Sherri Shepherd Tackles Diabetes and Weight Loss in New Book

Comedienne Sherri Shepherd finds plenty to laugh about on The View, but one thing she's deadly serious about is diabetes. In her new book, Plan D: How to Lose Weight and Beat Diabetes (Even if You Don't Have It), Shepherd details her three-step plan for conquering the disease that ultmately claimed her mother's life.

Shepherd also details her personal struggles with the disease—which led her to lose weight and focus on her health—in the book. Kudos to Shepherd for sheddling light on this dangerous, but manageable disease.
