Diabetes, shmeeties, we guess.

Celeb chef/diabetic Paula Deen -- in the line of media fire for her controversial decision to endorse a diabetes drug from Novo Nordisk called Victoza -- threw caution to the wind on a Caribbean cruise this week, as she dove into a juicy cheeseburger.

Deen, 65, chose the high-calorie meal despite a number of healthier options on her annual Party At Sea cruise on the vessel, Celebrity Eclipse.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the fury over Deen -- who we recently learned is a type 2 Diabetic -- endorsing the drug has been based on her fat-laden Southern recipes, which are usually a far cry from healthy.

After her fellow celeb chef Anthony Bourdain dubbed Deen "the most dangerous person in America," Deen struck back on the boat, telling an off-color joke aimed at the Travel Channel personality.

She said Bourdain once dined on the “unwashed anuses of wildebeests," following up with the punch line, “You are what you eat!” (We guess that makes her a greasy cheeseburger.)
