    Hi IL's, :)

    Some say its good to have "honey with Luke warm water" in empty stomach will help in weight loss (while some say it helps in gain weight), again there is a debate whether it should be done in morning or night before going to bed..

    So here is my question "Mixing a teaspoon of honey with Luke warm water", will it help in weight loss? If so which is the right time to have it? Early morning in empty stomach or at night before going to bed?.

    It would be great, if people who have done this or know about this help me in getting over this confusion :spin

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Happy dieting :thumbsup
    Cheers,
    Nivee

    honey when taken in luke warm water first in the morning - helps improving the digestive tract.
    This acts as an aid to weight loss.

    honey when taken with warm milk at night - basically helps to slow down the digestion, allowing the body to absorb more carbs and hence aids in weight gain

    nivee...it sure reduces your weight but you need to drink in empty stomach and more effective if you drink in the morning..after drinking do your exersices,this would help a lot in weight reduction...personal experience......

    Yes,

    Have it after brushing instead of tea.Have it daily.It will make you fresh and also in my case my complexion increased.Also there is no chance of acidity while dieting if you are taking this daily.:thumbsup

    Ptamil, I have 1 tsp honey with warm milk at night, couple of times in a week. (Because I like it, not with any weight loss or gain intentions) :p
    The reasoning you mentioned makes sense though!

    Geeta: I have heard my mom saying having milk with honey at night increases weight and warm water with honey in the morning reduces weight

    Later 'google baba ki Jay'..., reading about honey helped me understand what she meant.
    The term weight gain and reduction is misused/misunderstood when passing on information from one generation to another :)

    It is a basic metabolism process(I use this word now-a-days very often)

    Anyhow, having milk with honey at night induces good sleep. I have tried this and it works..

    Your are welcome Nivee.
    This is my routine:
    After brushing teeth, I keep water for boiling. Within the time it boils, I take half a litre of normal room temperature water. It helps in my bowel movements.

    Then I have warm water with honey, lemon. following that I do exercises for 30 minutes
    After that I have my Kanji . Then after having bath, I have my first coffee for the day..
