In brief: Great effect

You can greatly improve you lipid profile by improving your dietary intake.
Limit you intake of saturated fats and transfat and restrict your carbohydrate intake to reduce your triglyceride, and total cholesterol. By reducing Insulin secretion, you can diminish the storation of fat into the liver, fat, and muscle cells.

In brief: Sugar & Body Fat

Reality: Carbs, esp.
simple sugars, are converted into body fat for storage & (along with ?ed body fat) ?es LDL concentrations & ? large-HDL concentrations. Remember lipoproteins are not cholesterol. Cholesterol is a fat manufactured by every animal cell. Lipoproteins carry all fat molecules in the water outside cells. Cholesterol was promoted because cheaper to measure than lipoproteins.

The reader may notice that my answer & the above answer are absolutely contradictory. Why? The above answer has long been mainstream medical industry promotion, as started by Ancel Keys (watch: "Big Fat Lies"), George McGovern (watch: "McGovern's Report") but has never agreed with actual research or any people I have seen since the later 1990s & I switched to tracking lipoproteins (after costs ↓).
