Most of the diabetics I know are genetically disposed...in fact all of them are.
Rachel Ray must be eating Paula’s cooking. It’s the only way to explain Ray’s weight because her recipes are lousy.
So she’s now promoting a drug that is used to cure a condition that is caused by the type of foods she has been teaching people how to prepare?
I’d have more respect for her if she revamped her show to teach people how to cook meals that don’t lead to diabetes.
My wife and I were hosted by a true, southern-fried couple for dinner a couple of months ago - my arteries are still recovering from that meal...
What a hateful headline and lead!
The National Enquirer?
They’re right about this
AND they were right about “Bath-House Barry”.
My husband is 145 lbs and has Type 2 diabetes and has always eaten very healthily. Sometimes it isn’t about the food or the weight. And sometimes the diabetes causes weight gain as well since the body can’t process sugar/starch.
Like there's something wrong with that.
If more Americans embraced Paula Deen's cooking, this country would save billions in social security and pension payments.
That Anthony Bourdain sure knows how to get people talking. The No Reservations host sounds off on other food stars in TV Guide Magazine.
He has the strongest words for Paula Deen. The worst, most dangerous person to America is clearly Paula Deen, Bourdain says. She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and shes proud of the fact that her food is f bad for you [...] plus, her food sucks.
The First Wookie must be wearing a Cheshire cat grin today.
Truth is, I hold fairly libertarian ideas when it comes to diet and weight, including personal responsibility. I know there are medical conditions that cause weight gain, but too many times it's a failure of the calories consumed/calories burned equation.
So, what's the name of Paulas big fat secret TV chef?
So, to settle the issue once and for all, one of the largest, longest and most expensive randomized, controlled, primary dietary intervention clinical trial in the history of our country was launched in 1993. This was to be THE study to end all studies and proponents believed it would finally prove the benefits of not just low-fat diets, but what has come to epitomize the government's very definition of healthy eating. According to the National Institutes of Health, it was "one of the largest studies of its kind ever undertaken in the United States and is considered a model for future studies of womens health. It was a major undertaking, costing $415 million and was conducted at 40 medical centers across the country. It was a well-designed and carefully conducted study and researchers were confident this would prove the rightness of eating right.
The women in the healthy eating intervention group cut their total fat intakes down to 24% of their calories and 8% saturated fat the first year well below the control group eating about 38% total fat and nearly 40% more saturated fats. By the end of the study, the healthy eaters were still averaging 29% fat, compared to 37% in the control group. The healthy dieters also ate about 25% more fruits and vegetables, grains and fiber than the typical American diet of the control group.
Most of the study results were published at the beginning of last year, in a series of articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association. If healthy eating showed health benefits, the results would have been shouted far and wide. Since they werent, youre probably beginning to guess that it failed to support long-held beliefs about healthy eating. And you would be right.
More than 8 years later, there was no difference in the incidences of breast cancer, colon cancer, heart attacks or strokes among those who ate healthy and those who ate whatever they pleased!
Paula Deen has diabetes because she’s obese. If she lost 45 or 50 pounds it would probably go away. My brother in law’s doctors told him the same thing but he just can’t force himself to diet. So he takes insulin.
If I could cook like her I’d have diabetes too. Kinda like coal miners that get black lung. Comes with the profession.
The ignorance is shocking.
Carbs are the killers. You need insulin for the cells to burn glucose.
Fats and proteins do not require insulin for the body to use them as fuel.
My Type 1 diabetic sun can eat cubes of butter all day long and not bolus a single unit of insulin to deal with it. Two double-stuff oreo cookies, however, require 1.5 units (21 grams of carbs).
Deen is suffering from insulin resistance, which is the body’s rejection of the insulin it produces.
Weight loss CAN cure Type 2 in many cases, but not in all cases. Met a rock hard 45 year old women, 118 lbs, and has Type 2.
The state of research on diabetes is pathetic. I was at a seminar on Type 1 in Seattle and asked whether anyone had actually confirmed that the Islet of Langerhorn cells in the pancreas had actual died.
The answer was, across almost 70 years of research on the topic - “No.”
Hasn’t stopped hospitals from explaining to patients that their Islet cells have died, causing a ‘sundowning’ of insulin production from the pancreas.
A couple of Canadian researches, on a whim, wondered whether those Islet cells, rather than be dead, were instead inflamed to the point where the cells couldn’t excrete the insulin.
They gave rats bred with type 1 diabetes a shot of capscacin (basically, the ‘hot’ in ‘hot sauce’ and hot peppers) and sure enough it cured the rats to the point where they were producing insulin.
The shot had to be readminitsterd once a month, but the point was that a $2.65 shot of capscascin could ‘cure’ a type 1 diabetic.
The state of modern science is not in a good place of late.
could never watch her on tv. she was an instance “click” like geraldo.
her magazine covers always looked creepy. like a psychotic souther lawn knome.
I guess they forgot to mention that she still smokes too (another secret she hasn’t disclosed publicly).
