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 are we to tell her what to eat? It is her life she can afford the meds so let it go at least she isn't doing whip-it's.

Maintaining your obesity is not 'managing your diabetes'.
You can thank the Pharmaceutical companies for your sugar levels.
Nothing good is in store for the future of your health unless you become a.healthy weight.
* decend from soapbox*
That said, I love her Cobbler recipe.

I do not understand why Paula is being given such a hard time about her cooking when almost all the chef's and cooking show's cook the same way. They probably have something wrong with then also but they are not saying. It is her life, her body and if people do not like the way she cook's then do not watch her show. I think she is a funny gal with a good heart and if your going to give her a hard time then give all the other cooking show's the same treatment.

Just because you have diabetes doesn't mean you can't eat a burger and fries every now and then. You have to watch your insulin and take measures to counter act the spikes when they occur. The food police need to leave her alone.

lisazthats me    

People get a life. I come from a family that has diabetics. You can have a hamburger and fries. EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. It's not your life, it's hers. Like she says, diabetics is not a death sentence. My dad had desserts all the time, but only a small portion and mixed with other things. So what if it is on a roll, and she also had french fries. Cruise ships can make them healthy also if your diet requires them. You can even make healthy hamburgers. GET OVER IT. Don't be jealous because the woman has made a fortune and you haven't figured out how to do it.

Well let's get some snap shots of all you hypocritical morons opening up for a big bite of grub and call you fat a$$es. Don't hate Paula because she has money and you don't. She took what she enjoys doing and made a career out of it. I'm sorry your to lazy to get off your butts and do something productive with your lives. Good for her! Shes made a good living for herself and is happy. Go Paula, enjoy your life and riches, you deserve it girl!!

I've had type 1 diabetes since I was a child, and I understand how hard it can be to watch everyone else eat burgers,pizza cookies, etc. and know that you shouldn't have it. As with me, I do splurge every once in a while and just make sure to take the appropriate amount of insulin to go along with the food I've consumed. As long as Paula isn't eating like this every meal of every day, what's the harm in splurging? Who knows, maybe it's even a healthy turkey burger? Let her live her life and stop being so hateful and judgmental!

well she will be type 1 soon as diabetes type 2 is progressive, hope she doesnt mind injecting insulin four times a day.

Gotta love this woman!! How funny to see some of you trolls so worked up over a human eating a burger. Its so bizare that no one else that is overweight and has diabetes eats a burger!! Wow....Come to texas, people you will see it everywhere and has been going on for centuries!! Glad to see she is true to her word and enjoys her food, instead of sitting there unhappy because she has to eat a piece of lettuce and watch her weight. She's a big girl folks and a happy one at that.

I can sum up Paula Dean in one word, "Disgusting".

Diabetics can eat burgers and they can eat fries. They have to count their exchanges and carbs. Instead of ranting like maniacs why doesn't TMZ show some kind of understanding of the disease? And why not show a little compassion for people with it.
Why is it Gay is Ok and Fat is a mortal sin? Bigotted much?
