How you can have a bod like a celeb.
Paula Deen is shaping up and slimming down.

The Food Network chef, who revealed earlier this year that she’s suffering from Type 2 diabetes, tells People magazine that she’s lost 30 pounds in six months — and is still counting.

“I do think differently now,” Deen says. “I’m more aware.”

How did the Southern gal do it?

The 65-year-old traded in the fatty dishes that made her famous for Greek salads and baked fish.

“It took me a couple of years to get to this point. If you make a few small changes, they can add up to big results,” she says.

Deen went public with her diabetes struggle in January of this year, but endured a public backlash when it was revealed that she’d been diagnosed with the disease three years earlier.
