The BBC is broadcasting a new show called The Truth About Sugar, which will follow four people as they eliminate excess sugar from their diet. Their challenge? Consume only six teaspoons of sugar per day. Prior to the challenge, all four individuals collectively consumed about 119 teaspoons of sugar daily, a number that has been drastically reduced to 24 teaspoons.
Each of the participants faces different obstacles throughout the program. Simon regularly drinks five or more cans of soda per day, whereas Rick has a problem with eating too many Indian sweets. Cara craves anything with sugar right when she wakes up, and Audrey eats processed microwavable meals (which are loaded with added sugar) as a regular part of her diet.
