In brief: DIet, exercise;supps

First, it's important to know cholesterol is not the main cause of heart disease- see http://bit.
Ly/1era8lt however, depending on chol. Subtypes lowering it may help. This is a pretty comprehensive article: http://huff.To/11tptid but i would do a few things differently. Avoid red rice yeast- it's a (natural) statin! adults need 5-8000 iu of vit d/day to get optimal levels. Stress reduction helps.

In brief: A few good choices

Congratulations on your goal of improving your lipid profile! there are a few diets that have been demonstrated to reduce cholesterol levels.
I'll give you one: the dash diet: high in fruits and vegetables, and poultry as a meat choice. It lowers blood pressure too. And there are lots of good books on it. Also, exercise (30 min/day, 4x week or more) and modest wt loss will help triglycerides.
