Eliminating the need for blood pressure medication through diet

has anyone been able to get off of BP meds through lchf diet or keto?

@philm, I had measures in the mid to high 130s/80s typically and then lost about 10 pounds. I’m 5’8", went from 180 to 170 lbs. My BP dropped about 10 pts to mid to high 120s/70s. This was my first intervention, very simple, and I’m glad it worked. To lose weight I eliminated alcohol and reduced fast carbs (no sugar, about 50% less flour and rice). This changes mostly stuck, though I’m not strict about them any more.
