hi     he should reduce intake of fat containing foods like oily foods, fried items, ghee. he should take more of vegetables and fruits in the diet ( fibres) these contain more potassium and magnesium , these help in controlling blood pressure. he should reduce salt intake  lees than 2300,mg per day. daily exercise like brisk walk  helps in controlling blood pressure , deep breathing exercise will also help. for detailed chart you consult a dietician they will calculate based on height and weight if you follow above guidelines it will help.
