High Blood Pressure (hypertension) Signs, Causes, Diet, And Treatment

What is high blood pressure? What is normal blood pressure? High blood pressure (hypertension) is defined as high pressure (tension) in the arteries, which are the vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Blood pressure readings are given as two numbers: The systolic blood pressure (the top number) equals the pressure in the arteries as the heart contracts. The diastolic pressure (the bottom number) is the pressure in the arteries as the heart relaxes. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80. In 2017, the American College of Cardiology released new guidelines for high blood pressure. Blood pressure between 120/80 and 129/80 is elevated blood pressure, and a blood pressure of 130/80 or above is considered high. Complications of high blood pressure include heart disease, kidney (renal) disease, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis), eye damage, and stroke (brain damage). Hypertension is a major public health problem. With the new guidelines for defining high blood presure, The American Heart Association estimates high blood pressure affects nearly half of all adults (46%) in the United States.

    Hello there Keto community, I have been interested in the keto diet since I first heard about it in my health class a couple months ago but am lost on how to start off. I know that the first two weeks or so will be hard because of the sugar withdrawal. I've been looking at websites to try and figure out how many grams of protein, carbs, and fats I need but there is a variety of different answers. Any websites you can recommend?
    Anything helps honestly! Thanks in advance!

    First thing you want to do is read Keto in a nutshell.
    Next and most importantly IMO, you want to read The FAQ and do so thuroughly. I reread it often and I'm two months in.
    To start, the first thing you want to do is punch in your info in the Keto Calculator. It's very simple and will tell you your macros.
    Check out /r/ketorecipes and download MyFitnessPal App for your phone. Log everything you eat and use it look up food before you munch on it.
    And honestly, the basic idea is to eat under 50g carbs ..20g or lower is recommended. Eat your protein goal so you don't loose lean body mass. Eat enough fat to keep you satiated. Doing this your body will enter ketosis and bein to burn fat instead of carbs. If you eat too many calories, you will not loose weight, but keto tricks your body into eating much less.
    Feel free to ask anything you need and good luck. Keto is the shit.
