Notă biografică

Mike McInnes was born in Edinburgh in 1943, he attended Holy Cross Academy and then went on to study pharmacy at Heriot- Watt College, qualifying as a pharmacist in 1969. After working as a pharmacist for Boots and in private practice, he finally opened his own pharmacy in the Craigentinny/Lochend area of Edinburgh in 1983. In the 1990s, Mike commissioned John Dewar of the architects Dignan Read and Dewar to build a radical new modernist pharmacy in steel and glass. In 1994 this new pharmacy won first prize in the most prestigious Scottish architectural award, The Regeneration of Scotland Award, and became one of the most successful community pharmacies in Scotland. In 1997, Mike sold his pharmacy to The Boots Company. From this point Mike then focussed his attention on sports nutrition, researching the specifics of energy partition and selection during exercise. His research led him to believe that honey could be the Gold Standard fuel for forward provisioning the brain, via the liver, during exercise and stocking up for recovery. Further research resulted in the discovery that sleep is a high-energy system with respect to the brain, and that failure to forward provision the brain prior to sleep leads to chronic nocturnal metabolic stress and aborted recovery. He continues his studies into the health benefits of honey, and is passionately convinced that the Honey Diet could be the most significant and cost-effective contribution to public health and learning in several generations. Mike lives in Edinburgh with his wife Theresa. They have four children: Christine, Stuart, Graham and Janet and three grandchildren: Oskar, Rob and Isla, all of whom love honey
