    I don't really see the problem with her making fattening food and having type 2. Most people can eat shit like that if you do it occasionally and in moderation and it doesn't get out of control. Much of the problem is that people have no self control. It's not Paula Deen's fault if someone can't figure out that you can't eat 3/4 of a red velvet cake in one go. That said, I know that not everyone that has diabetes is because of their lack of control, I'm just using it as an example of why I don't think there's an issue of her making full butter recipes.

    How Paula Deen Is (and Isn't) Changing Her Diet

    Despite being diabetic, there are some things Paula Deen doesn't plan on giving up, like the occasional dessert.

    But as the celebrity chef reaches out to fans and foodies about her Type 2 Diabetes, she admits there is one indulgence she's had to completely eliminate from her diet.

    "I gave up sweet tea. It was not easy for a Southern girl," Deen, who revealed Tuesday that she's known she was a diabetic for three years, tells PEOPLE. "I would start drinking my sweet tea at lunch, and I would drink it up 'til I went to bed. It was staggering how much sugar I consumed in empty calories just from drinking my tea."

    Also on the chopping block: white products, which she's swapping for wheat grains. "I don't eat as much cake as I would like," she adds.

    Outside the kitchen, Deen says she exercises on a treadmill every day, and she prefers to work out solo.

    "I have to learn on my own that I'm responsible for me, not a trainer," she says. "It's something I have to pull up from my bootstraps and do myself."

    Deen is collaborating with drug maker Novo Nordisk and just launched Diabetes in a New Light but says she also wants to reach out to her fans.

    "I want to try to get across moderation," she says. "My fans see me two to three times a day on TV, watching me cook my Southern food, and it's hard for them to realize that's only 30 days out of the year that I film those shows. So that leaves 335 to 336 days left that I'm not eating those foods."

    Very few people in the United States eat anything in moderation (33.8% obesity rate), which is why Paula Deen's recipes are like a sugar and deep fried fat bomb lobbed into the middle of a NAAFA convention.

    I love sweet tea too, but I save that shit for occasional. It's better than full octane cokes, though, I guess. My dad loves sweet tea and could not go without it, so he finally had to start making it with some gross ass sugar substitute. I'd rather drink unsweet than drink Splenda in it.

    Anthony Bourdain Calls Out Paula Deen on Twitter

    The feud continues, y'all!

    Anthony Bourdain, who famously blasted Food Network star Paula Deen last year, calling her the "most dangerous person to America," has weighed in on the news that Deen – known for whipping up decadent desserts like Twinkie pie and coconut chocolate chip gooey cake – suffers from type 2 diabetes and is now a paid spokeswoman for a diabetes medication.

    In a thinly veiled Tweet hours after Deen's announcement on Tuesday, the outspoken New York chef wrote: "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later."

    Last summer Bourdain called Deen the "most dangerous person to America" who's "proud of the fact that her food is f------ bad for you."

    At the time, Deen – whose recipes include chocolate cheese fudge made with Velveeta – fired back that Bourdain should "get a life".

    Name-calling aside, trainer Bob Harper says Deen needs to overhaul her life for the sake of her fans and her own health.

    "Her food is just entirely too decadent. If you eat like that, it's going to come back and bite you," says Harper, who is helping a new crop of overweight contestants shed pounds on season 13 of NBC's The Biggest Loser. "She's going to have to get in the kitchen and find a way to get creative with the foods she loves to eat, make them healthier."

    And striking an even gentler note, Dr. Travis Stork, ER physician and co-host of The Doctors, adds: "Life is all about choices. The light bulb moment has to happen for everyone – hopefully this is Paula's."

    Anthony Bourdain is a pompous, arrogant, asshole, who is just pissed because Paula is getting more attention. He sure does love to ride her coattails.

    Default Paula Deen Is a Greasy Villain

    Well well well, obesity rates in America are finally "stabilizing," at 112%. Kidding, it's not even 40%. We've managed to avoid a clinically obese majority. This is considered progress. No thanks to you, Paula Deen.

    We're not happy that Paula Deen has diabetes. I mean, one would have to be aggressively stupid not to guess that diabetes would probably result from a steady diet of deep fried stuffing on a stick and double chocolate gooey butter cake, but that's no national crisis, unless your name is Paula Deen. Considering the deep-rooted American middlebrow culinary affinity for butter, sugar, salt, and fry, Paula Deen was merely the embodiment of something much more fundamental than herself. She was the Kelly Clarkson of celebrity chefs—undistinguished, unoriginal, full of empty calories, and wildly popular.


    Oh well. Somebody has to be that person. What Paula Deen has done in the past doesn't really bother us. Eat crap, get fat, get diabetes. Simple karma. Sure, it's bad that she encouraged millions of Americans to cook that unhealthy shit, but to each their own. Free will and whatnot. If a million Paula Deen fans want to give themselves and their families diabetes along with their hero, that's their business. Even the biggest health nut would have to admit that deep fried stuffing on a stick is probably tasty.


    That's not the problem with Paula Deen. The problem with Paula Deen is that, after being diagnosed with diabetes—after being handed a big, flashing "Atone for your lard-soaked ways" sign by god—she chose not to humbly receive the message, in her nice little down home Southern Jesus-respecting way, and set about trying to change for the better, and perhaps to convince some of her acolytes to stop killing themselves the same way.

    Maybe become a vegetarian. Save a cow while you're at it. No. Instead, she decided to accept a shitload of money to endorse a diabetes drug. She managed to find a way to eschew responsibility for the damage she's done as much as possible, while also making money for herself. She managed to send the message: Continue eating my special fried bacon mashed potatoes, likely obese Americans. You can always shove some Victoza™ brand non-insulin injectible medication into your clogged veins when your body starts to rebel. Food is your drug, and when it starts to kill you for real, well, there are always... drugs.


    Actual Paula Deen quote: "You can have diabetes and have a piece of cake. You cannot have diabetes and eat a whole cake." No, Paula. No cake for you. You've had quite enough cake. Have some quinoa. Cake is for people who've done their squats.

    ^^what a stupid article. Paula is not responsible for people having diabetes anymore than Robery Dole was responsible for erectile dysfucntion, well maybe that is a bad example.

    If Robert Dole had been marketing really bad porn previously, it would be a great example.

    I don't have an issue with an obese woman pushing crap food on tv. It's a free society, and you can do what you want, your body and health. It's no skin off my ass if people steam shovel shit into themselves and need to ride around on scooters 'cause they're too fat to walk. Go USA!!


    I do however have a huge problem with her pushing the drug, and a larger problem with our drug companies in general.
