The new ABC reality show, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, targeted Huntington – America’s fattest city -- as the starting point in the celebrity chef’s quest to reverse the United States’ growing obesity problem.

Rest assured, that Huntington isn’t our Huntington. It’s Huntington, W. Va., where nearly half the adults in that town and its surrounding area are obese.

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution airs at 9 p.m. on Fridays.
