Thanks for writing your query.
You should avoid oily foods.
Foods which may be helpful are foods rich in fibres, Vitamin C, Omega-3 fatty acids.
Almonds, walnuts, olive oil, legumes, fat free yoghurt, proactive margarine, soybeans, cabbage, broccoli, spinach all help to reduce the level of harmful lipids.
A regular exercise is also very beneficial.
I hope this is helpful to you.
What's a good breakfast for a person who has highcholesterol ?
A low fat diet with no cholesterol and preferably trans-fats--a breakfast with an oatmeal, low fat milk and some fruit would be ideal. Alternatively, brown bread, soya milk and some dry fruits would also do. Apricots are a good dry fruit choice as there is very little fat. The essential aim should be to improve the good cholesterol. Hope you find this information useful. Take care.

For highcholesterol, unless genetic, controlling food habits and lifestyle is the best alternative.
