About 8 or 9 years ago I decided to research the healthiest diet. I looked at Atkins, that was fun for awhile. The Paleo diet seemed to make sense. I liked the Mediteranian Diet; it also seemed reasonable. Eventually It came down to low fat plant based or Paleo. Dr. Esselstyn's evidence seemed the most convincing. I have followed it off and on since.
About 1 month ago I went to my Dr. and my blood pressure was 167/107. He gave me a prescription for meds.Yikes! Back on the healthy eating plan and yesterday my BP was 118/64. He asked if I wanted to consider going off the meds. He was quite surprised when I told him I never took them. What did you do? What did you eat? I also lost 17 lbs. It seems more than obvious which diet is the healthiest.

Hi Hanawaiman,

Congratulations on the great work !!

Sometimes success makes it easy to take time away from healthy eating. I have done it too.

Best regards, EngineerGuy
