At age 38, Judy Weichman was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She then joined a gym which allowed her to find her love of lifting and to regress her disease.

In addition to joining the gym she did a complete diet overhaul, which meant cutting out sugar and carbs, and adding in healthy whole foods such as chicken, zucchini bran muffins, homemade protein cookies, and polyunsaturated fats like sunflower-seed oil. Replacing processed carbs and sugar with cleaner alternatives helped reduce the inflammation in her body. Within a few months she started to notice a decrease in her symptoms.
