So What??? over 60% of Americans have some sort of diabetes. It is not only Paula’s cooking but all of the fast food places that provide high fat food. You know what the American People love it.

I was just stating a fact. The poster said Paula needed to have a show featuring healthier food.

Her son has such a show.

As far as I am concerned, people can eat what they want. I am not the food police.

Read “Wheat Belly”.

The rise in diabetes isn’t due to people eating fat. It’s due to the increased consumption of carbohydrates (wheat, potatoes, table sugar, high fructose corn syrup, etc...), because eating carbs causes your body to produce insulin. Fat doesn’t.

That healthy, low fat meal that is built around pasta or bread is a prescription for diabetes.

Ironically, the common wisdom that people should eat “healthy, low fat meals” has directly lead to the increase in the consumption of carbohydrates, which is the primary cause of the increase in diabetes.
