Blood pressure is affected by a number of dietary and behavioural factors:

  • A high-calorie diet (with more calories than those burned off during daily activities, and thus associated with increased body weight)
  • A diet high in simple sugars (including fruit juices) and simple carbohydrates (e.g. made with refined type 00 flours, low in fibers, rice, corn) or overcooked.
  • A diet high in salt, and salty foods (particularly processed meats, salami and snacks)
  • A sedentary lifestyle (and one in which amount of activity is not proportional to the calories intake)
  • Cessation of smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Inadequate management of psycho-emotional stress
