My hubby and I watched That Sugar Film last week and I thought it was important to spread the word about this film. If you haven’t already seen this film then do yourself a favour and watch it and make up your mind about the messages this film portrays.
It wasn’t until about 4 years ago when I started my healthy lifestyle journey that I knew what this films main message is about. The caption for this film is “this will change the way you think about healthy food.” I know I have learnt a lot in the past 4 years and believe food manufacturers have a lot to answer for. What you think you are eating is healthy and is advertised as healthy in actual fact is not due to the amount of sugar added to a large percentage of products the everyday person consumes and I mean a large percentage.
If you knew this already you will at least learn something else positive from the film. I know I did in relation to calorie counting, I have never been an advocate for calorie counting for many reasons. I personally don’t think it’s a healthy lifestyle choice watching the amount of calories you have a day and I do believe if you are hungry then you should listen to your body and eat. If you are putting only good wholesome food into your body the amount of calories shouldn’t matter and this film proves my thinking right. Secondly as a Mum who has time to count calories! The conclusion about calories in this film is very interesting!
I recommend watching this film as it is very interesting and some parts of it will shock you! Well done to Damon Gameau and his team for getting this message out there! Watch it and make your own mind up about this film and the positive message it portrays!
