Yep I've had the same problem mainly when I get up out of the chair, one of the main reasons I wanted to go on the diet wasn't vanity but because I have high blood pressure, its controlled with drugs but the side effects are rotten. Along with the weight dropping I'm glad to say so is the blood pressure - quite drastically, I think when I'm getting up from a chair the pressure is a bit low and I get the "black out" type thing, although it only lasts for a split second. Another 1/2 stone and I'm off to the Docs to get my meds adjusted
Hey , Im a bloke too... well last time i looked i was..
I get a bit dizzy when i stand up too. but i just have to settle myself and drink some water straight away and then I am fine.. I do zone out a bit and loose focus.. (dont tell my boss) But its nothing too serious.. I am drinking too much coffee which i think isnt too good.. I get shakes from it.
The last time on LT this just lasted for a week max, then it was grand.
I would say just to be on the safe side discuss the side affects with your chemist or GP.. Better to be safe than sorry.
Thanks fellas- was getting worried about the light-headed thing as am on blood pressure tabs and have lost 2 and a half stone as I start the 6th week of 12. Am feeling f***ing fantastic but had started to worry about the head-flip thing on standing. Have also had to stop reading on the bog as left leg goes to sleep and the arms go dead whilst asleep far more often without 2000 psi surging thru the veins anymore. hoping the pain under the ribcage is the stomach shrinking and not the onset of a heart-attack!

Any of you guys on blood pressure meds who have lost a couple of stone should go to your GP and ask to have meds reviewed. If your BP is weight related and not genetic then you may well be taken off your meds and reviewed a month later and then takn off permanently.
Another here. First day is tomorrow. Im at 227 lbs at the moment aiming for around a 165-180. Being quite a large built bloke im going to see what I look like and then decide if I want to aim for the 165. Good to know there are other blokes on here. Really want this to work.
