Hi all just to say I have been experimenting with cutting out caffeine. I don't eat chocolate anyway except one square of 85% cocoa solids in the morning but that was with an espresso. This is the recommended start to the day on the pioppi diet. However, since I've heard caffeine can accelerate heart rate I have given this up and begrudgingly frothy caramel cappuccinos. I can't look at costa anymore and their caps were my go to drink especially after a hospital and stress level higher than usual appointment when my blood sugar was low, Anyway, it's not all doom and gloom, because I have found another favourite drink in Pukka Teas....mmmm natural and refreshing....today I brought Pukka variety collection of Matcha and green tea, one has mixed berries in too. Although I miss coffeee it's great to be feeling healthy drinking matcha and green tea. If claims are right the green tea helps detox and burns calories, little woop anything that helps is a winner especially if it tastes good too.
So, what have you had to give up to reduce your blood pressure. Also, is there anything new you've tried? Research claims that lifestyle changes are highly effective in certain diseases and disorders. I'm certainly a fan of giving my lifestyle a shake up.
