Eat more vegetables and fruit, and less red meat. Substitute turkey (without the skin) or  fresh cold water fish (eg salmon) for red meat. Don't eat a lot of fried foods. Use cold pressed olive oil instead of other oils. Eat brown rice instead of white rice. Don't use a lot of salt in your food (you can get low sodium salt, which is better than the regular salt). Don't use a lot of sugar, avoid eating a lot of sweets and drinks like coca cola that contain a lot of sugar.

You should be aware that if you have cholesterol problems and high blood pressure then changing your diet will most probably not be enough. You should do some aerobic exercise at least 3 times a week: jogging, running, dancing, cycling, playing sport....

In most cases, eating healthy, whole, natural foods will lower your blood pressure if it's too high.  The key is to avoid processed foods which are usually very high in salt, refined carbs, and harmful fats.  Salt, refined carbs, and unhealthy fats are the main dietary causes of high blood pressure.

You can also drink hibiscus tea, herbal teas containing hibiscus as a main ingredient, or other hibiscus-based drinks, to lower blood pressure.  Hibiscus has been clinically shown to lower blood pressure as effectively as some prescription medications, and yet it is much safer, having been consumed as a beverage for hundreds of years.  It is not as strong as the strongest medications but it behaves at least as well as some of the weaker ACE Inhibitors, and without any of the strong side-effects associated with these medications.

Good luck!  The most important thing is to cut processed foods out of your diet and eat whole, natural foods.  Try to get your protein from fish instead of red meat, too.
