Paula Dean Has Diabetes

Paula Deen just recently came out and admitted to having Type 2 diabetes for the past 3 years. Which probably does not come as a big shock to a lot of people. I hope she gets well.

The shocking thing though is:

She has stated she will not change her diet.

She is now the spokesperson for a diabetes pill.

People (including herself) keep thinking its the high fat content of her diet, and not the high sugar and processed carb content of her diet. She recently made a dish where she used ingredients with lower calories and different fat sources. Too much fat and the wrong kinds of fat is bad but what about lower glycemic index, less sugar, and less processed?

She did however say she is going to drink less sweet tea. But it bothers me that high fat is at the forefront of this argument as opposed to high sugar.
