Before being diagnosed with MS, Rick never really thought much about the important role diet and exercise play in keeping your body and mind healthy. Since his diagnosis, he's lost weight, and worked with his doctor to find a diet and exercise plan that works for him. He strives to do something physically active every day, whether it's doing cardio workouts, lifting weights, or just going for a walk. To Rick, living well with multiple sclerosis means thinking about the big picture and focusing on total mind and body wellness. To him, fitness is just one part of the puzzle, but he thinks you should also remember that diet and a positive attitude can help keep you mentally and physically healthy.
