hey ron DANIEL here and no M.S. of itself can not make you lose weight; however when I have aches or fatique or just hurt too much I can not cook. I usually grab something quick and rest. The poor diet of not eating enough or eating quick things like sandwich,chips a slice of cheese here and there can make you lose weight. So if you can try to stay on a healthy diet it will help in the long run.BLESS YOU LOTS bye for now.
