Paula Deen

Screw Diabetes ...

I'm Eating a BURGER!!!

1/26/2012 6:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula Deen cruising through her hamburgerType 2 diabetic Paula Deen is unfazed by her life-threatening disease -- practically unhinging her jaw this week on a Caribbean cruise ... to take a heart-stopping bite out of a cheeseburger.

The picture was snapped Monday on board a Celebrity cruise ship -- where the 65-year-old is currently tempting fate, hosting her annual "Party-at-Sea" vacation for 400 devoted followers. It's hard to see, but there are also fries on her plate.

The cruise left Miami on Saturday -- and it's set to visit Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten on the 7-day calorie-filled round trip.

So far, it's unclear if they serve salads.

It is true being a diabetic does not mean you can never eat your beloved foods again but planning is necessary to achieve balance. Something tells me if she has known for three years about her ailment and she is still 75-100 lbs overweight she is not taking it very seriously. My doctor told me that very few people can manage diabetes even with meds for the long haul so I hope she is not relying on med to do the trick. I think the reason so many people are repulsed at what she is doing is because of what the disease does to your sight, legs and ravishes the body. It will kill you and no food is worth it.

One of the worst human beings ever to live. She's on a list with Hitler.

Leave the woman alone. She is an adult and besides, burgers are not totally off limits to a diabetic. I know because I have been diabetic for years. It is important to count carbohydrates. a burger generally has 2 portions of carbs, protein plus lettuce and tomatoe. With no fries, or shake this is an ok meal. a salad is a perfect side order.

"Guess what? Not news. Not even any of your bloody business in the first place. Maybe you should do a story on what differentiates "journalists" from "arrogant busybodies." Oh, and print it on a bright yellow background, while you're at it. *disgust*"

"Journalism" my fat white arse.

Paula is like a drug addict who is in denial. She probably has heart disease as well. Yes, it is her life, but she has no business trying to be an example of how to live with Type 2 diabetes which is what she's trying to make money doing.

I'm on a diabetic diet that includes eating hamburgers ???
Yes I was surprised too but the hamburger is the protein portion of the meal

This is news? She's 65. Let her eat what she wants. Why are we so obsessed with having to live til we're 100. I've seen a lot of really old people. It's not a grand prize.

She can eat whatever she wants BUT losing weight is part of getting type 2 diabetes under control. In 3 years she hasn't taken that seriously either.

Ya'll keep saying that diabetics can eat hamburgers. Okay. The guy who founded McDonalds was a diabetic. Do you know how small a regular McD's burger is? That is the size a diabetic can eat. That is your standard size bun and burger patty. Look at what Paula is eating! It's not that. It's a mammoth burgers. And there are fries too.

Now for sure I won't watch her show or have anything to do with this FAKE. Why did she wait 3 years to go public about the Diabetes? Because of MONEY! She made sure she locked in an ENDORSEMENT contract with a pharmaceutical company.... GREADY B---h.Turn her OFF... and her son too!!!

Newsflash...diabetics are supposed to eat. They don't live on water and communion wafers. Now, if you showed a picture of her diving into a 3-layer cake, that might be newsworthy. Don't diss this poor woman every time she gives herself sustenance.

Actually being under the microscope may be a good thing for her. It may force her to change her ways and realize that she's not fooling anyone with her so-called healthy eating and preaching moderation. She'll have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

She is probably now trying to do damage control, since everyone has been accusing her of changing her diet of the past three years. She most likely did this to prove she is still eating horribly, which does nothing to change the publics opinion about her endorsement deal, her hidden health issues, or the fact that she was an extremely powerful public figure who influenced the way we ate and live in this country.
