Paula Deen is Announcing She Has DiabetesPosted: January 15, 2012
Paula Deen — the queen of high-calorie, Southern cooking — is about to come clean and confess that she can’t eat her own dishes anymore because she has diabetes.
The Georgia-born chef — a Food Network star who has written five best-selling cookbooks — has been trying to keep her condition a secret, even after the National Enquirer reported in April that she has Type 2 diabetes, which is often associated with fatty foods and obesity.

Paula Deen is criticized for cooking high fat, high sugar cuisine. Barbara Walters asked her, “You tell kids to have cheesecake for breakfast. You tell them to have chocolate cake and meatloaf for lunch. And French fries. Doesn’t it bother you that you’re adding to this?”

I went to her site and perused through about 20 recipes and what I found was recipes with no fat in them, not one recipe called for butter, many called for vegetable oil. Most recipes had a very high percentage of carbohydrates. Hey Paula; did you give any thought to simply LOSING WEIGHT and changing your diet?
And THAT is the problem with her food- Not the fact that her food is high fat, it’s that it’s the he wrong fats and too many carbs, too much emphasis on desserts.

WAKE UP AMERICA- Diabetes is completely preventable and totally treatable by SIMPLY CHANGING YOUR DIET. That’s right- control your carb intake, stop eating grains, add way more high quality fats and proteins to your diet…and you’ll get well. This is Not information that your doctor, or the pharmaceutical companies want you to know. Read this article about a young man I met last year who had just been diagnosed with diabetes. The advise Mayo Clinic gave him is absolutely criminal.
