Abstract: Ninety male hypertensive and hyperlipidemic volunteer subjects having serum cholesterol > 200mg/dl and blood pressure >130/85 mm Hg in the age group of 39-49 years and educated upto graduate level were selected from OPD of PAU Hospital, Ludhiana and were divided into 3 groups A, B and C with 30 subjects in each group. General information of the subjects was recorded by interview schedule. Dietary intake, anthropometric parameters, lipid and hematological profile and blood pressure of the subjects was measured by standard methods before and after the study. Subjects of group A were supplemented with amla powder and nutrition counselling (NC), group B with vitamin C and NC and group C with NC for 90 days at 15 days interval by individual and group contacts about hyperlipidemia and hypertension, their causes, symptoms, diagnosis, complications and management through diet and physical activity. Dietary survey revealed a significant reduction in cereal, fats and oil and sugar and jaggery intake and an increase in intake of pulses, fruits, other vegetables, roots and tubers and milk after the study in all the subjects. A significant (P<0.05) reduction in energy, carbohydrates and fat intake and an increase in protein and fibre intake was observed in all the subjects. After the study body weight, body mass index was reduced significantly in the subjects of group A and B as compared to group C (P<0.05). Blood pressure of the subjects of group A and B was also decreased significantly (6.05 & 5.53 %) after the study. Serum total cholesterol (12.13 & 4.62 %), LDL-C, triglycerides and VLDL-C in group A and B were significantly reduced after the study when compared with group C. An impressive 8.19 percent increase in HDL- C of the subjects of group A supplemented with amla powder and nutrition counselling was observed
