Healthy Diet and Blood Pressure

Study Description

Remote Dietary Counseling to Promote Healthy Diet and Blood Pressure

Recent American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) hypertension guidelines recommend lifestyle modification for patients with blood pressure >= 130/80 mmHg. While eating a Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH)-type diet, increasing physical activity, and weight loss have been shown to reduce blood pressure, limited resources are available in the primary care setting to help patients make these changes. In this study, the investigators will compare the efficacy of a self-guided vs. dietitian-led approach using web-based lifestyle modification tools to reduce weight, improve dietary quality, and lower blood pressure in overweight/obese adults with elevated blood pressure on 0 or 1 blood pressure medication.
