2. I ate 40 teaspoons of sugar a day. This is what happened
A shocking (and hilarious) article from Damon Gameau, who after giving up sugar for three years, reintroduced 40 hidden teaspoons a day for 60 days to see how would it affect his health. No prizes for guessing that it wasn't an improvement... His story features in the documentary 'That Sugar Film', a huge hit across Australia.
