Remember what Morgan Spurlock did to his body in Super-Size me, where he ate nothing but McDonalds for a month? Well just replace McDonalds with sugar and you have That Sugar Film!
That Sugar Film, from Australia actor Damon Gameau follows a similar theme to illustrate that fat won’t kill ya, but sugar definitely will. Gameau targets the health food industry head on whilst exposing some home truths along the way.
Gameau’s life goes from being three years sugar free to eating 40 teaspoons of sugar a day (over 60 days) and documents the changes it has on his health, frame of mind and impending family.
Look, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work out that consuming that much sugar will eventually get you, but it’s what’s hidden within the healthy foods that we eat that will surprise you.
If you’re at all worried about your health or the impact of hidden sugars in our daily foods, you should probably at some point try and watch this documentary. Just remember to have your sugar hit before you go!
