As a Type 2 diabetic, who was diagnosed after years of pre-diabetes, Shepherd says diet and exercise has changed her life and appearance and it can do the same for you, too.
“I was on three differnet medications for my diabetes now I’m on none. I have Type 2 diabetes so it’s controlled through diet and exercise which is why for Type 2 diabetes diet and exercise is so important. We used to call it the sugar. That’s what Black people call it. There’s no urgency to change anything. I was so used to people in my family being blind or not having a foot and eating the same way. Diabetes is the fourth highest killer in the African-American and Latino community. We’ve got to do something different from what we’ve been doing, leaving our children with no parents.”
In “The View” news, Shepherd will be there today when the 83-year-old creator of “The View” Barbara Walters, announces her official retirement from broadcasting after a five decade career. Co-host Joy Behar will also leave “The View” after this season.
“The two Black women are staying,” Shepherd says of her and co-host Whoopi Goldberg. “Usually we get killed off!”
