Queen of the Fat Diet May Announce She has Type 2 Diabetes…

Speaking as an overweight diabetic who is desperately trying to take the weight off and has gone Vegan in his diet, seeing this news about Paula Deen. the pork fat queen, was revealing.

According to The Daily:

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.

Sources say Deen, 64, who never addressed the diabetes question, has worked out a multimillion-dollar deal to be the spokeswoman for a pharmaceutical company and endorse the drug she is taking.

Novartis, the drug company she is said to be working for, declined to respond to Flash’s questions, as did Deen’s agent and Deen herself.

“Paula Deen is going to have to reposition herself now that she has diabetes,” said one source. “She’s going to have to start cooking healthier recipes. She can’t keep pushing mac and cheese and deep-fried Twinkies when she is hawking a diabetes drug.”

I’ve been watching her on The Food Channel and wondering how someone could eat like that and be so heavy and not be at death’s door. I only wish Novartis, whose products co0st me and my insurance company a fortune, would pay to let me endorse their products.
