I'm stoked. I'm a 55 yo male 5'10" 220 lbs. Last year I did trt and during that time my bp went to 160/90 at the highest.
I was forced to get off trt after bp meds had serious side effects and low salt diet had minor impact. After watching the video about Bill Clinton and his struggles with the heart bypass and it's failure and having to go vegan and it working. I decided to give it a try.
I went with the Esselstyn diet, the most strict, with the idea I can modify it later.
The diet is
1) no meat, dairy, cheese, or eggs
2) no nuts
3) no oils
Ok I know whats left, I discovered nutrional yeast a protein based cheese substitute, beans, salsa, quiona, oats, vegetables (corn, spinach, sweet potatoes, beets, and broccoli are my staples. There's more that's what I've been eating.
For the first two days, I got severe hunger pains about every two hours so I had to keep preparing meals, kinda tapas style but still kinda hungry. After two days the hunger got better, I tend to eat in spurts which isn't helpful, and my energy level picked up. And my bp dropped 10pts or so.
Okay now 5 days later my bp is 125/80 down from 145/80. My energy is up. My libido is up.
So if you're wondering how this will affect you it's easy to give it a go.
P.S. Here are the links to the Bill Clinton video where he talks about how he felt prior to his heart attack the bypass and the need to also get additional surgeryhttps://i.ytimg.com/vi/JnDrjY2EgnQ/mqdefault.jpg
