Experts say, the first thing you should do when you get up in the morning is to drink a glass of light honey water. You should pick honey which is liquid without crystallization, the color should be light, and the flavor should not be too sweet. By drinking honey water you can both add moisture to the body and nourish the stomach, whilst promoting your metabolism.
The vitamins and minerals in honey–including riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, zinc and magnesium–can help your body dissolve fat and cholesterol, according to the website Organic Facts. Honey also contains antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals that destroy cells. According to Oregon Health & Science University, 1 tablespoon of honey has 64 calories and no fat. It is also five times sweeter than sugar, so you need less of it to sweeten beverages and food items.
YOU WILL NEED
250ml warm water
1 tbsp of honey ( use less if too sweet for your liking )

PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING
If you’re diabetic, or have other blood-sugar control issues, be aware that honey has the same carbohydrates as white sugar and can therefore affect your blood sugar the same way. Also, be careful not to eat too much honey. Honey is, after all, intended to be food for baby bees and to help them put on weight. As such, honey is a calorie-dense food. Measure the honey so you know how much you’re using so you don’t consume too much.
