Man On Sugar-Heavy Diet Gets Stunning Diagnosis After 60 Days
Australian actor Damon Gameau decided to conduct a rather extreme experiment to show how “healthy” food is actually unhealthy. He is 60 days eating all those foods that otherwise qualify as low-fat and healthy – fruit juices, fruit yogurts, cereals and sports drinks. After a few weeks of such a diet, full of hidden sugars, received a fatty liver, gained a few pounds and began to feel lethargic and irritable.
Damon before this experiment spent three years avoiding products that contain added sugar, but because of this experiment again started eating them. Namely, he is knocked from his diet ice cream, sweets and fizzy drinks, which obviously contain a lot of sugar. But he began to regularly consume low-fat products, which typically have much more added sugars.

Even if you did not eat ice cream or drinking carbonated beverages, after only a few weeks of “healthy” foods to which it is indicated that a reduction in the percentage of fat, he began to feel the negative effects of added sugar.
The doctor told him that he got a fatty liver, and it is estimated that in Australia more than six million people suffer from this disorder. Terrifying is the fact that only every thousandth fatty liver comes from the alcohol, but in all other problem in the diet.
He also began to feel lethargic, sluggish, irritable, and claims that he did not feel satiated even though he put the same amount of calories. One of the psychologist in his film explains that sugars and how these impact on the psyche, and to become unstable if you consume too much sugar.
