Remember that vegan isn't a meal plan and there are plenty of fat vegans out there. Coke & chips are vegan. Going vegan is just part of a process toward healthy, whole food, low fat eating.

More importantly, what is your BP with normal hydration? Like 24 hours or more after a ride.

normally my left arm reads higher +10 than the right, as it has a few extra bits of stainless steel.

I had some 'other issues' around 50yo and went for a stress test. In fact stress/anxiety was my issue, and it was giving me palpitations and slightly raised BP, as it turned out.

I couldn't run due to a knee injury, but walked the treadmill into the ground for 15 mins and they said "nothing wrong with you cardio-vascular wise" - in fact they were pleased to have someone who could throw up a decent result rather than the elderly and frail patients they usually tested. This was well before I began regular riding as well. Hopefully you'll have a good result on the test.

Pay some attention to diet/exercise and try to factor OUT stress causes, and life is much better. :wink:

The stress test was far less stressful than I had been led to believe - I was chatting to the Dr all the way through, even at 90% of max - stopped because Dr had what he needed & I don't like running. Nowhere near as hard as climbing Bobo or Akuna Bay.

Dr wasn't worried about the minor blockage identified in the CT, but do have to take a statin (rosuvastatin) - nothing unusual for an overweight 50yo bloke.

I keep telling myself its time to lose weight, but that's mainly so I can keep up with my brother on climbs.

Already dropped it back to 2 cups a day max from 4 or 5 :oops:

Yet to be told to drop coffee - remembered not to have a double espresso prior to the stress test :D - so keeping my fingers crossed
