Can you give me a list of foods to eat that will raise HDL levels without raising total cholesterol?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Exercise

Exercise raises hdl.
Reducing saturated fats may help, but no foods increase HDL per se, except alcohol and i would not recommend that. Consult your doctor to see if you need medication that may raise hdl, e.G, niacin.
