what am i doing wrong? just got my physical for the hazmat team today and my bloodpressure was 162/84 or i have been primal for almost a year now and i feel great i've lost lots of weight and inches but my bp was up almost 30 points from last year. i'm only 26 years old they took an ecg and they said the results "looked like unconfirmed heart disease" in this last year i quit smoking for ten months but picked it back up not smoking that much maybe 3 to five smokes a day (quit today) where i used to smoke a pack and a half a day. well anyways they want me to see my regular physician to get medicine i'm really against taking medicine and i know i'm gonna be bombarded with low fat healthy whole grain shennanigans while getting lipitor shot at me from a machine gun. they only thing i can think of that i've done wrong is a drink a bit excessively during the week i have cut back to 2 -4 servings of wine but i drink pretty heavy on the weekend. if anybody here has any advice or good ideas i would be more than open to suggestions i don't wanna do drugs and i don't want to change my diet aside from the high blood pressure i feel awesome. this weekend i'm gonna go out and buy a monitioring device so i can check my bp regularly at home. I take multi-vitamins and fish oil and supplement with vitamin d when i can't get adequate sunlight. i haven't worked out the last couple weeks but i did have a pretty good schedule goin for a few months there. i don't really care about getting qualified for hazmat (they told me they wouldn't clear me until i was medicated) it's not important to me but i do wanna live long enough to see my daughter grow up. i just feel kinda frustrated like i had made all these positive things to try and be healthier and now they are saying i might have heart disease everybody i work with swears it's my diet and i just need to go low fat high carb to get healthy.
