ST. LOUIS, Missouri – Amy Thomas was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 13 years ago.

“It’s just another component of my life to manage. It’s not defining who I am.”

She regularly gets blood drawn to measure the benefits of intermittent fasting.

In a study measuring the benefits of intermittent fasting, she eats non-starchy vegetables two days a week.    She eats what she wants the other five days.
