Disappointing and boring so far.

They are making mistakes by not distinguishing between sugar and added sugar. Like saying ketchup has high sugar but most of that sugar is from the tomatoes.

I find Fiona Phillips intolerable.

And is it really surprising that sweet & sour sauce and fizzy drinks are high in sugar?

Exactly. I wonder how much she was paid for just stating the blinking obvious.

When I saw the thread title I was hoping it might be the Truth About Lord Sugar. Disappointing indeed.

Fiona's getting to look a bit like Gillian McKeith.

This doesn't strike me as particularly scientific, the team that ate more might just have had a bit of a guts on it, or had people on it that had gone longer without food

I agree, this has been a bit of a shambles, could have been interesting

This is a really lazy programme, not all sugars are the same as this programme is suggesting...for crying out loud I am scared to drink orange juice tomorrow haha...and no mention of the fact that most natural sugars are quite healthy in balance with a fairly average active lifestyle so far

God, what a boring programme. Does Fiona practice what she preaches ? She doesn't exactly look a picture of health to me.

A sure sign that she's probably on every trendy fad 'healthy' diet going.

Oh look, let's make yet another tv programme about sugar, call it "the TRUTH about sugar", yet tell us everything we already know plus some lazy unscientific 'facts', and get some mouthy, preachy has-been tv presenter to front it. Waste of time

In defiance of the nonsense I've just watched I'm going to have an extra spoonful of sugar on my sugar puffs tomorrow morning and wash it down with an extra sugary coffee

Ditto. Potentially interesting programme unwatched on my part due to her involvement.

Same. I was expecting quite the shocking exposť.

What is the truth about sugar, then?

Similar but (ironically) light version of other recent programmes on the same sublect.

HOWEVER - with the netball teams - there were 9 women on the Red (Sugar) team at the end - but only 7 in the blue team stood next to the table of food.

So obviously there would be more eaten off the red table if there were 2 more people !!

I cannot be bothered to watch on i-player - but if someone is going to watch or watch again - please count the netball players at the start of the segment on each team, and let us know if they were fiddling it.

This show made my blood boil

A week after Comic Relief and the BBC fill a room with tables of food to tell us "Sugar is bad".. a scientist fills 5 bowls with sugar, Syrup & Honey to say "They`re all the same thing"

Fiona gets people to guess the amount of sugar in a drink by putting spoons of sugar in a bowl.. why didn`t she just ask them to tell her how many.

Anyway, this must be the 50th program to tell us about the dangers of sugar

Sugar is not inherently bad. Added sugar is, because it is unnecessary calories and generally no nutrients.

Sugar also does not cause type 2 diabetes, fat does. Fatty blood stops insulin being able to transport glucose from the blood into cells (almost all of which are fuelled by glucose) and so the sugar builds up in the blood.
