A weekly feast of celebrity diets with a side of fitness trends

Saving Paula

Looks like Ms. Paula D is going to have to climb her way out of that barrel of butter she is oh so famous for residing in. It’s going to be one slippery climb, but “y’all” know if anyone can do it, she certainly can!

Paula, if you’re reading this (because I am sure you “Googled” “Yahooed” yourself after seeing you were one of Yahoo’s top searches the other day)… here is what not to do now that you have diabetes.

1. Resist the urge to stuff your face full of processed junk such as cake, donuts, cookies, chips, crackers and anything deep fried…

2. Don’t make eating the focal point of social gathering (especially when fried chicken is the friend you really want to see). 

3.Butter can no longer be your BFF (this will be a hard break up for you, but I see Mr. Olive Oil over there giving you the suggestive nod).

4. Don’t forget to exercise. A taut tush is attainable! You may even wind up ditching Food Network for… Victoria Secret?

5. If you must drink alcohol, drink one glass with your evening, BALANCED meal… sorry, grilled butter with a side of butter is not the definition of a balanced meal.

6. You can still enjoy cooking but try and find substitutions for foods that are not diabetes friendly. Stewed collard greens instead of creamed spinach. Baked sweet potatoes instead of double deep fried, grits laden French fries.

7. Lastly, set a good example for others. We’re all watching you, and now that your secret is out, we expect you to partake in a healthier lifestyle. Don’t forget that being healthy is just as tasty as deep fried Twinkies.

    Did you know her son has a show where he takes his mom’s recipies and makes them “healthier”? He was on Rachael Ray the other day. I found that to be quite ironic!

  4. Haha…I love it and thanks for stopping by my page. =)

  5. Only after getting a deal with a drug company (that will pay her to keep taking it’s drug) did she come out. The only reason she waited is because she was worried about profits not her health.
    It is amazing that people will sacrifice their health to earn wealth but will give it all but will pay any amount to get it back after it’s too late.
