    Scotsman: Sugar Before Sleep + Lifting = Weightloss

    http://news.scotsman.com/scitech.cfm?id=30522005

    Spoonfuls of honey make dieting easy as falling asleep

    CHRISTINA STOKES


    A SCOTTISH pharmacist has developed a new diet which allows slimmers to burn fat while they sleep by eating honey before bed.

    Mike McInnes, 61, came up with the diet when he was helping athletes with their nutrition. He discovered that eating foods rich in fructose, such as dried fruits and honey, helps people burn fat and increase stamina.

    The body burns more fat during the first four hours of sleep than it does during any other activity, including exercise.

    Eating two teaspoonfuls of honey before bedtime and doing resistance exercise three times a week helps to stimulate this process.


    Mr McInnes said most of the commonly-held wisdom about weight loss is not true.

    He said: "People think they can lose weight by not eating in the evenings, or by cutting out carbohydrates.

    "And they are told that spending hours in the gym will help them lose weight.

    "Of course, spending time in the gym gets you fit - but in an hour of aerobic activity you only burn an ounce of fat.

    "This diet uses recovery biology, the process which burns nothing but fat.

    "The most important time for fat-burning is in the first four hours of sleep."

    ====

    Well, his inclusion of resistance exercise (lifting) means your metabolism gets shifted into a higher gear for a longer-term basis, which would help lose weight.

    I have honey, but I'm not about to start eating tablespoons before bed. Thoughts?

    I'd want to see some more science on that...
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Hmm. Some poignant half truths.

    Aerobic activity doesn't "burn" much in the grand scheme of things, this is true. But it isn't very good at improving fitness.

    The biology of recovery IS at the crux of exercise/metabolism benefit....but we're never burning JUST fat.

    His arguement against isn't very solid.

    No change. I'm still going to be taking my protein and low-GI carb meal before I retire.

    After some thought, he's obviously a shill, planted to boost the beekeeping economy.

    So what would happen if I did resistance training 3 times a week, but skipped the honey before bed? Is he saying that I wouldn't see any results? I like Don Gwinn's initial assessment.
