Need to establish: Cause of anemia before providing dietary advice about anemia. Common causes are deficiency of iron, folate (folic acid) and b12. But is it important to rule out blood loss. You should see your doctor for an evaluation. For general advice about nutrition please see this site. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/health-foods/my01108.

No magic: None really. Firstly there aren't really any effective wt loss meds. Over the counter meds are either ineffective dangerous or both. Diet , exercise , counseling and for severe obesity bariatric procedures are the real options. Even a 10# wt loss can reduce your BP so modest wt loss is a real treatment for high bp.
