This morning on the radio the DJ's were talking about something pretty interesting. As most everyone knows now, Paula Deen is DIABETIC (who is really surprised, she puts 2 pounds of butter in everything). People act like it is the plague, Mrs. Deen being one of them. I waiver on this topic because just because you are a "celebrity" doesn't mean the whole world needs to know your medical records BUT if you are a chef, passing your recipes along to others, the recipes that have aided in your type 2 diabetes diagnosis you need to spill the beans. Right?
Now, I believe that Paula kept her lips sealed because
Now, don't get me wrong, diet plays a huge role in type 2 diabetes. You can help control your blood sugar (not always completely) by eating foods close to "the limb and the ground" but isn't that how we all should be eating anyways? You should know that you shouldn't be making Paula Deen's recipes every night for dinner. She is not a role model to health. She is a chef. Those two can be hugely different. She never once said that she was a healthy living chef.
I am passionate about this topic because I have people very close to me that are diabetic. It is not a secret for those they are close to. They all have bracelets, insulin shots, sugar pills and they are not ashamed. It is a way of life. A way of life that Mes. Deen was hiding, until the publicity was needed.
In conclusion of my
What do you think? Do you agree/disagree completely?
