When I did my sugar experiment I was looking to answer certain questions, some of which I have listed below:
Can sugar lead to a natural form of addiction.
Does Sugar activate brain pathways similar to addictive drugs?
Why and when do you crave sugar?
Sugar releases opioids and dopamine, which can have addictive potential.
I bet it will be easy for you to get people to happily participate in your sugar experiment. Follow the steps and have fun.
Gather a few participants, who can be your friends or class fellows, to take part in the experiment. Make sure all the participants are available for two consecutive days.
The NO-Sugar Group
Instruct one group not to eat anything that has sugar content. This will be done for 24 hours that the experiment is in process.
The other group
Tell the other group to eat things which have a high sugar content. This can include candies, desserts or ice creams. They will have to stick to this diet plan for 24 hours too.
Recording after 24 hours
Gather the groups after 24 hours and ask them to make a list of all the items they have eaten till now. Try to calculate the sugar level for each participant based on the type of food they ate.
