6. Foods to Avoid During Hypertension
The right diet also means there are certain foods people with hypertension must avoid for relief from the condition. Cut red meat from your diet if your blood pressure is consistently high.
So is it no to steak for good? The ideal situation is of course complete elimination of red meat from the diet. At the least hypertension patients can reduce the intake of steak with excess salt or salt-rich sauces.
Also avoid pickles, canned soups, whole milk and fatty dairy products, sauerkraut, French fries from fast food shops, packaged noodles, bacon, sugar and foods high in sugar such as donuts, cakes, and chocolates. Also reduce or eliminate caffeine and alcohol from your diet.
