I don’t think that I’ve ever read a diet book all the way through before this one. They usually are aggressively marketing a plan that doesn’t do a single thing for me and I bought this planning to just skim through it. However, I found this book to be brilliant – an absolute gem. Perhaps it’s just the right book at the right time for me, yet I really believe it will resonate with many other readers as well. It’s clearly written, well written, well researched and has a nice amount of classic Sherri Shepherd humor – but that in no way detracts from the serious message of the book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is even curious about insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes. I’m so pleased I found it.

I admire this book for three reasons. First, Sherri is honest about her weight and health prior to her wake-up call. Second, she worked closely with health professionals to take control of her weight and diabetes. And third, the book contains a realistic, healthy plan that can work for everyone: Read my full review: http://www.examiner.com/article/lose-weight-and-prevent-diabetes-with-the-view-sherri-shepherd-s-plan-d
I bought this book because I think Sherri Shepherd is hilarious. As a bonus, I learned a lot about a disease that has my name written all over it. (I still fall into the “even if you don’t have it” category, and this is the first information that has motivated me to ward off diabetes, rather than assuming that I’ll get it eventually.) Ms. Shepherd’s advice is practical, and the foods and exercises she touts are basic and fun. (No shameless plugs for foods or gyms or exercise equipment here.) In fact, as much as I love cookbooks, I wasn’t even disappointed that the only “recipe” section was basically a weeklong food and exercise diary. The book is mostly a quick read, with some very user-friendly health science thrown in. Ms. Shepherd has made it to my list of people I’d most like to invite to dinner, with a family hike to follow.
