Low blood pressure

I generally have low blood pressure but when I'm on lighter life it gets even lower. I regularly get light headed and feel faint when I stand up. It's a pain but it isn't a problem health wise. I've lost 22 lbs in 5 weeks on LL so I figure its a small price to pay for great weight loss

I don't have low blood pressure but I know our counsellor recommends putting salt in the soup to raise your blood pressure a bit. Worth a try??
Hope it helps.

i had low blood pressure at a doctors check up about a month into lighter life total, the doc advised drink more water, and sure enough the blood pressure went back to normal by the time of the next check-up 4 weeks later (plus the benefit of drinking more aiding the weight loss)
