Dr. Julian Whitaker unleashes a new weapon in the war against hypertension: a simple yet dramatically effective plan to help you make the right healthy choices to beat the silent killer.
I was at the library and I saw this book I was not looking for it. March 8 2003 read it and on March 9 went on the plan. Within three months I was down to 12.5 mg of atenolol. BP hovering around 120 over 75. I lost 25 pounds from 185 to 160 in four months. Waste went from 34 to 32. I weigh five pounds lighter than when I graduated HS. I was not expecting this but it was a great bi-product of the plan.
Today January 20, 2004 almost eleven months later I have maintained the same body weight 160. I am off all medicine for three weeks and my Blood Pressure is at 120 over 78. If it goes back up I will go back to the 12.5 mg but my Physician is amazed.
My Cholesterol was 212 with Triglycerides of 370 in July. At the end of December cholesterol was down to 173 and trig now 125. My LDL has stayed about the same at 110 which isn't to bad. My HDL is still low at 29. Not sure what I will do about that since I continue to swim 5 times a week anywhere from 6 to 10 miles per week. HDL is a much harder thing to move unfortunately and in my case it is familial as my father still alive at 78 has never been able to get his above 30 (tracked since 1972). He had six bypasses at 62 which is what I hope to avoid.
No matter this plan has given me great hope that I can avoid or at least limit the drugs. I feel great physically and I feel good about myself having lost the weight. It can be a tough plan to be on but I consider it to be my lifestyle now. One can still eat an awful lot of good food you just have to know what your eating and really avoid the salt and fat.
I think Dr Whitaker should market it as a diet plan as well because from what I can see the diet plans out there nobody can stick to long term. More people should know about this and Doctors should be promoting it. Thank you Dr Whitaker!
