Tuayna,

You're on the right path. Just take it one day at a time, and keep a steady pace. It'll all work out in the end. You just have to be diligent!!!

Bub,

Welcome!!!

I'm sorry that you have heart disease, but it opened the door for you to learn how to cook from scratch, which is more healthy than anything else. I thank you for the USDA database. I need desperately to get my potassium up. I take potassium medication and eat food with potassium, but the report at the end of the day, still says that I didn't get enough. I'll be mentioning that to my dr. on the 7th.

Be blessed,

I am new to this team. As many have noted, food processors are not required to post potassium levels, a problem I also share. I have heart disease, and I have to keep my blood pressure pretty low because of the combination of meds I take. I do a lot more cooking from scratch than I did before my problems, more so because I can get the amount of nutrients in the raw ingredients for many from the USDA database. I have a small database of these foods, for which USDA uses a standard measurement of 100 grams. The highest amounts of potassium per the standard measurement that I use include: potatoes, lima beans, mushrooms, squash, and meats. Blueberries are by far the lowest, then a number of raw vegetables: (eggplant, cucumbers, onions, peppers), and other fruits (raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes). The USDA database is available at http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/search/list.

A huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it and realizing it's not going to happen overnight.

emoticon weight lost will certainly help in high blood pressure, I am now down to one small pill and I am maintaining a normal reading. I also have a cup of hibisus tea in the afternoons.

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2015 weight goals of 50 pounds.

I just went to the Dr. a couple of weeks ago and was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was surprised since I am only 27. I hadn't been to the Dr. in a couple of years when I went in for my appointment so I'm sure my blood pressure was higher a year ago since I've lost 35 lbs in the last year. I have made a lot of lifestyle changes in the last year such as going vegetarian, doing some light exercise, doing meditation and yoga several times a week and eating fewer processed foods. I can only imagine what my blood pressure must have been last year before I made these changes :(

I'm hoping I can get some new ideas for lifestyle changes I can make to bring my blood pressure back to a healthier range and to find some support since these changes can be difficult to incorporate into our lives at times.
