Not only did Food Network star Paula Deen lose 40 pounds after being diagnosed last year with Type 2 diabetes, she also encouraged her husband and two sons to join in her weight-loss program.
Paula’s new mantra, "Moderation, moderation, moderation," is how she helped her family lose weight. Deen's husband, Michael Groover, shed 60 pounds, her oldest son, Jamie, got rid of an excess 45 pounds, while youngest son Bobby lost 33.
Deen is releasing a new cookbook, “The New Testament,” due this fall, which will include her newest go-to recipes and tips.
