Our expert says:
Well done for losing those 3 kg in such a short time - keep up the good work. By reducing your energy intake and doing that exercise you will lose more weight. To reach a normal BMI of 25, you need to weigh 79kg, so keep at it. There is not very much difference between honey and sugar - honey has an energy content of 64 kJ/5g or per teaspoon, while sugar contains 81 kJ/5g or per teaspoon - honey thus contributes slightly less energy because it has a higher water content of 17% compared to 0,5% in sugar, i.e. sugar is a more concentrated form of energy. There is no harm in using a teaspoon of sugar or honey on your cereal or yoghurt if this makes high-fibre cereals and unsweetened low-fat yoghurt more palatable.
