Paula Deen Caught Eating a Cheeseburger | ABC News Blogs – Yahoo! News.
Good on you Paula Deen!
I have been diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes for over 15 years now. Occasionally, a cheese burger and fries ARE allowed on a diabetic diet. It all depends on how many grams of carbohydrates are in the meal.
Carbs from fresh veggies don’t count. That bun had a total of 30 grams of carbs. Those fries, if a small fry, had between 15 and 20. Now my diabetic dietician and my diabetic educator allow for 45 grams of carbs per meal.
The press is villifying this woman over 5 damned carbs! Come on.
Until a person has to follow a diabetic diet or until they are a health care professional involved in the immediate care of diabetics, they do not have the right to judge anyone.
Lay off the woman people!
