Summary: Jamie is out in the United States this autumn making his next prime time series for American TV on ABC. It's set in the lovely town of Huntington, West Virginia, which has been called the unhealthiest city in America. But frankly, Huntington has the same kind of problems with bad health, obesity and diet that people have all over the United States, and back home in the UK. Jamie wants to take a look at what kids are eating at school and what families are eating at home. His big challenge will be getting the whole community to rally together and be able to cook with fresh ingredients. He's seen how, with a little bit of confidence, people can quickly start to change the way they eat and live.

Summary: Using a simple math equation, Jamie teaches the West Adams High students a practical lesson about the short term consequences of their unhealthy food choices. The message becomes far more emotional when Jamie invites a few guests suffering from the painful, long term effects of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure to share with students some unforgettable stories of their struggles. Meanwhile, Jamie helps a busy, devoted single father and his two young boys to open their eyes to their destructive daily cycle of eating fast food, and to rediscover the physical and emotional value of preparing and eating a home cooked meal together. Things really get ugly when Jamie learns first hand who was responsible for the decision to revoke his film permits and ban him from preparing food in any school across Los Angeles. He refuses to accept defeat and devises a plan to move his kitchen across the street from West Adams High, but will this be enough to make a real impact?
