I am a 1 yr insulin dependant diabetic who struggles every day with diet. And not because I overeat. People don't realize how hard it is for a diabetic to balance weight loss with working out while eating enough food to prevent those very dangerous low blood sugar episodes. There is a very delicate balance. I find Paula Deen's take on all of this incredibly insulting, and its even more insulting that a drug company would pay her to endorse their product, when she doesnt even advocate a diabetic way of eating. She certainly doesnt speak for me, and I refuse to endorse whatever both groups are selling.
