Elmgrows's Journal, 23 April 2012

So after being unable to lose weight over the last several months even though my eating habits (calorie and timing wise) hadn't really changed and my activity levels had increased, I went in to see my doctor. My blood pressure is higher than normal. I normally sit at 117-120/ 70-76. It is has been hover around 130-140/ 78-88. To help with the BP i am on a low dose medication now. To help with the stalling wight loss my doctor has recommended a non animal based protein diet, or in layman's terms, a vegan diet. Yesterday I stocked up on lentils, quinoa, tempeh, seitan, tofu and hummus. I was already well stocked with various beans.
Now I just need to find recipes and start experimenting.
