hi kimchie017.....the major reason for high cholesterol is hereditary followed by lack of activity and poor eating habits...since you say you do not eat any junk, the reason in your case could be genetics and lack of exercise.. you need to be active even if you are not fat as exercise helps not only to lose weight but also remain healthy within and keep all health problems at bay.. i suggest start with brisk walks/swim/ jog for 1 hour more of fruits, walnuts( excellent to reduce cholesterol), almonds, salads, sprouts, whole grains like jowar, bajra, ragi, brown rice... avoid refined foods and egg yolks, red meat which are high in cholesterol.. you can take a fish oil capsule 2 times/day which contaisn omega 3 that reduces cholesterol.. rest wel.. be happy and enjoy life..
