Jamie Oliver began his odyssey to change America’s eating habits in Huntington, WV and it was reported in a British Channel 4 documentary, Jamie’s Food Revolution.  Here’s the American trailer:

At the time, the British Daily Mail ran an article about Huntington, WV, USA, the Obese capital of America.

So many people think that the individual people of Huntington are being criticized.  I don’t agree.

I frequently visit America (I have family there and we live part of the year in Florda).  I am made most welcome, and people like to take me out to dinner.  I always used to return home ill.  At first I fixed the problem by taking ALL my nutrition with me, and studiously avoiding American food, and then I was fine.  Now I eat paleo/primal/very low carb and I’m fine.

And my American family and friends didn’t understand what I was going on about … but that’s because they have hadn’t experienced anything else.

It’s a puzzle.  They think that Daily Mail article is poking fun (well, its the Mail, it probably is, but Jamie wasn’t).

They don’t recognise the love and care.



That’s what I said back in Oct 2010.  Things are changing.  There is a huge recognition of the harm that sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and grains are causing.  It will take a while, but we will get there, eventually.


Subsequently Jamie won a TEd talk prize: here’s his brilliant presentation.  I think it is total dynamite. If you have any interest in you and your children living long, healthy and happy lives, then watch this!
