There is no diet that will control your blood pressure. If you are overweight or obese, then diet and exercise with emphasis on weight loss will be helpful. Even then, weight loss may not be a perfect or complete solution to your blood pressure control, so I recommend you work with your doctor if you are planning to do that.
