Description

In the vein of "Supersize Me," Damon Gameau becomes a human guinea-pig when he puts himself through a grueling 6 week diet consuming the equivalent of 40 teaspoons of sugar a day...the average daily amount consumed by teenagers! This bold, colourful and entertaining film explores all things "sweet" and exposes the damage that fructose (processed sugar) is doing to a generation of addicts.

    This was an easy to understand documentary that was even entertaining for our kids. It helped us start the conversation with them about making healthier choices.
  • Eye-opening and Hilarious

    I thought I knew everything I needed to know about sugar un-fun facts, but I couldn't understand why, despite all the changes I've been trying to make for weight-loss and health, it hasn't been working. The brilliant approach in this movie is not just that he's eating sugar, he's eating products which are supposed to be healthy, but are loaded with surprising amounts of sugar. And it's appalling to see how quickly the diet of eating these products had such negative effects on his previously very healthy and fit body. It was also very illuminating to see the effects of this diet on his alertness, motivation, and mental outlook. The sugar crashing makes him lethargic, moody, exhausted, unmotivated. HIs approach is incredibly intelligent -- he asks the right questions, explores surprising angles, consults with amazing people, and then conveys what he learns in a way that is insidiously imaginative, hilarious, and funny! I started watching and then went out to the grocery store and loaded up on some simple, healthy foods! Very inspirational!

    Absolutely great documentary! Very entertaining and easy to watch. Definitely changed my view about sugar and so called "healthy food". Must watch for everyone.

    This film shows the effects on a healthy person, from eating sugar. It is not supposed to be data filled, but does show a sugar-coated story about what happens when a healthy sugarless person eats like everyone else. It does make the point and is very entertaining, sometimes too sweet!
  • Great for kids to see !!

    I shared this documentary with my 3 kids, and it REALLY helped them understand how sugar is not only in the obvious place (e.g. soda + candy), but also hidden in the regular foods that we eat, and how moderation is critical to a healthy development. Very highliy recommended.

    Finally, a film that got through to my husband and kids! One Mountain Dew has 34 teaspoons of sugar?! Considering the body should only have 4tsp a day, this is a major awakening as to what we're doing to ourselves and our children. The visual effects on what sugar does to our bodies and brain really made an impact on how my family views their diet. This film is not only educational, but entertaining. I've been off sugar for almost a year. It was hard, but life changing and well worth the effort. Getting my family on board was 10x harder. Thank God for this film! Between the processed food and pharmaceutical companies......we're doomed if we don't change.
  • This movie changed my life!!!

    I definitely recommend this film to anyone who is struggling with their diet. This film proves that there is no "healthy" processed sugar...After watching this film I stopped eating sugar completely no more trail mix or granola bars! I hope this film will change your life as well. If it doesn't at least you will learn the truth.
  • Worth every minute!

    I went into this already knowing processed foods and hidden sugars were a menace but this really brought it home! The visuals, both of the foods and the physiological changes, were incredible. Sine I am primarily a visual learner, this was a huge step towards freedom from the sugar cycle! I'll be able to recall the images when those cravings come knocking and it'll help me get through them to the other side. THANK YOU!!!
