    Should Paula Deen become the new face of Paleo/Primal eating?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Paula's diet is totally Paleo, with the exception of a few vices in it (sugar and flour.)

    With her recent "outing" as a diabetic, many people are quick to point the finger at her abnormal fascination with butter-fried in butter dipped in butter, covered in melted butter.

    Let's turn Paula Deen around and teach her the error of her ways (mostly her refined carb intake) and get her over on our side. She'll still have her show, except now she can cook Paleo-friendly, low-carb, high-fat meals and bring Paleo/Primal to the public.

    No. She's deceived people to compromise their health for her financial gain. She shouldn't be the "face" of anything.

    Do you think she deliberately deceived people or was all that sugar & flour typical CW ignorance? I know next to nothing about the woman (don't have a TV) but agree if someone that well known were she to turn her diabetes around with paleo it would be amazing.

    Flour is made from grains, which are the biggest vice for Paleos. And sugar isn't so good either. How is she different from CW advocates?

    You live by the wheat you die by the wheat...either you drop grains and refined foods or face the consequences.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    I don't see her diet as anywhere near paleo or primal. Yes, she loves bacon, butter, and meat, as many of us do, but she also uses lots of sugar, grains, and bad cooking oils in her recipes. Now, I would love it if she went primal, got her health in order, and became a poster child for what good, whole, healthy foods can do for you even when they're tasty and full of natural fats, red meats, etc. It doesn't matter to me what she has been or what she is now. If she could get her act together, then I'd be happy for her and glad to have someone with a big spotlight on her show the advantages of healthy food.

    We have a poster chef - Michael Symon. I think he only uses grains when he has little choice, most of his Iron Chef dishes have none.

    You think she was diabetic but kept cooking with all of that sugar and high GI food because she didn't know it was bad?
