Doctor: For overweight individuals with high blood pressure, dieting and exercise together are more effective than either alone. The best option would be to set up an exercise program at home. Begin with a walking programeither outside or on a treadmill or some other cardio machine for your home. Yoga and swimming are also god options. Whether it’s walking, water aerobics or home exercise videos, find something you can do and do it as much as you can. Before you do anything, always see your doctor to make sure you can safely exercise without hurting yourself.
