I began this diet 2 weeks ago and I have had high blood pressure since I was about 20. I went through all kinds of tests because doctors and specialists were convinced there was something massively wrong with me as I weighed 115 lbs, was a vegetarian, and had blood pressure so bad I was vomiting....they couldn't believe I had high blood pressure sorbet thought something was failing internally
Nope, no reason...just genetic. Since then, I've gotten it down with cardio but when I don't have time for cardio, like recently, it goes up again. I have been able to stop taking 2 of the strongest meds I've always taken but I was still having to take diuretics to get rid of the salt in my body to lower my blood pressure as it has NEVER been normal for decades.
But I'll get to all that.
Because you'll ALSO lose weight with this. And that ALSO lowers it more...you'll have great energy and never be hungry as well.
So is it another fad? Actually the principles of this, similar to the Flat Belly Diet, are some of the most proven philosophies and largest studies of obesity that make it up in recent years. Yes, it's in medical materials rather than magazines.
However news magazines like it too.
It was just rated the #1 healthiest diet in US News and World Report.
Over ALL diets...Jenni Craig, Nutrisystem, anything.
This was the diet used by the USDA for its health guidelines called "MY PLATE" which updated the food pyramid.Read more ›
