Your blood pressure is great! Many millions would envy you. If you want a goal, try through exercise and good nutrition to achieve 115/75. I was 110/60 for 50 years and then the fat rolled it.
BP is not a catch-all metric of health.
For instance, I know that your BP is fine but I ALSO know that you are not healthy.
Yes. Because you eat sugar, HFCS, honey, nectar, juice, molasses, maple syrup and/or white flour products (most breads, crackers and pastas).
Because you overconsume fructose, you are prediabetic, pre-cardiovascular disease, pre or not present IBS, acne or eating disorder.
A good BP only matters to which it matters.
That's pretty good.
As you get older, you have to watch out for:
o Eating when you're not hungry. Yeah, don't do that
o Not getting any exercise. This one's my bane. I should go for a ten minute walk after every meal, and I don't do it.
o Candy, cakes, doughnuts, soda. Don't do those.
It's ok. The best way to prevent high blood pressure is to eat whole foods, watch sodium intake, keep withing weight range according to a BMI chart, exersize for about an hour each day, and it can be anything, swimming, walking your dog, bike ride, gardening...yup, an hour a day.
You are well chilled it is excellent.
you are fairly normal, the 2nd number 80 is the one to be concerned about...70 is ideal, 80 is some concern , 89 is borderline HBP, 90 + is higher than it should be, and you need to see a doctor......tho you need to educate yourself on which food to avoid for optimum heath.....first thing you should have done, is check your diet, it is the why behind the way you feel....I'm friends with 3 CERTIFIED NUTRITIONISTS, and they reco, to the people who ask them, about what foods to eat; to avoid commercial eggs- cage free are fine, avoid refined oils, avoid flour products, avoid sugar, and avoid milk....like half the grocery store....quite a challenge to young folk, many of whom are victims of advertising on tv, they eat the garbage that generates profits, not health and wonder why they can't function properly.....nobody taught them, we were born into commerce, and profits rule, not health...I'll bet you never knew that the AMA's bylaws state their job is to protect doctors profits....it may not seem like much, but in the big scheme of things, it means a lot.......RECENTLY, I stopped eating bread, and I was surprised by 2 things that I experienced, better healthier BM's, and a clearer thinking head....expected neither one, but both were quite noticeable......best wishes....
Just taking a walk everyday will help ................
You are wise to want to improve your health. It's a little bit high. Eating well (healthy whole foods in small amounts per meal) and exercising and drinking good water (only) should really fix that fast. =)
However, I would start exercising. At 36, no big deal, but wait until you get
to be 50, over even before. The less in shape you are, the more health problems
you will have,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,or
If you have health problems later in life, but you are fit, you will be able to endure
whatever grief you experience.
Get at it and good luck
