Good for you! I've been on two blood pressure meds for several years and my BP was averaging 135/80 and sometimes higher. I went to doc on January and it was 110/75! The biggest change was my diet. I'd add the weight loss, but I lost weight before on WW and that didn't affect BP at the time. This WOE is for life.
Well, like I said we all have to choose what works for us. I had to have an angiogram a few years ago for a heart issue and my cardio said my arteries were "pristine" and I'll note my LDL was a bit high at that point, too. This probably means my LDL was mostly Pattern A which is the large fluffy type.
I'm NOT saying other ways of eating including vegetarianism is bad. Vegetables are great for you and I eat them, too.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
