Sherri’s recent trip down the runway has earned her even more attention, with many sharing the photos and leaving encouraging messages for her to continue along the weight-loss journey.

Sherri isn’t the only star to drop pounds by cutting out sugar. A number of other celebrities have adapted similar diets, including Kourtney Kardashian who has opened up on her website about why she decided to cut out all refined sugars.

“First, sugar is addictive and I notice that after I eat it, I need it,” she wrote. “Sugar doesn’t sustain you when you actually need energy, like for a workout. Also, when I eat sugar, I find that more cellulite appears. I don’t drink soda — ever! I drink a ton of water during the day and I also drink a glass of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar twice a day (in the morning and at night).”
