Dr. Barry Sears, the creator of the Zone Diet and a world acclaimed expert on diet and inflammation joined "Mornings With Ken & Bernie" to discuss the revelation of Paula Deen's diabetes diagnosis.

Sears said Deen's diagnosis should not have come as that big a shock considering her family history and her recipes filled with deep-fried, buttery and sugar.  Dr. Sears feels it was clearly wrong of Deen to hide her diabetes for three years while continuing to promote fatty, salty, Southern comfort food.  He said either Deen was in deep denial or this smacks of misplaced brand protection.
