Thanks, Philo, for starting that great thread on blood pressure. I
started to add this to it, but though it might be too much of a
I've been walking 1-2 miles every morning and it has done wonders for my
eating habits. I don't eat or drink anything first but do drink a 1/2
liter of water during the walk. Then back home, I'm not hongry. How
much do you chubby non-athletes (like me) walk and what time of day?
Funny thing - I have never been an early riser until I started these
walks. Now that fall's here, I'm getting irritated because I have to
wait longer each day for the sun to come up. I don't mind walking in
the dark but don't want to get shot by mistake by a jealous husband....
About foods.... I would like to know what regular food types can help
keep the blood in good shape. I have always heard that peppers and
vinegar are good. Every day or so I have a glass of water with a couple
of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and some honey. Actually tastes
better to me than soda and I have cut way back on sugary & diet drinks,
although I still down a liter of Diet Shasta Cola about every day.
When they have one of those "lets interview 100 year olds" segments on
the (pardon the expression) "news," a lot of them say the take a
spoonful of Worcestershire sauce every day. Another one of my
favorites, so that's a good excuse to (when the lovely miseries ain't
looking) drink some right out of the bottle....
