Currently watching Jamie's Eat To Live. In metaphorical terms, he's taking 20 average Brits, and beating them the fuck over the head with science and nutrition. He put one girl in a tub, and poured in how much fat she was eating per year over and above her RDI, and it overflowed the tub. One lady started crying when she found out that, given her age and weight and diet, she likely had 7 years to live, statistically.
I don't agree with how he says "The Body Mass Index will tell is PRECISELY what your risks are." No, the Body Mass Index will give the most basic, rudimentary guidelines, and is generally unreliable, and you should know that (but since Jamie's mission in life is to cajole, coerce, and basically terrify people into eating healthy, he can be forgiven.)
I can see why he was voted one of the Least Popular Brits a few years ago: he can be a jerk, but as a Canadian, I can step back and I can see WHY he's doing it. He's on a pretty impressive mission to take a country with eighty (80!) times the population density of where Kyrose and me live, who subsist almost entirely off of packaged foods since they can't possibly grow all their own (actually, they can, they just don't want to pay for it).
Also, one thing I loved: they were talking about how nearly every cereal and baked good has doubled it's sugar content since 1977, including Special K. Special K in 1977 had half as much sugar as it has now. Then the show went to commercial break, and the SECOND COMMERCIAL was about how Special K will make you thin.
