BLUR bassist Alex James, 40, lives on his Oxfordshire cheese farm with wife Claire and their four children. Alex is backing the Sainsburys Eat Britain campaign, which encourages Brits to try regional produce. WHEN I get up I have six cappuccinos and some cigarettes, or if its the weekend Ill have a bacon sandwich. I have a cheese sandwich for lunch. For dinner Ill sometimes go and get a Chinese takeaway but ideally well have spuds from the garden with a bit of lamb. I have cheese and crackers rather than puddings. Ive rediscovered great British beers recently and Ill have a glass with my cheese. The fridge is stocked with home-made yogurts, butter, cheese of course, bacon and salami. Nutritionist Fiona Hunter says: BECAUSE Alex is naturally slim he clearly thinks he doesnt need to worry about what he eats, which makes him either very stupid or just nave. If he wants to be around to see his children grow up he needs to change his eating habits dramatically. His diet is too high in fat, particularly the saturated variety which clogs up the arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. It is also very high in salt, from foods like bacon, salami, Chinese takeaway and too much cheese. Theres so much about Alexs diet that needs to change but if he were only going to alter one thing, I would suggest he swap the breakfast cappuccinos, cigarettes and bacon butties for fruit juice or a smoothie and some porridge.
