FOODS THAT YOU SHOULD AVOID IF YOU HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

High blood pressure is deadly if not treated with the right kind of food and medication. Sometimes it is difficult to control hypertension with medications but if you avoid some certain food and also include some type of food in your diet, it will be easy to control it. Pre-hypertension [a condition when your BP is little high than normal] is treatable when you take the right medication and eat the right food that contains low-fat {good fat } like avocado pear, lean protein, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Blood pressure can be well managed and even treated if you take your medications and always check your food habit.

Foods you must avoid if you have high blood pressure
:
1.Fast Foods: “As the saying goes, fast food fast dead”. If you have high blood pressure you must stay away from fast foods. The reasons are that these processed foods have high amount of salt that was added to it while processing it. The salt and sugar can increase your blood pressure.

2. Fats: fatty foods like red meat and fried foods can also increase your high blood pressure. To successfully treat your hypertension, you must avoid these bad fats and replace them in your diet with good fats [white meat or avocado pear]. Bad Fats causes plaques in the arteries making it difficult for blood to pass through the arteries and veins thus high blood pressure.

3. Canned foods: canned foods should be avoided if you have high blood pressure. The salt in preserving and making it taste is not good for your cardiovascular health. The added salt is the problem it increases your blood pressure. If you are taking your medications to treat high blood pressure and you are still consuming canned foods, you will not get the needed result health wise.

4. Coffee: coffee is sweet and likes it a lot and even as I write with my laptop right now, a cup of coffee is beside me. I take it always. But if you have hypertension, avoid it. I will advise you don’t take more than 2 times in a day. Coffee contains some compounds that can increase your blood pressure.

6. Alcohol: Alcohol intake can increase your blood pressure if you take too much of it. Avoid it if you are treating blood pressure. Other complications like kidney failure, diabetics, stroke and heart failure can be linked alcohol intake.

7. Bread: The high content of sodium in bread, make harmful to persons living with high blood pressure. If you consume bread once in a while like once or twice in a week, is not too bad but if you take it daily bases, it means you are taking into your system too much sodium that will cause an increase in your blood pressure.
