Brief Answer:
avoid carbohydrates and fat mostly

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

triglycerides are formed when the carbohydrates are in excess (have not been consumed). Alcohol is another main cause of high triglycerides. But it's not only sweets and alcohol. Other food and drinks contain high amounts of carbohydrates like various beverages, starch containing food, beans, etc.
High fat food may also contribute.

Omega-3 supplements help with triglyceride elevation. Eating food with high fiber content also helps. Daily exercise and maintenance of a healthy body weight are important as well.

I hope you find my comments helpful!
Kind Regards!
