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.

"Who cares, let her eat what she wants and be happy" is a nice sentiment but as a T1 diabetic I live a fairly restricted dietary life. Why, you may ask? Because some day me and a whole lot of other folks will be on Medicare and I don't want to burden the system because of my irresponsible behavior. It's about personal responsibility to my fellow Americans. It's also a pretty bad way to go. Blindness, kidney failure, neuropathy. Carb counting and healthier choices can allow you to have a pretty varied diet. Her publicist must be having kittens.

Did you know that filling your heart with hate causes it to be stressed and can lead to all sorts of health issues including heart attack, stroke and other diseases?

So if you never drink too much, smoke, tan too long, stress over little things, work too hard, starve yourself to be thin, feel anxious, carry bitterness or hatred for others or do anything else bad for you... throw the first stone. Oh I forgot, people who are healthy, happy, mentally content and care about others don't carry stones, do they?

I don't care what she eats, I just think it's wrong for her to be a paid endorser for a diabetes drug. Seems kind of greedy to me. Hey, if she loses weight now she might not need the very thing she's being paid to push -- OH NO!! I guess the moral of the story is this: It's okay to be overweight with type 2 diabetes as long as you take the drug Paula Deen is endorsing. That'll make it all better y'all.

The only one she is hurting is herself - as long as she can pay for her own health care. Don't want to have Type 2 D? Watch what you eat - not what she eats

Dear TMZ Staffers--Do any of you know anything about diabetes? At all? She's eating a cheeseburger, not a bag of sugar. And what do any of you know about what she ate the rest of the day? Seriously, first you need to read up on diabetes, and then you need to leave the older lady alone.

She herself has admitted that she is not going to change her diet. Ever seen the show? Her food is loaded with flour, butter sugar... That's what she eats.

OMG she's eating a burger HOW DARE SHE?!?!?!

TMZ, you are pitiful. I could understand you breaking news about someone doing drugs or getting a dui or going to rehab, because that is a 'scandal'. But you're going to get on some poor old woman for eating a BURGER because she has diabetes? Wtf are you, her doctor? MILLIONS of people have diabetes, and eat what they want sometimes. That is up to THEM. Why are you monitoring what she is eating?

She isn't breaking the law, she isn't out of her mind on drugs, she isn't hurting anyone around her, she isn't getting dui's, she isn't doing anything wrong. Seriously get a ****ing LIFE and stop attacking a cook for eating.

And Harvery, nearly 26 MILLION PEOPLE suffer from diabetes in this world. 26 million. Do you think that they all stop eating everything that is 'bad' for them? Do you even know anyone with diabetes? Not only is having a burger NOT off limits for a diabetic, but diabetics can STILL EAT SUGAR every day. Just in moderation and they have to check their blood sugar throughout the day.

Are you uneducated idiots so dumb that you think that people with diabetes have to stop eating sugar entirely? Do your homework!

This article demonstrates that the editors and writers at TMZ are completely ignorant about Diabetes.
