One man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Own it now –

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.

Director: Damon Gameau
Starring: Damon Gameau, and featuring guest cameos from the likes of Stephen Fry, Isabel Lucas and Brenton Thwaites, interviews with Gary Taubes, Michael Moss and Kimber Stanhope plus a rocking soundtrack including Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and Florence and the Machine.

And there’s a lot of experts in the movie, I tried to find some youtube-links with those experts as well:

Gary Taubes

In this week’s video, I had the pleasure of interviewing medical researcher and journalist Gary Taubes. Notably, Gary wrote both “Why We Get Fat” and “Good Calories/Bad Calories” and is a pioneer of the idea that it isn’t fat that makes us fat, but simple sugars and carbohydrates. Join us for an in-depth discussion on nutrition, obesity, health, and more.

Lorsque l’on sait qu’un français consomme en moyenne entre 20 et 25 kg de sucre par an, soit environ 60 à 70 g par jour, on est en droit de se demander si ces quantités ne sont pas trop importante par rapport à nos réels besoins. Pourquoi le sucre plait-il tant ? Comment devient-on addict au sucre ? Est-il devenu la nouvelle drogue du siècle ?

Do you wonder if you are a sugar junkie? Here are some great clues…and a great solution.

Michael Moss

Every year, the average American eats thirty-three pounds of cheese and seventy pounds of sugar. Every day, we ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt, double the recommended amount, almost none of which comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food, an industry that hauls in $1 trillion in annual sales. In Salt Sugar Fat, Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative reporter Michael Moss shows how we ended up here.
