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.

The two I read belong to my ex-wife, so I don’t have the title in front of me. But they would have been published back eight to ten years ago, if that helps.

Liberals are hypocrites. I dont care what the Obama’s eat, if Michelle wants to pig out, that’s fine, but she goes around promoting healthy eating and kids being forced to eat crappy health food when she goes around eating fatty foods shows what hypocrites the Obama’s are

People who take diabetes medication can have the occasional cheeseburger.

You're right so long as she maintains her blood glucose level in the normal range except for temporary spikes after meals. Most diabetics find it maddening to avoid all forbidden foods. I'm one of them.

Well, of course, it depends on where you have your burger. You can still get one for under $5. When you come back to NYC (if you do!), try Katzes’ corn beef (hot dogs, too) or 2nd Avenue Deli.

Good choice. My company’s got a couple of offices in and around Philly and I hear that’s a popular spot. Sometimes I get serious craving for a Fve Guys Burger and a mountain of fries...

I remember Katz's - way downtown, I think. Great big kosher pickles and kasha knishes. Jewish soul food. Okay, now I'm hungry. ;-)

Five Guys is very good. I’ve heard that the In-N-Out Burger in California is excellent.

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.

The crisis changes from time to time, but the "solution" is always the same.

“Carl’s Jr......F You, I’m Eating.”

That probably cracked me up more than anything in that movie.

I found the titles at wikipedia:

"In 1997, Deen self-published The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cooking and The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cooking 2. Both cookbooks were featured traditional Southern recipes ..."

Being a native Georgia Girl Peach, my ex loves Savannah and might have picked up those two because of her affinity with cooking, catering, Savannah, and good Georgia girlishness. My ex-wife's cookbook library is similar in size to what you mention!

Five Guys is quite good - especially their fries. There’s one at Reagan National Airport which I rarely miss while changing flights.

She’s a smoker, too—Probably fired one up right after the meal.

I wonder if she’ll be allowed (or will want to) return to the US at the end of the cruise.

Sheesh!

I am a well controlled type 2 diabetic with AC1 numbers under 6. At In-N-Out I order my cheese burger wrapped in lettuce and then endulge in a few of my husband’s fries. When at Red Hut (a favorite Lake Tahoe joint) I order the cheese burger without fries and eat most of the bun. It has to be more difficult for a well-known type 2 person such as Paula Deen to eat out. I have been served a cheeseburger with a heaping mound of French fries in a restaurant, but it did not mean that I ate the whole thing. I am constantly checking my numbers. Last night we ate at the Olive Garden. I used my meter to check my numbers. Since it was 81 I ordered a shrimp pasta dish. I ate a nice portion of salad without croutons and when the entree arrived I divided it into two portions. I ate the second portion today for lunch. By the way I love dessert, especially cheesecake or anything with chocolate. One my daughter-in-laws’ told me this Christmas she loved splitting dessert with me because I take one nice fork full and she eats the rest. I have learned to slow down and savor good food and not waste my carb ration on ho hum French fries, pizza, or coffee cake. By the way tonight we are eating homemade pizza.

Hi Miss M,

I was just commenting on the “TMZ posted a photo of Deen woolfing down a cheeseburger....... TMZ says Deen also had fries on her plate”.

I am a diabetic and it seems many people (including TMZ, the media in general) believe meat, fat, etc causes Type II when in fact higher amounts of carbs do.

I don’t care what she or others eat, it’s their choice.

I was going to say, if your diabetes is under control eating a cheeseburger should not cause any problem for you.

Cheerleaders, being mainly protein, don’t cause spikes in one’s blood-sugar. But it would probably raise my blood pressure. Of course it would kill me, well the wife would that is.

I say let her eat what she wants.

I’ve been making Marinara sauce all day and it smells great, but now I want to fire up the grill.

Why not? It’s not like she’s going to have a choice.

The government volunteering to pay your health bills does not obligate you in any way to alter your disgusting, unhealthy habits.

Besides, cheeseburgers are good for you. At least they ought to be:)

If you eat healthy, you don't actually live longer - it just feels that way.

A couple of days ago, several FReepers were on a thread talking up Culvers for a great burger. One just opened in my town and I think we are going to have to visit them tonight or tomorrow night.

GTH, Moosebutt and food Nazis.

More liberal nanny crap...I'm not even a regular watcher of Paula Deen but in my opinion she can eat any damn thing she wants. That prick Anthony Bourdain started this crap. I tuned his liberal ass out the episode he bad mouthed people who are against illegal immigration...he's an idiot.

The fat in meat can elevate blood sugars, its the carbs in the bread that is the bad part. I have had type 1 for 40 yrs. I eat whatever i want and people freak out if i eat a piece of candy- its all in the carb count to insulin ratio. people can get fat eating beans , corn, etc...

Did she eat the entire cheeseburger? Did she eat all the fries? Article doesn’t say. Was it beef or say a veggie patty? You can eat almost anything you want, but you need to control the portion size.

I’m a type 2 and occasionally eat a cheeseburger but it’s a treat and my blood sugar is under control. My HA1C is under 6.8 and has been for years (measure of the average of last 3 months blood sugar level). While I might want to wash the cheeseburger and fries down with a strawberry shake but that’s something I haven’t had in years.

On the HA1C test normal for a non diabetic is 4.5-6, 6-6.4 is considered prediabetes and under 7 is the target range for most diabetics. 9+ is out of control.

I wish a large team of news hounds would turn their cameras and reporting onto the personal lives of reporters (and their families) at NBCABCCBSCNNMSNBCFOX, etc.

These people need to be taken down some pegs in public opinion so people understand that total hypocrits and freaks of nature that are telling them what to think and do in life.

They are good. I use them for pulled pork and pulled beef sandwiches, too. English muffins, they aren’t just for breakfast anymore! lol

I figure if the industry will not give us a decent bun, then that is their loss. We don’t care for the heavy whole wheat taste of some buns and its hard to find one that doesn’t use high fructose corn syrup, bleached four or shortening/hydrogenated/hydrated/interesterified trans fats.

For hot dogs we use Flatout wraps or we cut the hot dog to fit the muffin.

I think if one fast food joint would use a healthy bun they would make an impact. jmo
