Someone’s turning over a new leaf: Food Network star and “DIVA”-betic, Paula Deen announced that she had Type 2 Diabetes in late January — something that was shocking only when it was simultaneously disclosed that she’d be the face of a diabetes drug.
Now the 65-year-old Deen is forgoing indulgent recipes like these to champion something else entirely: healthy eating. She’s telling the world that she’s dropped two pant sizes after adopting a more health-conscious diet that includes 30 minutes of walking a day and cutting her portions by half.
“I’ve dropped two pant sizes, and I feel great!” Deen told People magazine.
“We don’t own a scale in our house… Every six months I go for a physical and find out. Now it’s time to see the doctor. She’ll be so happy I’ve lost weight.”
What are you eating this summer? The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic talks to everyday people about their healthy appetites at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA.
