What foods would you recommend eating a week before a lipid panel test to try to improve results?

In brief: Same as prior weeks

Getting lipid panel test results is not a game, so there is no goal of getting better numbers within a week's time.
One should be eating the same type of diet for the whole month prior to the testing, so that the results will reflect reality. If one eats more healthily for one week prior to the test just to get a better score, she may get better numbers but it won't reflect her past diet.
