George Prior, 50, from LA, decided to start his own campaign against excessive sugar consumption. He carried out an experiment that showed what a can of Coke do to our bodies.
He Drank 10 Cans Of Coke Daily And Here’s What He Looked Month After
His experiment involved drinking ten cans of Coke every day for a month. He was consuming 900 extra calories and 250g of sugar every day. In just 30 days he saw drastic changes to his formerly healthy and muscular physique.
He developed a protruding stomach and waistline and his weight ballooned from 168 pounds to 192 pounds. His blood pressure went up, from 129/77 at the beginning to 145/96 at the end.
In just 30 days, George, was transformed from boasting a healthy and muscular physique to sporting a pot belly, love handles and moobs (Watch the video below).
Experts warn fizzy drinks contain sugar but have no other nutritional value, and Mr Prior said he found it hard to eat as much food because the Coke left him full at lunch and dinner times.
“I think there are a lot of people suffering health problems like diabetes and heart disease, who aren’t aware they could help themselves by just stopping sugar.” – said George Prior.
The World Health Organisation published draft guidelines urging adults to eat no more than five cubes of sugar a day.
Children should try for less than five cubes of sugar a day and avoid cans of fizzy drink such as Coke, which contains seven cubes.
There are many studies that show a link between high sugar consumption and many different health conditions and diseases.
People who consume sugary drinks regularly—1 to 2 cans a day or more—have a 26% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who rarely have such drinks.
A study that followed 40,000 men for two decades found that those who averaged one can of a sugary beverage per day had a 20% higher risk of having a heart attack or dying from a heart attack than men who rarely consumed sugary drinks.
Harvard researchers have recently positively linked soft drinks to obesity. The study found that 12 year olds who drank soda were more likely to be obese than those who didn’t, and for each serving of soda consumed daily, the risk of obesity increased 1.6 times.
