Have been a cycle of VO2 work. Noticed that I have been loving Honey in the same time frame. Have a cream cheese Bagle, have to put Honey on it + 1-2 spoon fulls from jar directly to taste buds. Ohhh, that makes the mouth happy. Same with Green Tea. 1 spoon full for Tea and 2 for mouth...lol. I've never craved Honey like this before. Sure it has something to do with burning, mostly, carbs during workout.

Now I know why Bears and other wild animals suffer being stung to get the Honey out of a Bee hive.

Anyone else experience these kind of cravings?

Granted, I have a sweet tooth anyhow, but never for Honey.

I suck lots of honey straight from the bottle during training and racing. Usually just before a ride or race. The stuff is delicious.

Tey to get raw hoent from your area. Some say it will help w/allergies but only from your area. i eat about a pound and a half per week.

1 1/2 pounds per week! Wow. It's taken me a few months to go through 2 lbs. ...lol Sounds like I need to increase Honey consumption. Might help get rid of cravings for candy bars and sodas, too

I live in an agricultural area. No shortage of Bees, Honey or Allergies here.

I have some allergies. Might have to try that. Honey's a great tasting simple carb anyway.

What's beekeeping like? I'm afraid they'd all die on me in winter or something.

Don't use wild Bees. Them little bastards are mean!!!!

A few hundred built a hive in the ex's backyard. I got stung once on the ear, son got stung twice in the neck and his mom got stung three times in the back. They were even attacking a ball lyeing in the grass.

The bees left when the weather got cold and rainy. Went into backyard and found the hive. They dug a hole in dirt pile. The hive was about the size of a Soccer ball.

sounds like you got some mean bees. I think it would be awesome to have a garden and bees and whatnot... maybe that will be my summer project.

Honey bees don't live in the dirt .
The winter I only provide sugar water for food.
They maintain core temp for the developing young by "Balling"(gathering in a larger mass) around the young eggs..ect

Getting slightly off topic. What kind of Bees will make a hive in the dirt?

If they're not honey bees, that explains why local bee keepers wouldn't come and get them.

I was talking about the little bees that look like honeybees but are smaller. They call em yellowjackets around here.
