Thanks for responding, Dr. Jeff. You say that I have no protein for breakfast, but the cottage and ricotta cheeses I often eat contain protein, broccoli contains protein and so does the cereal I eat. So, I donít understand why you say that. Sometimes when I have dinner itís fish and vegetables, but you say that is still more carbs. Isnít fish a protein? You say that extreme fatigue is a symptom of the Diovan medication that Iím onÖ is there a way to lower high blood pressure without medication? Finally, what SHOULD I be eating since I have missed the mark? Thanks much, Dr. Jeff.
