Reduce consumption of foods with cholesterol. Cholesterol is present in food products that come from animals. So you can eat more veggies and fruits while substantially reducing meats, cheeses, and eggs.
Other than by taking medications (which can be very effective) to lower the cholesterol level, weight loss is the most effective, but also cutting down on animal fats (meat, eggs, cheese, etc.) and exercising may help reduce cholesterol.
