What Happens When You Drink 10 Cokes a Day For a Month?

You’ve probably at least heard of the documentary Super Size me, a 2004 Film directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock. The film follows a 30-day period from February 1 to March 2, 2003 during which he ate only McDonald’s food and the devastating consequences.

Well, someone got a little inspiration from this documentary and decided to drink 10 cans of Coke a day for a month to illustrate the damaging effects of sugar abuse… and, oh did he prove it!

George Prior, who follows a Paleo diet and works out regularly, is the brave person who decided to abuse a substance that is linked to 180,000 deaths worldwide to prove how easy it is to consume hundreds of grams of hidden sugar though beverages.

Prior wrote on his blog:  “‘But,’ you’re probably thinking, ‘everyone knows it wouldn’t be healthy to drink 10 cokes a day, and besides, I only drink four Cokes a day.'”

“That’s true, perhaps you’re only drinking four Cokes, but if you add in the two glasses of orange juice, the two sweetened coffee drinks from Starbucks, the 16 ounce Odwalla drink, the two ‘healthy’ brand ice teas, and the $9 fruit smoothie you waited 10 minutes in line for, you’ve made my 10 Cokes look like child’s play. 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 10 Cokes,” he explained.

By the end of the 30-day coke abuse trial, Prior gained 23 pounds.

Was it easy to shed those extra 23 pounds, you may be thinking? You can see the details of how he lost the “coke weight” here.

Have I mentioned that sugar is one of the food members I try really hard to consume in moderation? Because in today’s world, we consume shocking amounts of sugar.
