I'm right at the one year mark of switching from a very strict vegan eating regimen to a very strict paleo one. I got Robb Wolf's book last year, read it and was impressed, tried it and have never looked back. I feel great.
Regarding blood pressure, though, it immediatly, upon implementation of the paleo eating, went from a consistent 115/75 to 130ish over 85. Not terribly worrying, but noteworthy. I've been at 115/75 for many, many years, so I did indeed note the increase.
Anyway, I'm now back in the 115/75 range. Literally nothing has changed over the course of the year with regard to diet, sleeping, exercise, stress or any of the other usual suspects.
It's just sort of curious to me. I'm not worried and never really was. Has anyone else had a marker such as blood pressure change at the one-year-mark for paleo eating? I remember reading something from Chris Masterjohn about LDL possibly dropping after a year of paleo.
(I maybe should be getting that checked, as the LDL shot up from 110 to 195 after just a few weeks of paleo. I'm not too worried about that, either.)
