In brief: Live better
Cholesterol has a genetic predisposition as well as lifestyle component.
Improving your diet and exercising are key. Eat low glycemic is key b/c sugar can increase cholesterol as well. Eat good fats such as nuts in moderation, olive oil, avocados. Eat more plants, eat lean proteins, and exercise! use more fish oil to help.

In brief: Reduce carbs
Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items).
Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance. Low carb food items such as flesh foods, eggs, non starchy vegetables, avocados, saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil are very effective.
