At such a low fat percentage already, what else could one possibly do to get even leaner?
The story of Dr. Terry Wahls is a fascinating, deeply personal dive into the tie between nutrition and disease management. Dr. Wahls has struggled with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis for more than a decade. In the year 2000, Wahls was jogging every morning. Just three years later, she found herself confined to a wheelchair suffering from chronic pain and brain fog. Despite having access to the latest drugs from reputable establishments like the Cleveland Clinic, it wasn’t until a radical change in her diet that Dr. Wahls finally felt she was on the road to a form of recovery. Now, she can walk, work, and has since even completed an 18-miler bike race.
