If you are trying to lose weight, your blood pressure is perhaps not the first thing you think about. However, as we will show in this blog post, there is a stronger connection between weight loss and blood pressure than you might think.
The problem with high blood pressure
It is normal for a person’s blood pressure to rise and fall. Typically, your blood pressure is lower when you are sleeping at night. It naturally goes up when you are doing physical activity.
But when your blood pressure stays high for a long time, this can damage the inner lining of your blood vessels. This damage might lead to other health problems such as stroke and heart disease. According to the 2017 guidelines released by the American Heart Association (AHA), your blood pressure should stay below 120/80 to be considered normal.
