That Sugar Film

About 10 years ago Morgan Spurlock starred in the groundbreaking film Super Size Me where he ate only McDonald’s food for a month. Now, Australian TV actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau is taking a similar approach. He stars in That Sugar Film which will air in Australian cinemas in early 2015. In the movie he too alters his diet for a month, but this experiment has him eating a low-fat diet, which therefore is higher in sugar. What is interesting about this movie is that he tries to consume “healthy” low-fat foods. That is, he doesn’t dive into soda and candy. He chose a lot of foods that would appear healthy to a consumer because they are advertised as low in fat. The trailer below gives a hint of what the results were, including a truly impressive onset of fatty liver disease in only three weeks.
