Dear Palpats
If you need to lose a great deal of weight and also suffer from hypertension, then I would recommend that you try using the DASH Diet. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Food as medicine' and 'Hypertension' and read about the DASH Diet which was developed in the USA to lower bp. This diet is very low in fat and sodium which will respectively assist with weightloss and lower your bp. If you find it difficult to apply this diet, please consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will assist you with an individual diet prescription. Exercise such as going for brisk walks would help for the weightloss, but please do Not embark on any exercise programme without first consulting the dr who is treating your hypertension. If the dr gives permission you can start doing the type of exercise he/she recommends.
Best regards
