Balanced diet: Weight loss (if overweight) will often lower cholesterol by up to 20% and triglycerides by up to 50%. Avoiding saturated fat (includes any fat from animals including chicken/cheese/pizza) will reduce cholesterol. Cutting back on carbohydrates in sugar, flour, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes will reduce triglycerides. Fruit, veggies, fish, nuts, soy, unsaturated fats are all fine.
