Most people like to look slim. It makes us feel good and look good to others. Weight loss has many other benefits than just looking better, it is also important for lowering your blood pressure and can keep you, and the ones you love, healthy as you age gracefully.
High blood pressure
They call high blood pressure “the silent killer” because so many people are walking around with it and don’t even know it. When your blood pressure is high, you’re at higher risk for heart disease, kidney failure, stroke, and other serious conditions. It’s also a rising trend and common causes of high blood pressure include using too much salt in your diet. Thinking more about your diet; what, how, which, where, when and why, is a good start for you, and the ones you love, to manage your blood pressure and lead a healthy life.
Diet to manage blood pressure
Blood pressure rises with body weight, so losing weight is one of the best ways to improve your numbers. Here is a useful plan for you and the ones you love to manage your blood pressure: es:
- 3 vegetable servings per day
- 2 fruit servings per day (choose fruits and vegetables that are rich sources of potassium such as bananas, tomatoes, avocados, dates, tomatoes, raisins, cantaloupe, and oranges)
- 7-8 daily servings of grains, preferably whole grains
- 2-3 daily servings low-fat or fat-free dairy
- 2 or fewer daily servings of lean meat, poultry, or seafood
- 4-5 servings of nuts, seeds, and beans per week
- 2-3 daily servings of fats and oils
- 5 servings of sweets and snacks per week
Even small changes to your weekly routine add up. Climbing stairs instead of taking the escalator is a good start as regular, gentle exercise is good for your heart. It also helps you to get the most benefits from nutrition supplements. If you, and the ones you love, are not already taking nutrition supplements for general health, and if you want to start to lose weight, then try some specialised nutrition supplements.
