After dramatically reducing his sugar intake, Damon Gameau became slimmer, calmer, fitter and happier. He was also very curious: why did the elimination of sugar have such beneficial effects on his health and wellbeing? He decided to experiment and film the results. He would eat a diet that was high in sugar but that didn’t include junk food and fizzy drinks. He consumed 40 teaspoons of sugar a day just from foods that are marketed as “healthy”.
The results were staggering. Within a couple of weeks, Doctors who monitored his health throughout warned him that he was on the road to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. His journey took him not just down a path to ill health, but to outback Australia and to the backblocks of the USA. He interviewed food manufacturers, health experts and large-scale consumers of the white stuff.
That Sugar Book follows Damon on his journey and blows the lid on how the food industries make and sell our food, and how they are complicit in, and indeed determined to, maintain the status quo on the world's alarming and health-destroying sugar consumption.
