Whenever I go on health kicks, I make a conscious decision to put honey in my tea instead of sugar.
It's natural, it's sweet and it's healthy. Honey is a miracle!
For the study, researchers asked 55 participants to ingest a dose of honey, sugar or high fructose corn syrup for two weeks.
While participants' weight remained about the same, their triglyceride levels rose with all three sweet options.
In other words, a spoonful of honey is probably just as bad for you as a spoonful of white sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
While this is a small study and more research needs to be conducted before I throw my jar of honey in the garbage, it's always good to be suspicious of any form of sugar.
Yep, this is definitely a bummer. Excuse me while I go cry into my container of greek yogurt sans honey.
