Honey is one of the sweetest and most delicious foods out there, made from the labor of thousands of bees working together in unison to provide for themselves and those around them.
Bees are struggling due to many factors such as neocotinoid-coated seeds, EMF towers, indiscriminate pesticide spraying, genetically modified foods and much more, but did you know that supporting your local beekeeper or buying raw honey can actually help you to achieve a flat stomach?
Eating honey all day probably won’t lead you closer to that goal, but eating it at the right time just might. Most people know that honey is far healthier than refined sugars because it reaches the bloodstream more slowly and won’t spike blood sugar nearly as much.
What they don’t know is that the glucose boost provided by honey is actually some of the best liver fuel you could ever get in your diet, as it helps the liver to perform all of its countless detoxifying functions within the body.
While most people still believe that losing weight and getting a tight, flat stomach that’s mostly free of belly fat is more about counting calories and burning them off, supporting a healthy body chemistry with the right high quality foods at the right times will lead to far better results.
In the case of honey, the best time to use it to help eliminate belly fat is to take a teaspoon or so of raw honey right before bed. Make sure the honey is truly raw and unheated from a farmer or a farmer’s market rather than the grocery store (these honey products are often heated).
It may seem counterproductive to eat honey late at night, but it’s actually quite ingenious: the glucose from the honey will be released slowly into your system, allowing your liver all the fuel it depends to detoxify and cleanse your system.
Since toxins often manifest themselves as fat cells around your midsection (this is actually the number one reason why most people can’t get rid of stubborn belly fat), it’s important to support the liver as much as possible. And making sure your liver has a readily-available source of fuel by using raw honey at night is one of the best ways to do so.
I personally have tried this trick with both honey and coconut nectar, and while the honey works better in my experience, both are excellent for supporting the liver at night. I wake up feeling a little more refreshed, and my midsection has shrunk dramatically since using little tips and tricks like these.
Grab some honey and give it a try: it just might be the little boost you need to release those last few stubborn inches of belly fat.
