 Damon Gameau decided to try an experiment with sugar firsthand. He would spend 60 days on a high-sugar diet consuming 40 teaspoons of sugar a day - which is only marginally above the daily teenage average.

There would be a twist, however. Unlike the average teenager, he would only eat perceived ‘healthy’ foods – foods generally believed to be low in or free from sugar. That meant NO soft drink, chocolate, ice-cream or confectionary. His diet was filled withlow-fat yoghurts, cereals, muesli bars, juices and sports drinks: all of which are full of ‘hidden sugar’.

He was monitored by a team of doctors and scientist and he filmed the whole thing. This is not a film that insists people should quit sugar. This film is about bringing more awarenessa substance that now finds itself in around 80% of our processed foods. It's time to seriously question how it's affecting our bodies and the bodies of our children

Join me as I air my behind-the-scenes interview with Damon Gameau, the director and writer of this film "That Sugar Film."
