What happens when you drink 10 sodas a day? Inspired by Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me” documentary, in which the filmmaker ate nothing but McDonald’s food for an entire month, George Prior documented what happened when he drank 10 Cokes a day for 30 days.
On his website, 10Cokesaday.com, Prior explains that he wanted to raise awareness about how much sugar people drink every day.
There are 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar in a 12-ounce can of Coke. The World Health Organization recommends a limit of 25 grams of sugar per day.
To lose weight he will follow the Paleo diet and eat only foods eaten by early humans, including meat, fish, vegetables and fruit without dairy, grains and processed food; Paleolithic humans did not eat pizza or drink soda.
Prior started his 30 day soda journey at 168 pounds, with a body fat percentage of 9%. Thirty days and 300 Cokes later, he gained 23 pounds and increased his body fat percentage to 16%.
In a series of videos, Prior, who claims he’s on the Paleo diet, documented how he felt and his weight gain.
“After drinking 10 Cokes all day, then we had friends over for trick-or-treating and I had pizza, I had some beer, went out trick-or-treating with the kids,” said Prior in a video. “I had some candy with the kids when they got back and I laid in bed for a couple hours with my stomach hurting and not feeling very well.”
