Honey and table sugar have about the same sugar units. Both contain glucose and fructose. Honey has a few more calories than table sugar per same serving.
Since honey is "sweeter" you may use less but we're talking minimal calories here (about a 6 calorie difference per teaspoon.
The small amount of micronutrients in honey over sugar aren't really significant.
Bottom line... use what you like but using neither is better than using one or the other.
My post-workout recovery drink (for workouts lasting longer than 2 hours) is 16 ozs of skim milked and 6 teaspoons of sugar mixed in.
My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)
