In brief: Vegan diet
Medications such as statins generally stabilize the plaque which decreases chances of plaque rupture and heart attack.
In smaller studies they have been shown to decrease the plaque size by very small amounts. A vegan diet low in fat and concentrated sugars probably gives the best chance of reducing plaque burden (google dr. Easselstyn for more info).
