What are some steps you will take to lower your high blood pressure?

"For one thing, my doctor says I've got to cut down on the sodium in my diet, so my goal is to really watch what I eat."

How will you achieve your blood pressure goals?

"No more grabbing a burger and fries at a fast food joint for lunch, starting now. My wife Monica already volunteered to fix some new recipes — if I help."

What's your toughest challenge?

"I'm always on the run at lunchtime, and I've got to figure out some good options besides fast food."

Quotable quote:"You're looking at a guy who's getting back in control!"
