How to treat hypertension?

Good morning. I am Mame 46 years old, 1.72 cm, 92 kg. Have been diagnosed for hypertension and hypercholesterolemia for few years. Am taking Amlodipine for the hypertension; never wanted to take lipitor or related medications for the cholesterol thinking that dieting and exercises will help me stabilize it. Two weeks ago my doctor convinced me to start and I am taking Simvor 10 mg. It seems to me that I am gaining weight despite the physical efforts and diet associated (Exercise 5-6 days/7; kind of low carb diet).

Thanks for your assistance
