Diet and exercise

Eat right and exercise

With every meal you fix you can reduce your cholesterol, reduce your weight and help to reduce your blood pressure. If you are diabetic, healthy eating may reduce complications.

Stay trim and fit

Adding physical activity to your daily schedule will also help to hold down your blood pressure. If you are overweight, talk to your doctor about establishing a weight loss program. A typical goal is to lose a pound a week by exercising for 30 minutes three times a week.
