Paula Deen Caught Eating a Cheeseburger (Food Nazis in an uproar)
http://abcnews.go.com/ ^

Posted on 01/26/2012 12:07:59 PM PST by jakerobins

Last week, TV chef Paula Deen announced that she’s been suffering from type 2 diabetes for the past three years. She acknowledged that a person has “to make changes in your life” but apparently, Deen hasn’t apparently changed all that much. TMZ posted a photo of Deen woolfing down a cheeseburger on Monday while on a 7-day Caribbean cruise. The 65-year-old chef was hosting her annual Party at Sea vacation for 400 fans. TMZ says Deen also had fries on her plate.

Uh-oh! I guess Paula didn't have a Moochelle Food permit to have a cheeseburger....She will be sent immediately to a Re-education(re-vegetation?) Camp!

Good God these food Nazi’s really make me sick. Paula Deen can eat whatever she wants, its HER life. Meanwhile Michelle Obama, who goes around preaching about eating healthy, eats like a pig and no one cares

Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
Made it nearly seventy days
Losin’ weight without speed, eatin’ sunflower seeds
Drinkin’ lots of carrot juice and soakin’ up rays

But at night I’d had these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat
Not zucchini, fettucini or Bulgar wheat
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
Not too particular not too precise (paradise)
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise

Heard about the old time sailor men
They eat the same thing again and again
Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
Well it reminds me of the menu at a holiday inn
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/jimmy+buffett/cheeseburger+in+paradise_10150068.html ]
Times have changed for sailors these days
When I’m in port I get what I need
Not just Havanas or bananas or daiquiris
But that American creation on which I feed

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Medium rare with mustard ‘be nice (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well good god almighty which way do I steer for my

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Makin’ the best of every virtue and vice (paradise)
Worth every damn bit of sacrifice (paradise)
To get a cheeseburger in paradise
To be a cheeseburger in paradise
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise

Coda:
I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well good god almighty which way do I steer for my

Deen is white, and white women are supposed to be skinnier than a string bean. Black women like Mooochelle are allowed to be full-figured.

Not only that but a cheeseburger has protein as well as carbs. She may not have been planning to eat all those fries, or even all that cheeseburger. What idiots.

Cheeseburgers, being mainly protein, don’t cause spikes in one’s blood-sugar.

Well the fries are a worse choice for a Type II diabetic than a cheeseburger.

People who take diabetes medication can have the occasional cheeseburger. Enjoy your burger, Paula, and I’m gonna have to go out and buy one of your books.

Liberals want to control every single thing a person does..Government controlling EVERYTHING, including what you put in your mouth. Not saying that Paula Deen, who has diabetes, should be eating cheeseburgers but its her decision..she wants to eat a burger, good for her. I love burgers, might go grab one from Johnny Rockets tomorrow :-)
Oh and meat is also full of iron, which is why I eat it

The food Nazi’s would have her on the pyramid diet, and her blood sugar would be off the charts. As far as type 2 diabetes goes, the biggest problem with eating a cheese burger is the bun. Eat away.

Would you rather enjoy a nice juciy cheesburger now? (preferably a double with bacon) or wheeze a few extra moments into your resperator 20 years from now?

I am not saying wolf down fatburgers until you die 20 years sooner, but ENJOY LIFE and the occasionaly pleasure like this (everything in moderation! wasn’t that from the bible or james kirk or something?)

“Cheeseburgers, being mainly protein, don’t cause spikes in one’s blood-sugar.”

Well, a cheeseburger isn’t mainly protein. The meat and cheese are, but the bun is nothing but carbs, and most likely the high-glycemic white kind. The fries are even worse; potatoes spike the blood sugar.

But I’m just saying. It’s Paula’s right to eat whatever she wants, and like someone else said, maybe she wasn’t going to eat all of her plate. If we’re going to chase Paula Deen around with a camera at dinnertime, then turn one on that burger-scarfing wookie in the White House.

Where are these nazi’s when Moochelle is eating ribs, burgers, fries, and shakes? sheesh

I’m for honesty in food labeling so that those that want to eat healthy can make informed decisions. I’d like to see packaging that shows the trans fats by volume and not by serving as the manufacturers have found a way around that.

In an interview with ABC’s Brian Ross, the cheeseburger claimed that Paula wanted to bring a foot-long chili cheese dog onto their plate.

As I read this article it says this:

Paula Deen ATE some protein and LEFT the carbohydrates on her plate.

Interestingly, almost every comment following the ABC story is condemning the media for watching what Paula Deen eats. But we are gonna have health nuts here, on FR, posting about french fries and cheeseburgers.

There was a story back in October where Paula Deen said Mrs. O “ate more than anyone who’d ever been on her show”. They are now in the process of destroying her for being so audacious.

“Not only that but a cheeseburger has protein as well as carbs.”

...the only carbs in a cheesburger are in the bun. It’s the bun, the fries, the carbs that’s causing Diabetes and obesity. Not meat. Not cheese. Not butter.

We replace those high glycemic buns with Thomas’ light multi grain English muffins. You never miss the crap bun and the muffin doesn’t get soggy. Plus you get added fiber which helps to stabilize blood sugar.

You know, I’m not a huge fan of Paula’s because she’s a little over the top for me but this story is infuriating. I’m gonna buy some of her books and enjoy. (I have over 200 cookbooks!) Can you recommend one?

but apparently, Deen hasn’t apparently changed all that much.

Apparently, the writers at ABC News apparently don't use editors or proofreaders. Apparently.

A while back, the Weekly Standard ran a piece that documented how American "obesity" is being used to replace "global warming/climate change" by the Left. They're starting with "the epidemic of childhood obesity". This is why Michelle is showing up on episodes of "icarly" and "The Suite life" and doing interstitial short promos for her "Lets Move Project".

The myth of America's childhood obesity crisis is in full swing and when you hear those words, take note that what follows is propaganda for the government to take control of corporate and individual rights.

I’m going into NYC tonight where there has been a renaissance of burger eating! There’s a gourmet burger joint on every corner. I’m gonna eat one tonight and toast Paula!

The libs are politicizing food for one reason - you can control the population through it. 20 years from now we’ll probably be on the road to famine...

What a great song - a little OT but 30 years ago my late brother and I ran a commercial fishing boat in Southeast Alaska and usually after a week of fish, rice and oreos we would plug in that Jimmy Buffet tape and head for a small village called Pelican for a cheeseburger in paradise. Thanks.
