Generally, three to five tablespoons of honey a day is sufficient. A good regimen to follow is to consume a tablespoon or two of honey in the morning with fruit or yogurt. Another tablespoon should be consumed at bedtime.
In between, another one or two tablespoons can be ingested with fruit snacks. Honey contains about 60 calories per tablespoon. Generally, the percentage of ones’ total caloric requirements provided from simple sugars should not exceed 10%. Thus, the 180 to 300 calories a day provided from honey is sufficient, unless excessive energy demands allow for additional consumption.
