Honey Exception

Probably the most controversial thing about SugarBroke is the “Honey Exception” to the sugar abstinence rule. You can read our rules here on the Sugar Broke Challenge Page:

Yeah, I’ve heard all the arguments that Honey is the same as sugar and my body will process it in the same way. But I just don’t FEEL the same after honey as I do with sugar. Maybe my body is different than others. There is some science behind this, honey has digestive enzymes and fiber that process the sugars better than refined sugar alone.

I have allergies. I live in a dry, dessert with tumbleweeds. My doctor told me to get on local honey. It has worked for me. Call it a placebo effect if you want, but I don’t have the late summer allergies that I always have.

So, at SugarBroke, we allow Honey in moderation.

Today I had Two Large Scoops

Last night was my wife’s birthday and she had cakes and pies and all kinds of desserts at her party. And I abstained. And today is my 9th day of no sugar. I’ll be on 10 tomorrow and for me that is a huge victory.

But, I was feeling sorry for myself. So, this morning, instead of 1 spoonful of local honey into my oatmeal, I put two heaping scoops. I don’t feel guilty.

There was no sugar crash. There were no ill effects. Just me and some honey and a smile.

And Jesus ate Honey: checkmate skeptics

Luke 24:42

And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb
