Format: Paperback
I just finished reading this book which I borrowed from the library. I really expected to be disappointed by the material which is why I didn't want to purchase the book. Now I want my own copy. I'm not a professional but I do have some basic knowledge of nutrition and how the body works. The information in this book just makes so much sense to me. First off, it discribes many symptoms I've been having for some time now to a tea. It's almost like someone was able to put how I feel exactly into words. I'm just starting to make changes to my eating lifestyle. I'm not going to call this a diet because, to me, it sounds like it might turn out to be a very enjoyable eating experience. There's room for so many mouthwatering combinations in this plan. I love seafood, chicken, eggs, fresh veggies, lushious sweet fresh fruit...yum..a papaya with all it's sweet juice and lushious flesh. Oatmeal made with fruit juice, honey, dried raisins and dried cherries. Ingredients like Coconut Oil and honey make for some tasty and healthy new recipes to come up with and try. My first experiment was cooking baby raw carrots in any fruit juice of your choice that doesn't list any added sugars to the ingredients...just juices. When the carrots are still firm to bite into but partially cooked add honey, coconut oil, dried raisins, dried red cherries, 1/2 Tsp of ground ginger, 1 Tsp ground cinnimon, and a cut up raw apple, stir together until honey and oil is disolved and throughly mixed together. Coat the carrots well, put the lid on the pan and let cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Fruit juices will reduce and create a nice sweet glaze that's heavenly. I couldn't get enough..lol. I really expect to feel changes from this nutritional adventure. I think I'll even regain some interest in creative cooking for two again.

Hmmm. If you look at the cost on the book, it is less than US$15 (on the back cover). But the sellers through Amazon want USD 25+? Be realistic guys, purchase from the publisher, they will only charge USD $15 plus another couple dollars for shipping.

The diet does make sense, from a non-dieters perspective. There are scientific reasons why this works. BTW if you are interested the author has a second book The Honey Revolution: Restoring the Health of Future Generations that describes the science more in depth.

I am not a dieter, though I do watch what I eat (no fast food (McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, etc...) no fried food (well very little). I never thought of consciously dieting. I was told about this by a beekeeper friend, and all it costs for this diet is basically a spoonful of honey at night. I sometimes mix it with water. It does not require you to use local honey, though I've been told local honey has it's benefits. You can use store bought honey. Honey has a range of sweetness, so if you find one honey too sweet find another brand. But I do sleep better, I do not know if I'm healthier, only time will tell.

This book was convincing, so much so that I started the protocol immediately, and I stuck with it for over a month. I used 100% raw, organic, local honey. Supposedly, I would start losing weight immediately, sleep better, and awaken refreshed and full of energy from day one. This was not my experience. My weight stayed exactly the same, (even though I went from eating all evening every evening to not eating after 8 ever), and while I did sleep better, I woke every single day exhausted, mentally heavy, and depressed. That feeling was gone the first morning after I quit with the nighttime honey.

This may work for some people, but it was absolutely wrong for me.

I liked the information about honey in the book. It answered many questions about feeling tired all the time. The suggestions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner were too much food for me. Plus it is very hard for me to lose wt. So if I ate that much and those many carbs, I would be big as a house!!! The way the meals are presented are not very clear, I dont know if it is one breakfast or different options ex-breakfast is fruit salad, bran flakes, plus a poached egg??Weird breakfast. On another one there is porridge??, poached egg, 2 rashers?? of grilled bacon w/wholemeal toast plus juices. Cant eat all that.

The only reason why people lose weight following this diet is that it's a low calorie plan, however the part describing how to use and what every kind of honey is good for is interesting, so I'm giving it 3 stars.
