People with high blood pressure need to be very careful about their diet. In fact, with a healthy diet, blood pressure can be kept under control and the heart can be kept healthy. When specialists point out the importance of healthy nutrition, they are not joking at all. Eating healthy is essential for body care.
What people with high blood pressure should eat and what not to eat
Those suffering from high blood pressure are always followed by a specialist with periodic checks. They also always inform the patient about which foods to eat and which ones to avoid. There are so many studies on what to eat and what not to eat for those suffering from high blood pressure. So let’s see what the experts advise.
So let’s see now what the experts have advised. And what are their recommendations. The first, really fundamental, concerns the salt. In fact, salt must be avoided on the table. As this Government document reminds us in great detail.
We always take care when buying ready-to-eat foods by making sure that the salt content is minimal or zero. This is quite rare, because salt in ready-to-eat foods is often very present, as well as in hamburgers, sausages or various snacks.
Packaged vegetables are also high in salt, so let’s try to buy fresh ones. These are very good because they are full of substances that expel free radicals. However, when we cook vegetables we don’t have to use salt.
Under the advice of your doctor you can find valid alternatives to sodium, such as modified salt, if just eating bland is not for us. We also avoid foods that are too fatty because they could raise blood cholesterol. Which is never a good thing. We therefore avoid excessively fatty meats or dairy products.
