    Default Blood Pressure DOWN

    One thing I didn't expect is my blood pressure to go from about 200/100 to about 110/60 doing this diet. I was struggling with the low fat diet and my blood pressure was out of control. A couple weeks on this diet and my blood pressure is way down. I don't need my pills!!! I'm thrilled.

    Thanks for sharing that, I am so excited !!That gives me so much hope !! Mine is running in the 145 to 165 over 89 to 99 and I started Atkins because of that and my BS being up to 126. This doctor gave me a month to get control or I am on meds. I bought a wrist cuff and take it twice a day.Fasting BS on day two is down from 126 to 109 so it is starting to work already. I cannot wait to see my blood pressure go down like yours did !!
    260.5 highest weight,
    scale was dead when I started it, just got it fixed , no starting weight this time
    Jan 29, 2016 / 243

    Goals I am shooting for , will put dates as I reach them !!

    Second goal weight 198
    third goal weight 175
    fourth goal weight150

    When the pain of changing is less painful than the pain of staying the same, then you will change your life !! Do or not do, there is no try !!
    Don't be stupid !!!

    Thread Resurrection.

    We have a cheap Walgreens wrist blood pressure monitor and the 1st week on my WOE my BP was 173/113. Scary!!

    I tried again when i just passed the 100lbs mark and my BP was 130/87. I switched to decaf after this point.

    07/13/14 i tried and my medium (4 tries) was 106/85. Yay

    Very nice NSV!

    Thanks. Lowering my BP was one of my main motivators when starting this WOE. Thank you Dr. Atkins.
