The visiting team

What’s it like to work a photo shoot on location for the Food Network?  Here’s a taste.

It’s mid-morning and no longer raining, now that the canopy over our work tables is finally in place, and I am across the street–half on the sidewalk, half in the gutter–from all of the action. Sports Illustrated is on the action side, shooting their annual Football Gridiron Tailgate special.  Bobby Flay is grilling in front of a Brooklyn brownstone with two of the New York Giants, and many hungry “neighborhood extras” are about to consume a lot of food in just an hour and a half.  I am part of the Food Network kitchen production crew, providing and styling the food for this photo shoot.Bobby’s having a great time.  Beside himself, cooking with the Super Bowl champions! The food looks great…that is, when I can see it.  When the stoplight on the street turns red, taxis and FedEx trucks idle and block my view.  That’s okay; I don’t need to see to know what is going on. If something’s wrong, I’m sure I will hear it first.  I focus on cooking more food on uneven tables with portable burners that the wind keeps blowing out.

People roll down the windows of their cars and ask what is being filmed.  Some love Bobby Flay and the Food Network, and want to chat, holding up traffic.  Others are Giants fans, and some are disappointed, their myopic illusions of an all-star Law and Order with Brad and Angelina dashed.

    Hydroxycut is sold at conventional retailers, online retailers, and through direct television marketing. Prior to May 2009, its primary ingredients included Garcinia cambogia, Gymnema sylvestre, chromium polynicotinate, caffeine, and green tea. Like many nutraceuticals, according to the New York Times, its efficacy has been questioned and not well-supported by research.[5]

    Hydroxycut was promoted as being created and endorsed by doctors. Television advertisements for Hydroxycut featured Jon Marshall, a graduate of Midwestern University's osteopathic medical school, and still in residency. Hydroxycut was also endorsed by its formulator, Marvin Heuer, Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Florida, and Former Chief Scientific Officer of Iovate Health Sciences, the company that markets the product.

    The New York Times reported in 2003 that internal documents from the manufacturer of Hydroxycut indicated that the company buried studies showing that Hydroxycut was ineffective, covered up evidence of cardiac side effects, and even tampered with the documents it submitted as evidence in the lawsuit.[5] An accurate assessment of the safety of dietary supplements in the United States, including Hydroxycut and other weight loss supplements, is hampered by a lack of oversight and regulation of the supplement industry.[2]

    Ultimately, scientific evidence of serious side effects from Hydroxycut products accumulated, including liver failure (requiring liver transplantation in some cases), rhabdomyolysis, and at least one death, of a 19-year-old man who used the product. On May 1, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to consumers to stop using Hydroxycut immediately because of the risk of serious side effects or death. The manufacturer then recalled the products,[3] although a new formulation of Hydroxycut weight loss products has been created and is being sold.[4]
