Dr. Amir Khan’s reaction to eating six times the recommended amount of sugar was described as “scary.”

Doctor Amir Khan ate six times the recommended amount of sugar to see if it could be reclassified as an addictive substance.

Adults should consume no more than 30g of sugar per day, according to the NHS.

Amir Khan, a doctor, embarked on a “teeth-rotting” journey by consuming 177 grams of added sugar.

This is the equivalent of 44 teaspoons of sugar or 44 sugar cubes.

Sugar, according to some experts, is an addictive substance that has similar effects on those who consume it as users of Class A drugs.

Sugar, according to consultant radiologist Doctor Sumita Chawla, affects the same part of the brain as cocaine.

“What’s scary about sugar, I think, is that you don’t think of it in the same way you think of heroin or amphetamine,” Doctor Amir Khan continued.

It doesn’t seem to affect the same part of the brain as hard drugs.

“In some ways, this makes sugar more dangerous.”

The average person would not hesitate to consume large quantities of sweets or chocolate, but would be more hesitant to experiment with drug use.

Doctor Amir Khan was initially taken aback by the massive amount of sugar he had to consume on a daily basis.

But by the eighth day, he’d grown accustomed to and almost enjoyed his sugary breakfast cereal.

“I’m getting used to eating a lot of sugar,” he explained, “so while this used to feel so alien on my palate, it now just feels normal.”

“I thought I’d be sick of the sight and smell of sugar because I’m forcing myself to eat so much of it, but that’s not the case.”

“I’m a little worried about coming off it,” he admitted.

“I don’t like profiteroles at the best of times, but now I do,” the doctor said after biting into a profiterole.

His month-long sugar binge had a significant impact on his mood as well as his taste buds and cravings.

“I get even more irritable if I don’t eat sugar now, so I feel like I need to eat it to be nice to people.”

“It feels like I’m becoming addicted to sugar.”

His physical health deteriorated as well, with his slim 69kg frame ballooning to 71.5kg in just one month, leaving the doctor with 2.5kg to lose.

His sugar binge had a variety of consequences.

He provided the following explanation:
