sitting, or even if spread over time, the honey gives stress-free energy, making one want to be up and going, not thinking about food all the time or experiencing constant craving for sweets.
Even if it does mean eating too much honey in the changeover period, in the long run eating honey to satisfy the cravings for sweets will be very rewarding. Health will improve; better mood and lifestyle will follow.
Cheers,
