Overview

"Diabetes could have killed me. Instead, it saved my life."
—Sherri Shepherd

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

For years, View co-host Sherri Shepherd had been told that she was pre-diabetic and for years, she ignored the warnings. Then the inevitable happened. With the diagnosis of full-blown Type B Diabetes, she realized fully for the first time that the disease that took her mother could kill her. In Plan B, Shepherd draws on medical expertise and her experiences to explain the measures that she took—and should have taken before matters grew so potentially grave. (P.S. We Americans need this life-saving tutorial: More than 25 million of us are diabetic and over 75 million men, women, and children are pre-diabetic.)

    This book offers a well laid out plan for getting healthy when life gets in the way.

Thank you Sherri for sharing your experience and opening your heart to us. With this book I feel like I can get healthy before I get the big D.

    As a diabetic, I have watched what I ate for the better part of my life. But, that didn't stop the pounds from packing on. What this book is offering me is hope on how to change all of that from somebody who has lived though it. With this book, which I can honestly say is very heart tugging, Sherri doesn't tell you just how to change you life, she helps you understand the why you should do it. Kudos!

    Not Bad

    The book wasn't bad. But her plan D was what diabetics have been told from day one. I thought I would read a different approach.

    This book is highly recommended for all diabetics. A true wake up caller to those ignoring the symptoms.

    I am learning a lot from this book about my responsibility in taking care of me. It has been a wake up call for me and I am finding it one of the tools I needed to get me on track.

    Good common sense approach! Sometimes I could tell what Sherri wrote and what the co-author wrote, but none the less, it has been an interesting book so far.

    I thought she followed Rocco's diet

    On The View this week Sherri looked amazing and even her husband stood up to show off his 40-lb weight loss. But they said it was thanks to following Rocco's Pound A Day plan. Plus Rocco delivered their food, not a bad perk either. Maybe its the same plan. I just want to know because it obviously worked and even Whoopi is trying it.

    great book...teaches without preaching

    Loved this book. easy to understand, very informative. She wrote in way that made me want to keep on reading. I learned about 5 years ago that i was diabetic and did nothing to follow the Dr directions...am only now learning that i need to do so, and learning step by step what i need to do. This book helped convince me that it is all in my hands.

    While I love Sherri Shepherd, I found this book to be useless in my new struggles with diabetes. It did not contain any helpful info for me, mostly history of her and her family's history.
