I'd also like there to be something for those of us with Hypotension (low blood pressure) to hold on to. People always focus on Hypertension (probably because it's more common) but you CAN die if your blood pressure falls too low. So here is the catch-22, to lose weight you need to exercise more (because there's only so many calories you can cut before it's considered starvation) but more exercise means lower blood pressure and that can kill you if like me a "normal reading" is 90/60... my health care professional's advice? "You're not that fat (at 1.57m and 88kg!) and all your readings are within the normal range so just accept yourself."
Well, you just gotta love Africa.
