50-year old George Prior from Los Angeles, California documented his experiment that involves drinking not one, not two, but ten cans of Coca-Cola per day for an entire month!
35 grams of sugar per can so that’s 350g ingested every day. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are:
As expected, the results were not good. George’s former healthy and muscular physique changed drastically. His Coke-devouring habit resulted in a pot belly, he lost muscular mass and his weight rocketed from 168 lb to 192. Not only that, his blood pressure also shot up from 129/77 to 145/96, that’s way above the ideal 120/80. This lead to an increased risk of heart disease or stroke. According to George, this experiment also made him crave for more and it came to a point where he was scared he might be addicted to Coca-Cola.
- Men: 150 calories per day (37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons).
- Women: 100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons).
During the experiment, he still ate the usual healthy stuff he eats. He simply added Coke in the picture. Too much of it.
The aim of George’s experiment was "to raise awareness about how much sugar you drink every day, and to remind you how unhealthy it is." As he said on his website: "Maybe it's not all coke, but they're all sugar drinks, and a big percentage of Americans drink at least the sugar equivalent of my ten Cokes."
