Oliver and Seacrest try to make Americans eat healthy

Ryan SeacrestJust what America needed, another celebrity telling us we need to eat better. British chef Jamie Oliver is teaming with Ryan Seacrest to create a reality show on ABC that will give eating "makeovers" to certain sections of the United States.

It's a nice idea, but I doubt it will make a significant impact on this country's eating habits. America is about getting food cheap and fast, so fast food is the nourishment of choice, and I say this as someone who practices awful eating habits. Processed food is inexpensive compared to other types. The best thing anybody can do to make us eat healthier is to somehow make healthy food cheaper (the chain that gets this closest to correct is Subway).

If they keep this "cheap and healthy" formula in mind, I think the Oliver/Seacrest team has a chance of success. The Biggest Loser has personal trainers to help each contestant. We'll see if Americans can succeed without one.

Seacrest doesn't need to eat healthy. He just needs to eat, period.
