Bill is a 45-year-old bachelor who eats a grab-and-go breakfast, eats all of his lunches out, and has takeout or "something easy" for dinner. Billâs doctor is concerned that his blood pressure is progressively rising with every office visit and has advised him to cut out the salt to lower his sodium intake. Bill rarely uses salt from a salt shaker and is unsure what else he can do to lower his sodium intake. 1) What foods did Bill eat yesterday that were high in sodium? What foods were relatively low in sodium? What are better choices for him when eating out? How can he lower his sodium intake while still relying on "something easy" when he prepares food at home? 2) Knowing that potassium may help blunt the effect of a high-sodium intake on blood pressure, what foods would you recommend he add to his diet that would increase his potassium intake?

3) In overweight people, weight loss helps lower high blood pressure. Bill is "a little heavy." What changes/substitutions could help him lose weight?

What are better choices for him when eating out?

How can he lower his sodium intake while relying on "something easy" when he prepares fod at home? Hecan always choose eegs without the bud, cooked vegetables, which are really easy to prepare, and any dish that he likes just without adding extra salt.

2) Knowing that potassium may help blunt the effect of a high-sodium intake on blood pressure, what foods would you recommend he add to his diet that would increase his potassium intake?

The bananas are a great potassium source, he can have them as snacks, also the orange and the melons.

3) In overweight people, weight loss helps lower high blood pressure. Bill is "a little heavey". What changes/substitutions could help him lose weight?

First of all, the alimentation. There is known that at least 70% of weight loss is mainly about the food and only 30% the exercise. So, making a change in that aspect would really repercuse on Bill´s weight.
