The following is a chart showing my annual average Blood Pressure from 1998 through 2009, with the top heading starting at the Diastolic level of 59, the chart beginning in 1998 and ending in 2009.
To help to read the chart, the average Diastolic reading for all of 1998 was 97. For 1999, the average Diastolic Blood Pressure was 92. For 2008, the average Diastolic was 72.
I started dieting in the middle of 2004, without knowing anything about diet. It evolved into a low calorie, frequent feeding, high fiber, small meal diet targeting Insulin Resistance in December 2004.
The effects of diet on my average Blood Pressure are obvious, by looking at the dip in average Diastolic Blood Pressure starting in 2004, and going lower each and every following year, until it leveled out in 2007.
