Keto and high blood pressure?
I don’t personally suffer with this so I wanted to share a resource that may help. That being said, I personally think this is a great diet for someone with high blood pressure as long as you are being monitored by your doctor! I have family members currently on keto who have lowered their BP.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Key Takeaways: The Atkins diet, which contains 50 or fewer grams of carbohydrates per day, was by the most effective diet in lowering blood pressure over a year. The Ornish diet, which has only 10% or fewer calories from fats, was the least effective in decreasing blood pressure.
Recommendations: If you are interested in lowering blood pressure, a diet with 50 or fewer grams of carbohydrates per day might be an effective method. Consult with your doctor and dietitian to see if it’s a suitable choice based on your medical history.
