I have cut sugar out of my diet. I am doing strength training 2x/week and cardio 3x/week. I am slowly losing weight. I don’t eat meat except 1x or 2x/month. I am 5′1″ and weigh 162lbs. How soon before my blood pressure will return to normal if I continue this regime?
Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your health. A regular exercise program will significantly lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke and cancer. Life style changes take about three months to become effective. They may not bring your blood pressure back down to normal. Even thin, vegetarian, marathon runners can develop high blood pressure.
