HONEY, GOOD OR BAD
Hi, I am new here. I live off grid in the beautiful Okanagon Highlands of Washington. Can anyone help me with the pros and cons of HONEY? Thanks, Joe Logger
Hi joelogger1 and welcome to Diabetes India forum!
Are you a type 1 or type 2?
What treatment do you have?
Are you overweight?
Honey is obviously a high source of fast acting carbs, thus definitely likely to cause postprandial blood sugar peaks if you have diabetes.
Honey can be a help when you're running low. Downside is that you are going to have higher numbers for a few hours.
Honey .. best avoided
Stevia is a good option
Hi. How are you ? Seen after a long time ?
Kya bro. How much honey one would take ? One or two tea spoonful. 5 or 10 ml honey is not harmful. I take a small amount with cinnamon powder or else cinnamon powder is difficult to be eaten. Yes. You can take with tea, coffee, milk or sprinkle on salads but i take two teaspoonful and that quantity best taken with honey. Yes. Honey in very small quantity not harmful. Just count it in your carb intake. My all the lab reports are done when i was using honey with cinnamon and homemade orange juice.
I am personally not comfortable with honey as the fructose is metabolised in liver and in had fatty liver.
Also I believe that fruit juices are not good for us as we are stripping the fruit of fibre and taking pure sugary liquid
Was a bit busy with year end and new year budget meetings suramo
Yes. So i used term homemade. I take unfiltered without sugar. My 1 hr pp on sunday was 131 after taking half loaf of millet with brinjal and green pulse pea vegetable. In the morning i had about 100ml homemade unfiltered juice. My liver sounds good 😜😜😜😜😜
I read in a few articles and blogs that we should not be consuming fruit juices but rather the whole fruit
Also I take a few berries than any fruit
Also I get the benefit of apple with raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar where he sugar is anyways converted into acid
For Vitamin C I take 2 lemons a day .. with ACV
You are absolutely right. But i can afford taking orange juice. I take very little breakfast and skip lunch almost. Take afternoon snacks and almost nothing in dinner. I take lots of good fats ghee and evoo with whatever little i take in breakfast and afternoon snack. That keeps me full.
Maybe noone cared to look at the poster's "name", joeLOGGER.
Joe might be physically VERY active and he may need the honey to avoid hypos.
The usual LCHF diet non-sense simply doesn't apply here.
Pardon me Mr nbreight
Better mind your language and avoid words like "LCHF nonsense "
Still have to get back to Suramo about when and when not and under what circumstances LCHF diet is beneficial. Just because some ppl feel they are doing great following LCHF doesn't mean it doesn't have negative (side) effects as well.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOU YOUR INPUT. VERY HELPFUL, JOE
