Sugar ♥

That Sugar Film

Last night I went along to see That Sugar Film and boy-oh-boy, I gave my cupboards a good once over this morning.  We eat quite well at home – incorporating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables into our diet and limiting processed food as much as we can through home-made meals, but I have to admit it is really quite difficult at times.

I am a sucker for hot-cross buns and the odd chocolate treat … all processed and loaded with sugar!  I am keen to improve the food we eat at home and this movie certainly gave the inspiration needed.

THAT SUGAR FILM is one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves. THAT SUGAR FILM will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food.


Damon only eats the perceived ‘healthy’ foods that are in fact laden with hidden sugars like low-fat yoghurt, muesli bars, juices and cereals.

The quote from the movie that really struck a chord was if we remove all sugar laden foods from our supermarket shelves, we would only be left with 20% of produce.  Woah!  Get along to see it!

    Mmm…I watched it a couple of weeks a go at the state when it first came out and there was an interesting Q&A session afterwards with Damon Gameau and a surgeon from L’ton. Certainly provides some ‘food for thought’.
