I am afraid that some people will have to take med's for their HBP. I am very lucky, haven lost weight I have been able to reduce the mg of BP med's. I have friends that nothing they do will help. Just eat and exercise so the med's will work best.
Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2015 weight goals of 50 pounds. Leader "Gluten Free" and Co-Leader "Keep it Simple"

introduced earlier , I am a runner, age 64. I have had HBP all my adult life! I believe heredity played the biggest part in this. I am not overweight, have been running consistently since the age of 27. About 5 years ago I started taking blood pressure medication....my family doctor didn't know what else I could do on my own that I wasn't already doing, so here I am. Unfortunately, my 3 children all have it also. The oldest is 40, the youngest is 27 and yes, even the 27 year old is on medication....
