Re: Anyone, after HBP diagnosis and lifestyle change, eliminate or drastically reduce

Beerzoids,

That's great information from which other people can draw inspiration!

If you don't mind my asking, what is your weight in relation to the optimum and what was it before you achieved these results. Also, do you include any exercise regimen?

I've significantly altered my diet, probably not as strict as the DASH, but sub 2,000 calories per day.

I hear you about the "old ways". I live in LA where the fast food isn't nearly as tempting (at least for me) as in my previous home, Chicago. A good Italian beef and sausage sandwich or Lou Malnati's pizza would put me in jeopardy!
