Beginning a regular exercise program is one of the smartest things you can do. Do at least 30 minutes of some activity every day, if you can. As for food, remember the basics: avoid a lot of saturated fat and sugar, and gradually increase your fiber intake. Here are some tips for lowering cholesterol: lean meats only do not eat any skin, organ meats or anything packed in oil; most veggies are fine but concentrate on broccoli, celery, cauliflower and potato skins; stick with whole-grain breads like whole wheat or oat; eat three half-cup servings of fresh fruit every day, oatmeal is a wonderful cholesterol-lowering tool. Nothing fried, chocolate or sugary, no butter, use skim or one percent milk only and low-fat or fat free cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc.
