There is some irony to the fact that I spent today in binge hell.....I went to the doctor for my yearly physical and my blood work was phenomenal!!
As I've mentioned before, despite the fact that I've been severely overweight I haven't really developed any of the normal related health problems. However, my blood work still showed some noticeable improvements.
For the first time last November, my triglycerides were up. Normal is no higher than 150, mine was 159. This year I'm at 79! What an improvement! My "bad" cholesterol was still within normal range at 112 last year, this year I'm at 88. Glucose last year was at the high end of normal (100), this year that was 88. My blood pressure is typically 120/80. This year it was 108/80. I won't bore you with the rest of the numbers, but everything had changed for the better.
This reinforces the benefits of staying on a healthy path for the rest of my life. I need to continue fighting the urge to binge. Based on these numbers, I plan to continue following a predominately vegan diet.
Out of the sugary carb filled pit of hell and back on plan!!
