Here's a good primer on Sugar vs Honey as regards to Glycemic Index.

Honey vs. Sugar

My hubby puts honey in his coffee.... (think he got that from me, because I drink tea, but now use only lemon....) is that bad for sugar etc.. as well? He got his 2 year card in October of last year, but he's not getting any younger. He does a high protein diet, as well....just won't eat guac. LoL.

Try natural sweeteners from the stevia plant. I use Truvia sweetener for coffee. Tastes just like sugar and all-natural, zero calories.

PackRat is right about Stevia. I buy Stevia from the health food store in one pound containers. I think the brand is NOW I am still unpacking from my recent move, but will post better info when I find my Stevia. Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar, but the body does not metabolize Stevia like sugar. From my understanding, pure Stevia can be used by diabetics safely. I never use sugar; it's like poison. If you use Stevia, at first it tastes like artificial sweetener, but you will soon become accustomed to it. Because Stevia is so much more sweeter than sugar, you only need to use a tiny bit of it to sweeten your coffee or tea. If you like tea, buy unsweetened tea and add a little Stevia. Thanks to Mr. PackRat for bringing this up. Stevia is a hidden gem to those who want to break the sugar addiction.
