For years I’ve wanted to bring stories of hope and inspiration to people like you who are committed to living happy and well with diabetes. But, I wanted it to be more than just a feel good show. I wanted to share real tips that you can apply to your life immediately so you feel healthier and more alive than you have in years.

Enter the Sugar Free Shawn TV Show. Each week I interview real people that either live well with diabetes or help us all live well with diabetes.

It’s fast. (Less than 8 minutes each.)

It’s fun. (Diabetes is serious, but how we approach it doesn’t have to be!)

It works. (Take action, see results!)
