    The Paleo Diet has earned protein a reputation as a powerful weight-loss tool — but as it turns out, the nutrient is good for more than whittling your waistline. People who consume a high amount of protein tend to have a lower risk of high blood pressure, according to a new Boston University study published in the American Journal of Hypertension.

    That's good to know.

    I'm currently cutting back on meat and eating mostly veggies and beans now. I didn't realize protein helped, because I need mine lowered. I know meat actually raises mine and cutting back on it lowers it.

    Oh yeah Clyde, I have to. When God starts dealing with me hard about something, I can't ignore it.

    I must continue to cut out certain things and make this a permanent lifestyle change.

    To get the health benefits, you must drink plenty of water. This flushes the harmful byproducts

    I drink lots of water. Always have. That's never a issue, it's the other stuff at times.

    Bro. Kemetstry,

    Certainly wished you had qualified the phrase, "plenty of water," to reflect plenty of filtered water; otherwise it seems you advocate drinking "tap water," which could be dangerous.
