Whether you love your body or not, sometimes you just need to say enough is enough. Weight loss is not an exactly science for most people. Contrary to popular belief some people are not fat because of eating habits or exercise routines, but instead are genetically predetermined to store fat. These genetics date back as far as our caveman ancestors, where those who had the genetics that allowed them to store fat easily often survived patches of starvation or violent weather conditions. Today because of our survival lifestyle dying out people who store fat easily are often the ones who balloon up to a tremendous size due to no active attempts to do so. These people often have trouble shedding this weight and as a result yo-yo diet if they feel insecure about it and want to lose it. Quite often this yo-yo dieting induces a number of biological factors that makes the body believe they are starving, and as a result when these people start eating normally again they gain back any weight lost and end up larger than before. The result of this rapid weight gain and loss on the body can push blood pressure up even if previously they have no history of high blood pressure. There are far more factors when it comes to developing high blood pressure, but yo-yo dieting is one of the most prevalent currently.
A method of maintaining healthy blood pressure when it is heading dangerously high is with a drug called Coumadin, which requires a specialised diet. The Coumadin diet is worked around taking a supplement known as Coumadin which is generally uses as an anticoagulant for thinning blood, commonly this has previously been used on those susceptible to blood clots or blood thickening. Strictly speaking it is not a prescription drug and therefore can be part of the Coumadin diet without any need for a doctor to write a prescription.
When it comes to the Coumadin diet you have to be especially careful of the number of Coumadin side effects that come with taking the supplement. Coumadin side effects are nothing spectacularly new, most medications often have side effects on the body depending on the person, but with the Coumadin diet you need to be especially aware of the Coumadin side effects to preserve your health.
Coumadin side effects can range from your requiring adding more vitamin K into your Coumadin diet, to more extreme effects such as bleeding should you happen to ingest green tea on a regular basis. Substances such as alcohol must be avoided entirely while on the Coumadin diet, as with any other kind of blood thinning medication. Avoiding Coumadin side effects is not a zero sum game, and quite often cannot be avoided if you are going to actively take the medication to reduce your blood pressure and improve your overall health. The best you can do is avoid foods and beverages that will not mix well with the Coumadin diet, and if any alterations are to be made that they are first run through a physician or nutritionist before they are made.
