Celebrity chef Paula Deen is getting attention Wednesday after dishing on how she shed 30 pounds in six months.
Deen, who is known for her rich and high-calorie recipes, revealed she has type 2 diabetes earlier this year.
Since the beginning of the year, the 65-year-old dropped around 30 pounds and transformed from a size 18 to a size 10, according to an article on Yahoo.com .
Her new figure appears on the July 9th issue of People magazine. See the cover!

The chef also reportedly used to skip breakfast, but now has a smoothie and pleases her sweet tooth with sugar-fee ice cream topped with fruit. Read more.
