You may think some of the foods you’re eating are healthy, but have you checked the salt and sugar contents? 
 
Don’t just “trust” food labels, you need to read them and most importantly make sure you know what the values for the sodium (salt) and sugar content it. 
 
Four foods that raise your blood pressure

Instead: Swap salt in your food for tasty herbs and spices!
 
2. Sugar: If you eat a typical western diet, it’s laden with sugar. Your body stores the excess sugar as fat. Fat around your organs, your arteries and your heart. 
 
Instead: Add raw honey instead of using sugar.
 
3. Caffeine: While coffee is generally good for your health, the caffeine might cause your adrenal glands to produce more cortisol. This stress hormone causes stored sugar in your liver to go into your blood and, because you body doesn’t need it, it turns to fat
 
Instead:  Drink green tea.
 
4. Alcohol: If you drink frequently, you’ll put on weight. There are a lot of empty calories in alcohol, that provide no nutrition to your body.
 
Instead: Drink water and help flush your system of any toxins. You’ll help your body function properly and promote weight loss
