DO COOKING SHOWS MAKE YOU FAT?
"“Top Chef,” “The Next Big Food Network Star,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Dining Downunder,” “Celebrity Chefs,” “MasterChef,” “Two Fat Ladies,” “America’s Next Best Restaurant,” “The Stir,” “Iron Chef” … the list goes on and on.
Yet still it seems America is far from full of food-centered television shows, with new programs continuously being added to the television smorgasbord. So with hundreds of hours of programming devoted each week solely to the subject of cooking, creating, entertaining and eating, could the food TV onslaught be contributing to the country’s obesity problem?
“While many popular cooking shows feature foods and recipes that are high in fat and calories, this does not necessarily mean they are worsening our nation’s obesity problem,” New York-based dietitian and creator of the F-Factor Diet, Tanya Zuckerbrot, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “These shows are cultivating better informed customers – from preparation to plating. TV chefs are inspiring legions of people who previously wouldn’t dare step into the kitchen and more folks are opting for a home cooked meal instead of fast food. This is significant considering that the average restaurant entrée has 60 percent more calories than the same dish created at home.”
However, Marlene Schwartz PhD, Deputy Director for the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University, said that while no formal studies have been conducted on these shows, she thinks that the overall impact in the short-term is that they increase one’s hunger levels. More importantly, watching a lot of television in general is one of the strongest predictors of obesity in children."
