Fifty year old George Pryor is the latest in a series of “curious people” who decided to check how constantly consuming unhealthy food affects their body. Here are the results of his “experiments” …
Ten years ago, documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock decided to test what would happen to his body if during thirty meals he eats only in McDonald’s restaurants. (This is the movie he made btw. It’s called “Super Size Me“)
This, then 32 year old guy, entered by 5,000 calories a day and by the end of the experiment he gained weight for almost 11 pounds. The index of his body weight increased by 13 percent and he recorded a considerable mood swings, sexual dysfunction … It took him fourteen months to return to normal.

Until then, a healthy and sport submitted Pryor, in a month gained weight a little more than 12 pounds and his blood pressure got elevated to unhealthy 145/96. He also noticed that his body from time to time sought more sugar, despite the fact that only through this popular drink he was entering by 350 grams of sugar.
Pryor, who was recording all the changes in a every day video, says that what convinced him to start this “adventure” was the desire to increase awareness among people about how much sugar we consume daily and how it affects us badly.
“People need to be aware of the real power and influence that sugar is doing to our health,” he said. “I would never repeat something like this. I do not like to be so unhealthy. ”
Earlier this year the World Health Organization has advised people to halve sugar intake on a daily basis. In Britain are even considering the introduction of “sugar tax” to reduce the number of obese population which has reached an alarming level.
