This series takes on world-leading scientists and the food industry in an attempt to understand the truth about sugar.
Sugar! What’s not to like? It’s being touted as highly addictive and the biggest contributor to the current worldwide obesity epidemic. We used to think high in fat diet was to blame so who’s the real bad guy?
Clinical psychologist and presenter Nigel Latta embarks on a journey to discover if sugar could be the real culprit in this crisis. After an initial blood test his initial confidence in what he’d previously considered a healthy lifestyle is snatched away, and what was first a stunt for TV suddenly becomes a very personal journey trying to find out what we really should be eating. He takes on world leading international scientists and the food industry, carries bloody heavy stuff up a hill, and radically changes his diet in an attempt to both understand the truth about sugar, and try not to die sooner than he has to.
