Very exciting news on the status of my HBP! On day 4 I reduced my lisinopril by half (4/24 BP=114/78). Today (4/28) my BP is 98/70.I guess now I need to look at stopping it completely.
In everything I've read in the McD books and online told me this change could happen quite rapidly. This really is amazing. Nothing I have tried before ever worked to lower my BP let alone happen this quickly!

I am concerned about risk of hypotension (and the risk for falling) and suggest you check with your MD about the need for the med.
Please keep us posted!

I was doing atkins but my blood pressure went up with it. Members on their forum get nasty when you dare say that that is happening and they tell you it isn't possible. I was shocked at how they act.

Things have been going very well for me... today is my first day completely off my BP medication, I went on vacation for a week and still lost 1.3lb without too much trouble finding McD friendly food, and I'm feeling in control and enjoying life!!!
As much work as this is sometimes (thinking about and preparing food) I'm getting more confident in my food choices (and speaking to those who might not agree) and learning to prepare food in a way that takes up less of my time. Right now I'm sticking with the MWL program, and it doesn't seem confining to me. Looking forward to mixing in some healthy bread/pasta/flour items but I see such awsome results so far...so I can wait.
