A while back I stumbled upon the honey diet. According to the "inventor" you should take 1-2 tablespoons of honey before going to sleep. It's supposed to help reduce stress hormones, increase fat-burning and help you sleep.
Since your liver is supposed to dish out 10 grams of glucose per hour, taking honey before you go to sleep "fuels" the liver since honey is comprised of glucose and fructose.
If the liver does not have sufficient supply of glucose, adrinal glands release stress hormones which raise heart rate and blood pressure and result in muscle and bone degredation.
There is much more "science" behind the explination as to why this works.
I took 2-3 spoon fulls of honey each night for almost a year (still do). I didn't see any loss of weight but I did sleep much better (thats why I kept doing it).
My question is, with all this science behind it, how come it doesn't work?
