Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

For reducing cholesterol level dietary changes are not enough alone.
You should exercise regularly and lose weight if you are overweight.
For dietary changes simply restrict the amount of animal fat in you diet. It doesn't mean you shouldn't eat meat at all, you can eat not fatty meat from time to time, eat more sea fish, avoid fast food, soda, sweets, don't eat sweets and fruits after 5 pm.
If your cholesterol didn't return to normal level, but reduces about 25-30%, it is already a very good result.
Anyway, if you don't have high cardiovascular risks, you shouldn't worry about your cholesterol level much. In this case if you follow healthy lifestyle, the possibility of developing a cardiovascular disease will be low.
