Description

Director and “human lab rat” Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, while consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Under the guidance of scientists and nutritionists, he eats a high sugar diet of 40 Tsp. of sugar a day for 60 days. The catch is that he does this without consuming any soft drinks, chocolate, ice cream or confectionery. Entertaining and provocative, That Sugar Film will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food. In sweeping away the illusions and clarifying the facts about sugar, the film aims to educate and create a lasting dietary change around the globe.
