Described as Australia’s answer to Supersize Me, THAT SUGAR FILM sees Damon Gameau tackle an altogether more worrying nutritional issue. Over 60 days, monitored by a team of medical experts, he commits to consuming 40 teaspoons of sugar per day- frighteningly, the Australian average.
The healthy Gameau, who hadn’t eaten refined sugar for the previous five years, set several rules for his experiment.
He was allowed no confectionary or soft drinks and had to maintain his normal exercise routine. The sugar he consumed could only be obtained from so-called ‘healthy foods’ such as breakfast cereals, low fat yoghurts and fruit juices.
