Jamie Oliver Is Promoting Healthy Food for Weight Loss (but he is looking a bit overweight and the chef is not happy about it!))

Jamie Oliver came to Australia to promote healthy food. Unfortunately, the visit didn’t go as good as he would’ve expected. He was questioned about his own diet since some pictures reveal some weight gain for the famous chef.

It is true that there is a lot of pressure for celebrities but I’d say that you have to be a role model for what you preach.

Jamie didn’t only fail in showing the image a healthy eater has but he also sweared at the reporter who questioned him about his weight gain.

The truth is that it looks like this has become a huge news around the world.

The NYPost says:

It’s not just women who are sensitive when it comes to their weight. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver sniped at a reporter who dared to ask about his recent weight gain.

Oliver’s weight gain is ironic, as he has made battling bulge his mission. The celebrity chef took on childhood obesity in the ABC series “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” in which he tried to reform school lunches. The series ran for two seasons. Currently, the English chef is in Australia promoting the nation’s Ministry of Food, a cooking school that promotes healthful eating.

The UK Daily Mail said:

He’s used to taking politicians and parents to task over healthy eating.
But when questioned about his own diet in Australia this week, Jamie Oliver wasn’t quite so happy.


This is what Jamie said to the reporter:

“Are you from a tabloid? Thank you for noticing, you b—h,” said Oliver, responding to a journalist who asked if he had put on pounds lately during a press conference in Australia earlier this week. Oliver, who is known as the Naked Chef, did not make it clear whether he was joking or being sincere.
“I do my best,” he continued, reports The Herald Sun. “Working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things. I eat fresh. I train twice a week. I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best like most people when they hit 30.”

Jamie had to apologise

Oliver has already apologized for his remarks to the reporter.

“I went out last night and had a few drinks after a very long day,” he explained, defending his use of the b-word. “My brain did not quite understand that question.”

This is what Jamie told the Herald

“I do my best,” he continued, reports The Herald Sun. “Working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things. I eat fresh. I train twice a week. I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best like most people when they hit 30.”

My say is:

Sorry Jamie, but you are right you have to do better, you can exercise more (especially because your image is so important).
