If you are a martial arts instructor who cares about educating your students on sugar and healthy eating, you need to watch That Sugar Film. The film is very well done and fun to watch. We highly recommend a movie night for parents and students where you show this film and discuss it afterwards.
That Sugar Film is one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar and how it relates to healthy eating. 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 yogurt, muesli bars, juices and cereals.
We are not focusing on the wonderful natural sugar found in whole fruits and vegetables. Our goal is to help people reduce the amount of added sugars they are consuming ~ Damon Gameau
The Sugar Film website is filled with more information, and tools to help individuals and families to make the necessary changes to remain healthy and strong.
Damon Gameau is looking to do so much more than just the film. His aim with his website is to provide a place of learning, inspiration and action. You can access free recipes and e-books, find out how to host your own screening of the film, order a School Action Toolkit and participate in our schools activation program, as well as Damon’s tips and methods to explain how he got healthy again after his experiment. You can also take action to help reduce the sugar content in school lunches and in a your community.
