Did you ask your doctor for a plan you can follow regarding diet and exercise? I would start there.

Here is a link to the WebMD Cholesterol Management Center where you can find a variety of information:

Your Bad cholesterol (LDL) should be between 70-100 and the good (HDL) more than 40.
I started using a good fish oil and the HDL went up 12 points, LDL down 5 and triglycerides 13 points.
Also eating an apple or pear a day will lower your total cholesterol, increase the good one and lower the bad one.
