Maintain a healthy weight. When it comes to hypertension prevention, your weight is crucial, says Dr. Ogedegbe. People who are overweight should try to lose weight, and people of normal weight should avoid adding on any pounds. If you are carrying extra weight, losing as little as 10 pounds can help prevent high blood pressure. Talk with your doctor about the best weight for you.
2. Eat a balanced diet. Eating healthful foods can help keep your blood pressure under control. Get plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in potassium, and limit your intake of excess calories, fat, and sugar. Consider following the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, or DASH, diet , which has been shown to help manage blood pressure.

Cut back on caffeine

If you've ever downed a cup of cofee before you've had your blood pressure taken, you'll know that caffeine causes an instant boost.

However, there's not a lot of evidence to suggest that drinking caffeine regularly can cause a lasting increase

In fact, people who drink caffeinated coffee and tea tend to have a lower risk of heart disease, including high blood pressure, than those who don't

Caffeine may have a stronger effect on people who don't consume it regularly.

If you suspect you're caffeine-sensitive, cut back to see if it lowers your blood pressure.

Regular physical activity — such as 150 minutes a week, or about 30 minutes most days of the week — can lower your blood pressure by about 5 to 8 mm Hg if you have high blood pressure. It's important to be consistent because if you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again.If you have elevated blood pressure, exercise can help you avoid developing hypertension. If you already have hypertension, regular physical activity can bring your blood pressure down to safer levels.

  • junk food
  • prepared soups and sauces
  • certain frozen dishes
  • deli meats
