Synopsis

The Honey Diet by Mike Mcinnes

With just a spoon full of honey and a night's sleep, you can watch excess weight fall off you, according to the sweetest, easiest diet--it couldn't be simpler or easierHoney has always been regarded as a food with almost magical, health-giving, and healing properties. Now the latest scientific research backs this up. We are always being told that sugar is bad for us, and that is true of most types of sugar--but science shows that honey is good sugar. Just a tablespoon of honey every night before you go to bed will give your body exactly the right type and quantity of food it needs to burn off excess weight during the night, and help to reduce your craving for other--bad--sugars during the day. This honey will also give you golden slumbers--deep, long-lasting, dream-filled sleep that will help you wake up happy and refreshed, and help restore your immune system and your body's natural balances.

About the Author

Mike McInnes was born in Edinburgh in 1943, he attended Holy Cross Academy and then went on to study pharmacy at Heriot- Watt College, qualifying as a pharmacist in 1969. After working as a pharmacist for Boots and in private practice, he finally opened his own pharmacy in the Craigentinny/Lochend area of Edinburgh in 1983. In the 1990s, Mike commissioned John Dewar of the architects Dignan Read and Dewar to build a radical new modernist pharmacy in steel and glass. In 1994 this new pharmacy won first prize in the most prestigious Scottish architectural award, The Regeneration of Scotland Award, and became one of the most successful community pharmacies in Scotland. In 1997, Mike sold his pharmacy to The Boots Company. From this point Mike then focussed his attention on sports nutri-tion, researching the specifics of energy partition and selection during exercise. His research led him to believe that honey could be the Gold Standard fuel for forward provisioning the brain, via the liver, during exercise and stocking up for recovery. Further research resulted in the discovery that sleep is a high-energy system with respect to the brain, and that failure to forward provision the brain prior to sleep leads to chronic nocturnal metabolic stress and aborted recovery. He continues his studies into the health benefits of honey, and is passionately convinced that the Honey Diet could be the most significant and cost-effective contribution to public health and learning in several generations. Mike lives in Edinburgh with his wife Theresa. They have four children: Christine, Stuart, Graham and Janet and three grand-children: Oskar, Rob and Isla, all of whom love honey
