This morning about 15 minutes after I finished breakfast I felt my blood pressure and pulse rise. I checked both and BP was 178/91 and my heart rate was 104. That is VERY abnormal for me. My blood pressure runs around 140/82 and my resting heart rate is between 70 and 80. Not great number, I know, but far from what I got this morning.
Breakfast was 3 oz shredded chicken, 3 eggs and 1/2 cup cottage cheese. I'm wondering if it was a reaction to the cottage cheese. This is pretty much the first dairy I've eaten since I started the Leptin Reset. I am prone to food reactions, so uncovering a reaction to dairy would not be unusual for me.
I took 2 cloves of garlic to bring my blood pressure down. It was, of course, effective.
I will keep watching my BP and take garlic regularly to keep it down, if I need to. I think I'll stay away from dairy for a few weeks and then try again. If it happens after eating dairy again, then I'll have my explanation.
