In brief: Raise HDL lower LDL

What will be most helpful to you is to get back into vigorous physical exercise.
This will probably be more helpful than diet and may keep you from needing a statin. If you do need medication, don't refuse it. Much of your cholesterol and coronary risk are genetic, despit all the "pop" wisdom.
