The community knew him as a diet of honey or honey diet. A British author, Mike McInnes, describes the diet of honey in his book entitled The Honey Diet.
McInnes explained, honey diet starts with drinking warm water fed lemon juice and honey as much as 1-2 tablespoons. Honey in the diet will replace the need sugar in their daily activities. In addition, honey also requires a reduction in dietary intake of simple carbohydrates and replace them with complex carbohydrates. simple carbohydrates found in potatoes, wheat, or rice.
Honey diet also requires the consumption of vegetables as much as possible. Consumption of fruit also should not be too much, because the sugar content in the fruit is replaced honey.
Despite this dissenting opinion expressed nutritionists, Rania Batayneh, MPH, who is also the author of The One One One Diet. ” People can call it whatever diet. However for me it is a fad diet, ” he said. This is because honey diets require extreme low carbohydrate intake, which was replaced with honey.
In fact, as much as a tablespoon of honey contains 17 grams of carbohydrates. Strict diet with a pattern like that should not be continued. This is because such a diet will only add to the fat content, after all this time is done.
When dieting, usually reduced weight is a combination of muscle and fat. However, when the body weight back up, it is entirely due to fat. Even so, it is not due to the consumption of honey. Honey is full of antioxidants that help boost the immune system.
Rania said, honey should not be viewed as a substitute for sugar foods. With such a perspective, the diet will continue as usual. However, the daily consumption of sugar replaced honey, which is better for health.
