In brief: Fill up your plate

With fruits and veggies, fiber (whole grains, oatmeal, nuts and beans).
Eat lean meat, fish. Cook with olive oil.

In brief: Agree w Dr. Yep

Additionally, i would add that soluble fibers in particular (those found in foods like oatmeal and grains like psyllium) have been shown to lower total cholesterol.
Good fats, especially omega 3 fatty acids like those found in salmon and walnuts, tend to raise the HDL (good) cholesterol while lowering the LDL (bad) cholesterol.
