    Is Paula Deen going to be villified because she announced she has diabetes? Seems like a media dogpile or something. Now we can pretend we all just want to eat lettuce.

    I lost 40 lbs on the Primal Blueprint. Fish, Chicken, Pork, Beef with hamburger meat thrown in for good measure and plenty of vegetables. What I left out was all the wheat, bread, cereal, corn, dairy and processed meats with the exception of heavy cream for my coffee. The FDA food pyramid will kill you. But don't worry, the FDA has a pill for that (See the connection?)

    I looked at Paula Deens' website and her cooking doesn't look bad to me. What the fatties aren't telling you is that they are binging on Little Debbie snack cakes, candy and processed junk food. THAT'S what's making them fat.

    I never count calories but my weight went from 226 to 186 in about 5 months.

    She is certainly responsible for her own diabetes! Now she should release her cholesterol levels.

    Deep fried cheesecake with chocolate sauce. Quiche with a pound of bacon. I understand she is reformulating her recipies to make them less deadly. In her defense, she did say that people should only eat these foods in tiny bits, but who heard that part?

    She has the right to market whatever recipes she likes.

    Why would I villify her? She didn't give it to me just herself.

    My parents got drunk with her on one of their monthly "Gatlinburg Harley trips" last year. My sister is diabetic, so that is what got my mom and Paula talking. My parents said she does not drink like she has diabetes lol

    Diabetes has a lot to do with genes.
