In brief: Lifestyle chages 2

Some good sources of monounsaturated fat include avocado, almonds, walnuts, olive and canola oil.
Eat a substantial amount of fruits, vegetables, fiber and whole grains daily. You could add soluble fiber, such as psyllium (as in metamucil), and add a spread fortified with plant sterols or stanols. Omega 3 fatty acids can lower triglycerides. Anything in excess can increase your weight.

In brief: Lifestyle changes

High cholesterol is partly hereditary and the extent you can control cholesterol by lifestyle changes can be limited.
In some cases, medications are necessary. But lifestyle changes are still essential in the management of high cholesterol. As far as diet for cholesterol goes, you should eat more plant-based foods rich in monounsaturated fat while limiting saturated fat and cholesterol.

In brief: Diet changes

Anything that has a liver has cholesterol.
Veggies and fruits do not. A more vegetarian lifestyle will really decrease your cholesterol. 1/2 tsp cinnamon with honey can also decrease your cholesterol. Fish oils as well.

Can you back up your cinnamon and honey claim by citing a study?
