NEW YORK (WLNY) — Comedian and TV host Sherri Shepherd has made some lifesaving changes to her diet.

We’ve seen her on Dancing with the Stars and on her self-titled TV comedy show, Sherri, on the Lifetime Network.

She’s looking great these days — and she joined us on The Couch to tell us about her married life.

“This is the best I’ve felt in a long time,” she said. “It’s because I’ve been eating right, running around exercising. I think what you put in, I think it kind of manifests itself on the outward.”

In her new book, PLAN D: How to Lose Weight and Beat Diabetes (Even If You Don’t Have It), Sherri reveals how Type 2 diabetes -the same “rotten and dangerous” disease that killed her mother, forced her to radically change her ways and opened the door to abundant blessings.

In fact, Sherri is now living life better than ever and her one hour stand up special “Sherri Shepherd: It’s My Time to Talk” will premiere on EPIX on June 21.
