A fresh look at the tie between fresh food and good health
5 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution is a new take on connecting diet and health in a concrete way. The entire season is spent inside "America's unhealthiest town," based on rate/age of death. Jamie is so impassioned about the subject that he would rather help the citizens up than look down on them. Along the way he does step on a few toes and must be shown where his statements become insulting, but everyone is able to apologize and move on. The families and schools with horrible eating practices are encouraged to identify the weakness, grasp the scope of the problem, and then make positive change. The show preaches moving forward, not shame of the past.

The proposed diet changes in the show are not about losing weight, they are about eating healthy – weight loss is a consequence of healthy diet and exercise. Jamie is about using real, fresh ingredients to make nutritious food. He's forced to deal with the issue of money in the school and help hammer out a budget, though the show's biggest weakness is in this area as families may still be left wondering how to afford this better food.

Americans, and many other Westerners, need a place to be able to go and say, "I need help. I don't know how to cook, I don't know how to feed my kids in a healthy way," without any shame. Jamie Oliver's food revolution is a great first step. Anyone who needs help should start here to see that you are not alone. Anyone who wants to help should start here to understand the depth and breadth of the problem.

Obesity is an epidemic in today's world. Pointing figures, placing blame, and wondering "what if we had done things different" is not going to get us anywhere. This show is concerned with starting today and looking towards the future. It's slightly political, slightly spiritual, and completely honest.
