Foods to avoid when you have high blood pressure

  • 1.Pickles. A medium pickle can have up to 570 mg of sodium. Salt makes your kidneys hold more water, and this extra stored water can raise your blood pressure.

  • 2.Canned chicken noodle soup. It may be considered comfort food, but it has 880 mg of sodium in one cup.

  • 3.French fries. Fast food french fries have a large amount of fat and sodium.

  • 4.Bacon. It is common knowledge that bacon is mostly fat. Choose lower sodium varieties and try turkey bacon instead.

  • 5.Whole milk. A cup of whole milk has 5 grams of saturated fat, which has been linked to heart disease. Opt for 2% or skim milk.
