In brief: Rich in Omega3
Hdl (high-density lipoprotein) can be increased the most by foods rich in omega3 fish oil, such as cold water fish like wild salmon, mackerel, sardines, etc.
Certain plants (like flax seed) also contain omega3, but not at the healthy quantity as fish.

In brief: Reverse Better Known
? body fat, ? sugar, niacin, exercise most effective.
Ldl & HDL are lipoproteins, i.e. Protein particles which carry all fats in water outside cells. Ldl always in nmol/l, best <700, HDL in µmol/l, best large-hdl >10. See NMR particle test, <$100. Cholesterol is a fat made by every body cell, promoted because cheaper to measure but not best test, ldl-c is calculated, not measured, often misleading.
