Low saturated fat: The best diet for lowering triglycerides and cholesterol is to maintain a diet that is low in saturated fats (primarily fats from red meat, dairy, chicken skin, lard, etc.), high in fiber (whole grain, vegetables, etc.), low in simple carbohydrates (sugar, starches, "white" foods like rice, pasta, etc.), and low or moderate alcohol consumption. Follow up with your doctor to monitor your progress.
