In brief: Heart healthy
Persons with high cholesterol should follow a diet that is low in fat, and cholesterol.
A healthy diet would include fruits, vegetables, low fat meats such as chicken, fish and turkey. You would want to avoid a lot of red meat. You should consider grilling, broiling, or baking your food instead of deep frying. Reading food labels is important as well, some foods will surprise you.

In brief: ↓↓Carbs & ↑Nat. Fats
Cholesterol (?$, but misleading): a fat molecule manufactured by every animal cell, building block of each cell membrane (enables membrane fluidity/movement without tearing), fundamental to survival of every animal cell.
Lipoproteins (proteins which transport all fats in the water outside cells) is the correct issue for artery disease (e.g. Ldl ?700 nmol/l, HDL ?45 µmol/l). Study: nusi.Org, lustig.

Unfortunately Dr. Krenn's answer, long widely promoted by the medical disease industry http://goo.gl/Blh6rW has ALWAYS been backwards of reality & all clinical research trials. It was started by Ancel Keys based on cherry picked observational data http://goo.gl/DKvdSI made official US Gov. policy by George McGovern http://goo.gl/mpd4Y6 & promoted by poorly done studies using hydrogenated fats.
