Paula Deen knew it was time to shamelessly cash in on for a change.
Six months after announcing she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, the Food Network star revealed how she devised a slim-down strategy.
One that has helped her shed 30 pounds already, according to People.
"I do think differently [about food] now," Deen says. "I'm more aware."
So instead of regular meals with favorite "trigger" foods, the Southern chef has developed a newfound love for Greek salads and baked fish.
Her focus has paid off so far, with a slimmer frame and fatter bank account, thanks to the diabetes meds she's shilling for. Living the dream!
"It took me a couple of years to get to this point," says Deen, who faced harsh criticism when she finally announced her diagnosis in January.
"If you make a few small changes, they can add up to big results."
Results may include longer life span and/or total loss of scruples.
