This Wednesday on Drive, Bec and Jeziel are going to break their 4 month long sugar fast, by attempting to eat a 3kg donut within 30 minutes!
So on Weekdays with Mike, Jeziel popped in to ask Naturopath Mel for some advice. “We were allowed to have organic honey, all fruits. Just no processed sugar.”
After overcoming her shock at the idea, Mel offered a warning. Eating 3kgs worth of sugar in 30 minutes isn’t healthy for anyone, let alone after going cold turkey for 4 months. “I think your body is going to be in absolute overload because all of a sudden you’re going to need all of this insulin coming from the pancreas to deal with the higher blood glucose level…I don’t think you’ll be feeling well, in fact I’m pretty confident with that…My advice would be not to do it”
Despite Mel’s warning, Bec and Jeziel will still be attempting the eating challenge at 4pm tomorrow. But maybe with a doctor on standby. What do think of this idea? Let us know your thoughts by texting or messaging us on socials.
