    I was bull****tin with one of my buddies whose been personal training for some time now and he recommended to me that 30 mins before cardio take in like 1/4-1/2 cup of oats(cant remember the exact measurement and then right before i begin cardio take about a teaspoon of honey. He said it would spike energy and then give your a refreshed feeling after the cardio has been completed.....idk if this is legit or not but i am going to try it one of these days when im only doin a cardio day.

    Some people respond well to it backstage with rice cakes. Although honey is all sugar, its relatively low GI. It can very well be a natural energy source.

    Don't keep it around very young children. Clostridium and newborns dont mix.

    He means in regards to some people getting fuller before stepping onstage.Everyone reacts differently to different carb loads and he meant that some people get fuller and stay hard while eating honey and rice cakes. A friend of mine who compete will not agree with this as its a white potatoe that fills him up .

    Food for though eh

    I put some in my oatmeal in the morning. Tastes good man. I have also heard from numerous people that eating local honey helps with allergies...is there any truth to that or are the honey-vendors just making stuff up?

    Dont ask me the science of it, I never researched it. All I know is that prior to pumping up for prejudging ive seen guys and girls use honey on rice cakes maybe 15m to. I havent tried it.

    If you can get local honey. It helps with allergies since the bees would be using local flowers. I will try honey preworkout, I lime honey but haven't been taking it because I tend to forget about it

    I tell you what whenever I have a cold Raw honey and herbal tea is the way to go. I also like to put honey on my frozen fruit and put it in the refridgerator to thaw and its a pretty tasty treat.
