I have a question for you all about weight gain and blood pressure. I have gained about 100 lbs in the last 5 years, I watch my diet pretty well, try not to eat out, do my cardio and don’t take medications or recreational drugs.
I am wondering if some of you gainers out there have encountered similar issues.
My morning readings are about 130 ish over 60, when it is it’s highest mid afternoon it sits around 160 over 50 which I find strange because the higher the systolic seems to be the lower the diastolic number ends up being.
I have heard that when you gain large amounts of body mass, blood pressure can average higher than usual and I was wondering how much weight any of you had gained sence you started training and if you did notice an increase in your average if you do check every so often
Obviously the peak of the season is a little higher because of water bloat, estrogen ect… I am trying to get this issue well under control before it’s time to gear up for the next season. I do take arimadex, ACV 2 oz a day, take hawthorne berry, watch my sodium, watch my diet fairly well as i said (except on bloated road trips), take magnesium, zinc, aspirin, vitamin e and have been considering celery extract and have recently started juicing large amounts of vegetables for their therapeutic value and besides that they are good for you and a pain to eat whole
Anyways, thank you so much for your time and consideration. If i can get this all figured out with my severe swings in numbers I am sure i will be able to help may others with the same issue
