One man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Actor Damon Gameau (Underbelly) embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’ but which are in fact laden with hidden sugars – eg low-fat yoghurt, muesli bars, juices and cereals.
This is one of our all-time favourite documentaries to show people starting to learn about nutrition. It shows you that simple changes can make a huge difference and it sheds light on how much the food industry controls what nutritional information is taught in the name of greed. It’s got big names including Hugh Jackman and Stephen Fry as well as acclaimed writers like Gary Taubes (author of Why We Get Fat and Good Calories, Bad Calories). It’s a huge amount of information taught in a really fun way. Damon is really charismatic and this is a must-see!
It’s not available for free sadly, but we implore you to pay the £3.50 to watch it! It will change the way you think and inspire you – regardless of your nutritional understanding.
