Our HealThy Self Physician Guided Weight Loss has proven results:

The average drop in heart rate is 6.7 beats per minute.
The average drop in systolic blood pressure is 9.8mmHg.

Your blood pressure is typically recorded as two different numbers written as a ratio, Systolic and Diastolic. Systolic, the top number, measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats. While diastolic, the bottom number, measures the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats (when the heart muslce is resting between beats and refilling with blood). This chart reflects blood pressure categories according to the American Heart Association:
Normal/Optimal: <120 systolic / <80 diastolic
Prehypertension: 120-139 systolic / 80-89 diastolic
High Blood Pressure (Stage 1): 140-159 systolic / 90-99 diastolic
High Blood Pressure (Stage 2): >160 systolic / >100 diastolic
Hypertensive Crisis: >180 systolic / >110 diastolic
