After a visit to the doctor this morning I found out that my blood pressure is a little high, 150/80. In high school my BP was always been a little high but I figured that was because I didn’t follow a diet. But now I have been eating pretty clean for awhile and BP is high. Doctor said to watch sodium intake. I am going to do some research on it, but I have no clue to how much sodium a person should eat. When I read how much sodium is in something, the number doesn’t mean anything to me because I don’t really know what is considered high or low.
What gets me is I follow a decent diet, high protein, 100 carbs a day, about 3000 calories ad day, ect. In good shape, 5’10", had body fat checked last week, 217 at 10.4%, it was done with calipers, the guy said give or take about 1-2% on accuracy, so at worst I am about 12% body fat. It is not adding up to why my blood pressure is high. I want to get it under control now, I definitely do not want to take medication for it later in life.
Right now I take Syntha 6 protein, Superpump250 or glass of coffee before workout, and Sizeon. Syntha 6 is high in sodium compared to other protein supplements. So any recommendations on better supplement choice would be nice. I am thinking about trying Designer Whey, it has a lot less carbs and sodium than syntha6.
So heres some information about the issue and myself, I am going to do research on my own, but I put this out here just to see what you all thought about it. Thanks
