If you read my Why Did I Go Carnivore post, I mentioned that my blood pressure put me in the early stages of hypertension and I wanted to nip that in the bud while I still could — with just diet and exercise — without taking any drugs. I also mentioned that I’m terrified of my blood pressure cuff and absolutely HATE to have my blood pressure taken. I watched a video by Dr. Ken Berry that explained how I should prepare myself to have my blood pressure taken and it helped … a lot. I also found out that I should have both feet on the floor and left arm at the same height as my heart. That video is great for when you go to the doctor’s office — watch it and see if your blood pressure won’t improve the next time you take it by following what he’s talking about.
Blood pressure numbers — here they are folks! If this doesn’t make you want to at least find out more about the Carnivore Diet, I don’t know what will!!
Blood pressure taken at the start of Carnivore Challenge: 140/96
Blood pressure taken on day 35 of the Carnivore Challenge: 112/77
I’m not lying!!! This is not made up … I used the same blood pressure monitor to take both the before and all three after blood pressure readings.
After taking my blood pressure 3 times:
I just picked the measurement in the middle.
How cool is that!! Just 30 days into eating a true carnivore diet and my blood pressure has already returned to within the normal range. I’ll keep checking my blood pressure and keep posting my results.
