Congratulations to your husband and to you. In general, men lose weight more easily than women. Our bodies are designed to hold onto weight to protect our reproductive organs. But we can lose weight and even if we don't we gain benefits from eating healthier. You have an added challenge with your M.S. and meds. I have similar problems. We just have to stay with it and good things will happen.

My husband and I are eating low-carb. Itís been great for his diabetes. Went from 300 to 100. Heís staying between 120-140. Heís losing weight. Iím not. I have MS and am on many meds. But, I can do better.

Welcome! There are different ways to fast. I do intermittent fasting. I fast daily and try to do all my eating within an 8-9 hour period. For me that is usually starting in late morning, say 10:30am or 11am. I don't always succeed but I don't eat after 8pm and often not after 7pm. The trackers can be gotten from you spark page where you edit it.
