Clinical Trial Summary

Recent American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) hypertension guidelines recommend lifestyle modification for patients with BP >= 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 (BP), 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 untreated hypertension.


Clinical Trial Description

Goals that all participants will be instructed to target include: 1) weight loss >=3% at 3 months; 2) consume a healthier dietary pattern (high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, vegetable/fish/poultry sources of protein, healthier sources of fat, and avoid sugar and salt); 3) reduce sodium intake to <2300 mg/d; 4) at least 180 min/wk of moderate-intensity physical activity. ;
