All diets are the same right? Not according to Mike McInnes, creator of a new diet incorporating honey and resistance training. The sports nutritionist/pharmacist is the first to focus on liver functions for a successful weight loss plan. The diet claims that eating honey before bedtime fuels the liver, allowing the body to activate hormones that burn fat. Without the extra fructose, the body spends most of its energy stabilizing blood sugar levels instead.
IT advocates the two things that most dieters avoid - eating at bedtime and ducking the gym.
But the hibernation diet promises to help people lose weight while they sleep.
The strategy, developed by an Edinburgh pharmacist and sports nutritionist, is said to be used by champion boxer Alex Arthur and endorsed by Olympic gold-winning cyclist Chris Hoy.
The diet, hailed as the new Atkins, advises eating a couple of teaspoons of honey before bedtime and training with weights instead of gruelling aerobic workouts.
While Mike McInnes and his son Stuart were helping athletes with nutrition, they discovered that eating fructose-rich food such as honey, helped burn fat and increase stamina.
These hormones are fuelled by fat, so rather than working to regulate blood sugar, when you eat honey before going to bed the body burns more fat.
"Take your liver to bed empty, and your body canâ¬(TM)t get to work with those hormones because itâ¬(TM)s desperately trying to sort out your blood glucose levels.
A good nightâ¬(TM)s sleep is important to allow the hormones to get to work, so the diet advocates sleeping in total darkness, getting rid of electronic lights and thin curtains.
You can also increase the amount of fat you burn by doing what is known as resistance exercise.
But instead of having to spend hours on the treadmill and in aerobics classes, this can be done with 15-minute weights sessions three times a week, according to the diet.
Unlike aerobic exercise, it only requires 15 minutes weight
training a session to reap the benefits, Mr McInnes claims.
Chris Hoy goes to Mr McInnes for nutrition advice and started using fructose drinks to increase his endurance.

With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
