What’s Wrong with What You Eat?

What’s Wrong with What You Eat?

I admit I love Jamie Oliver. He has a relaxed attitude and he is passionate about cooking. Whenever I see him doing what he knows best it fascinates me terribly. Why? Because I see in front of me a person who is completely absorbed by what he does and who gives everything in order to produce a unique and tasty dish. And he does this without the slightest hint of effort.

But just because he is in the food industry it doesn’t mean that he encourages reckless eating and processed food. In fact he is a strong advocate of adopting a balanced diet that can diminish the risks of obesity and diet related diseases. He supports good eating, home-cooked meals and a good gastronomic education.

Further on you will see a TED speech that Jamie Oliver delivered in 2010. Here there are stories related to the anti-obesity project he developed in Huntington, West Virginia. These are all powerful facts that still affect the society in which we live. The statistics show that in the last couple of years people’s diets have changed dramatically and not in the good way. What you eat has plenty of circumstances over your body and can have a negative impact over your lifespan!

Great Food Project -The Junk Food Man

Great Food Project -The Junk Food Man

Junk food has become a serious issue in today’s world. More and more people have less time to eat a well cooked meal and prefer to grab something fast that can feed their immediate hunger. Even when they are on the road they tend to recur to unhealthy food to shush that stomach and keep on going.

But is this always a good idea? A dish that contains processed food will quench the hunger but it doesn’t include nutrients and proteins that maintain the organism healthy and balanced. And the fast food chains existent around the world are not even trying to ease things by adding healthy products in their menus.

As a cry for help, Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves have collaborated in order to create the Junk Food Man project. This is a very interesting presentation of the process of creating a man exclusively out of junk food. While it might seem like a fun activity, it is not as easy as one might think to combine together all that junk food in order to get the perfect combo.
