Had a young woman in her 30’s today who lost from 160 to 135. This only took one month but the drastic change in her bp was the true desire here. After trying for years to do something for her blood pressure, she finally decided to get her BMI to 25.
In just 1 month she got there, and her bp went from 160/80 to 130/70. I tried to encourage her to lose more to a bmp of 18.5 to prevent any weight gain from bumping her bp back up but she declined as she wanted to go back to a normal eating habit but with a much smaller stomach due to the 5 bites. I always follow a patient’s wishes.
