The booklet will introduce you to four major diet plans: Swank, McDougall, Wahls, and Mediterranean. By comparing them, the booklet guides you through these various options and helps you learn to address your dietary needs.

This seven-night cruise features three days at sea, three exciting ports of call, and endless opportunities for fun, education, and inspiration. While the daily focus will be on helping you get into the habit of exercising, the cruise will also boost camaraderie, support, and help you get outside of your comfort zone. We will be exploring the eastern Caribbean on board Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas. The cruise boards from Miami on April 13, 2019, and will sail to Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, and Nassau, Bahamas. Along the way, we’ll have educational and motivational programming that will help you take home something better than souvenirs – new strategies for living better with MS.
