Definitely exercise, even just walking daily can be very helpful in lowering cholesterol.

Also, if you eat a lot of refined carbohydrates or sugary foods, you may want to cut back on those. When I reduced the sweets & bread-like foods (muffins, bagels, etc) in my diet, my triglycerides went from 170 to below 40.

I eat lots of eggs, and my cholesterol numbers have improved enough to get off meds. However I think it was the losing over 100 lbs, and burning 4000 calories a week that did it, not any diet, or certain types of foods. There is no secret, you just have to eat right, and move more. genetics is more of a factor, than diet.
