"Diabetes could have killed me. Instead, it saved my
The day that actress, comedian, and cohost of The View Sherri
Shepherd was diagnosed with the Big D--type 2 diabetes--she didn't
see it coming. But she should have. Sherri had spent years battling
excess weight, ignoring the warning that she was prediabetic,
avoiding doctors, and denying some very clear signs that a diabetes
diagnosis was imminent. Even watching the disease take her mother's
life at the age of forty-one didn't sound the alarm for Sherri. But
when D Day came, she had a diagnosis in hand and a child of her
own. Sherri knew she needed to take a cold, hard look at the way
she was living and make a choice: she could completely overhaul her
life and reevaluate her relationship to food and exercise, or
continue on a path that could leave her son growing up without his
mother. The choice was easy. Putting the choice into action was a
little more difficult.
If you're one of the 100 million Americans diagnosed with
prediabetes or diabetes each year, or one of the 130 million people
who are overweight and at risk but don't know where to start, Plan
D can provide life- changing results. Here, Sherri Shepherd breaks
down the basics of the science of diabetes, explains how reversing
your insulin resistance (the cause of type 2 diabetes) is the key,
and offers support, humor, and the action plan you need to get
results. With this medically supported plan, Sherri was able to
lose forty pounds and keep it off. Through three key simple but
effective strategies centered on diet, exercise, and taking control
of the emotions that lead to poor food choices, Sherri offers
readers a way to lose weight and control diabetes without feeling
deprived, or chained to a strict, lifeless way of living. Plan D is
flexible, sensible, and straight-forward, and it works wherever you
are on the spectrum--whether you're struggling to lose weight, are
in the danger zone of prediabetes and looking to turn things
around, or have already been diagnosed with diabetes.
Plan D will give you the facts you need to start changing your
habits and your health now. With the help of her doctor, a leading
endocrinologist, and a support group of family and close friends,
Sherri changed her life. With Plan D, you can too.
