High Blood Pressure/Weight Loss

Lossing a significant amount of weight will help your blood pressure go down and possibly get you off of your medication. I know people who have done it. I am setting that as one of my goals.

Also try eating more blueberries...surprising they have a great deal of vitamins and they are also an antioxidant (weight loss!)

Hi Slimkat,

I think this is an excellent idea. Have you spoken to your doctor about this? I am sure he'll think it's a good idea as well. But remember with any medical condition it's always smart to talk to your doctor before starting an exercise program.

Good luck and keep us up to date on how things are going for you!
