Jack Osbourne - Jack Osbourne still lives normal life

Jack Osbourne refuses to let Multiple Sclerosis (MS) stop him from leading a normal life.

The 27-year-old reality TV star - who has 13-month-old daughter Pearl with wife Lisa Stelly - was diagnosed with the debilitating condition last year and is doing everything he can to stay fit and healthy, but doesn't want the disease to control everything he does.

He said: ''I give myself a daily injection of MS medication. I've also made a lifestyle change, minimising stress, exercising regularly.

''At the core, MS is inflammation, so I try not to eat foods that create it, like dairy and salt. I also cut processed food and sugar. It's living 101. I still go on hikes and do CrossFit workouts.

''Doctors tell me, 'You've got to stop this and that,' but I'm not going to craft my life according to the disease. I recently did two 12-hour adventure races, and I am planning to do a 24-hour one soon.''

Jack initially thought the disease ''was an automatic death sentence'' - insists he is feeling good but no longer takes things for granted.

The star - whose parents are Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne - explained to Us Weekly magazine: ''I appreciate things more. I don't know how long things will be as good as they are.

''It can become a progressive disease, though, and if it gets bad, the decline can be rapid. That's why I don't want to say my diagnosis was a good thing, but it has definitely put things into perspective.''
