In brief: Salty foods

Avoid processed foods and any foods high in sodium - read the labels! you should eat less than 1500 mg of sodium daily!

In brief: Salts and fat

Individuals who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure should avoid salt and salty foods as these will cause water retention and higher blood pressure, and avoid saturated fats as these could lead to weight gain, also causing the blood pressure to go up.
