Trainer Talk Tuesday

Paula Deen has had type-2 diabetes for 3 years and is just now coming out a spokesperson for Novo Nordisk, the pharmaceutical company that supplies her diabetes medication.

I watched this video on the Today show of Paula being interview by Al Roker and it made me furious! Watch!

Paula is quick to point to genetics and age as factors and stumbles all over herself to admit that consuming unhealthy food, like the food she cooks on her Food Network show, and being sedentary are the leading cause of type-2 diabetes.

Diabetes (the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S.) is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. While not everyone with type 2 diabetes is overweight, obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes of this form of diabetes. It is also responsible for nearly 95% of diabetes cases in the United States, according to the CDC.  - WebMD

In 2009, a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine which involved 23,000 people showed that by implementing 4 behaviors, stopping smoking, eating a healthy diet, exercising 3.5 hours per week and keeping your BMI under 30, 93% of all diabetic cases were eliminated….yes 93%!!!!!!  - Dr. Denise Chranowski Donohue, cofounder of 8 Weeks to Wellness   

It angers me but motivates me when I hear Paula say, "Like I told Oprah a few years ago, honey, I’m your cook, not your doctor. You are going to have to be responsible for yourself." Yet she is right. In a world full of convenience...quick meals out, driving everyhwere,just take your medication...we have to be knowledgeable and responsible for our choices! It often means choosing the less traveled and less convenient path, but it's the path to a healthier future for us and for our kids!
