That Sugar Film

Maybe this one wasn't the ideal movie to watch before Easter weekend.   It certainly made me back away from the biscuits and have some fruit instead.

Basically this Aussie documentry maker Damon  Gameau , who lives the good life without a lot of sugar decides to take on the average persons diet of 40 teaspoons of sugar a day.  At first he thinks it will be hard to do, but as he discovers sugars are in 80% of products at the supermarket.

Without eating junk food, sodas or sweets he consumes sugar through juices, yogurt, cereals, bread and ready made meals.  The effects of weight gain, fatty liver and foggy brain happen rapidly but are also reversed once he returns to his normal eating.

A movie that we should all watch, not too long and presented in an easy way to consume the information.  4/5

Isn't horrible all the crap that goes into our food these days? Maybe that movie needs a wider distribution.
