Is honey good for you while on a diet?

I bought some honey but I read it and it has sugar in it. I wonder if the man will let me take it back. I am craving something to drink other than water. I was going to try this. But I won't be opening it unless it's good while on a no carb diet. i just hate when I can't manage plain water sometimes. I hope the store takes the return.

It's glucose, a sugar. It's as bad as fruits, containing fructose. And I guess you can't have fruits on a no carb diet. And just like fruits, it is very nutritious and better than plain white sugar. Honey is also a good antibacterial to disinfect wounds. Real honey is usually expensive but it doesn't expire. It can crystallize, but it won't expire. I don't know what you can drink, because many things contain carbs.

Honey has carbs, but it is healthier than refined sugar.

@sharon6345 If you drink tea or coffee with sugar, replace it by honey.

Yes it's better than sugar. Taking a glass of warm water with lemon juice and honey on early morning empty stomach is good

There are a lot of natural 'helpers' that can boost your weight loss, and one commonly suggested aid is honey. Is honey good for weight loss? Or is it just another diet myth? To lose weight, you need to reduce your overall caloric intake and increase your

Does your honey have a nutritional label? if it does it should say how much sugar is in it as well as how many carbs and then you can determine if it fits into your diet

Honey without any additives is ok in small proportion. Honey is just a healthier sugar.
