Feb 24, 2012 Full story: CBS Atlanta 9

A month after being widely criticized for revealing she has diabetes - as well as a lucrative endorsement deal for a drug to treat it - Paula Deen says she's ready to show a lighter side to her famously fatty Southern-style cooking.

critcized by whom? the food police?
I liked watching her show, but I have the choice to make what she makes or not. I can make my own decisions.

If someone wants to criticize food and eating habits, then they should go to the buffet restaurants and see how much food people are stuffing in their faces and say something to them about it!. There is no human alive that needs as much food as some of those lard asses pile high on their plates and keep going back for more and more until they have to make the last moment count at the ice cream bar,with nuts and sprinkles ,of course. Intellegent people can make comfort dishes like Paula's and eat reasonable portions and stay out of trouble but it's nothing to compare to the gluttony displayed at the buffet hog troughs.

I don't frequent buffet but you seem to be an expert onthem and the eating habits of the customers. maybe your own for all I know.

What does you post have to do with Paula's fakery?

I don't think Paula Deen is a fake at all.Her cooking is just down home, watch your portions and you can eat anything. People are still healthier eating homemade that all the mixes and fast food out there,regardless of butter etc. Mixes are loaded with salt and preservatives, fast food is just plain bad for you. At least when you make it from scratch you know exactley what's in it. You know what you're feeding your family. Butter is better for you that any margerine out there.Diet/low fat foods have not proven to be of a help either, obesity is still higher than ever.

Not much on reading comprehension huh? It has more to do with how much you limit yourself to rather than how much you can inhale in one sitting. I grew up on bacon drippings,butter,lard,salted everything and it hasn't killed me yet because you learn your limits of what your body can stand for daily requirements,not how much your stomach can hold.
