Author, actress, and former host of The View, Sherri Shepherd, made a change in her lifestyle and showed off the results in an Instagram photo. Shepherd said she gave up sugar and now feels amazing.
An added bonus: Shepherd shed 25 pounds after 260 days of being sugar-free while following a keto eating plan.
She captioned the post, saying in part:
“Over 260 days #sugarfree … can’t begin to describe how #amazing I feel. Energy, clarity of thought and mind. Focused … patient w my son. Hearing from God a lot more clearly. It feels so good to feel #good. #keto #ketogenic”

Shepherd was quick to point out that this is not a diet but a lifestyle change and, after nearly a year, we certainly believe her.

You look AH-mazing!! Saw your story online and am so inspired! Well….I’m not being totally honest. You’ve inspired me to get healthy but…..removing sugar from the equation is a hard thing to do. No sugar & cream or ice cream or donuts. How in the world did YOU do it?
