I have high cholesterol. Want to have a diet plan.

I have high cholesterol , anybody knows a good diet to reduce it? Last month I took a blood test , my cholesterol level was of 303. I was scared, and I started a Detox Diet from my doctor, this type of diet took out all my antioxidants from my body; eating vegetables, organic foods, fruits etc. I started this diet on May 15, 2006. : Before I start this diet, I felt alot of pain on my chest, back, kidneys, and legs... many headches, my doctor said that it was a closely time to get a heart attack during the next months, but like now I am taking care of myself; I am done with my Detox Diet and my cholesterol went down from 303, to 238, (in 1 month) So anybody knows any diet to reduce cholesterol fast, before the heart attack reaches me!?

My sister fixed her cholesterol and lost 70 pounds in a year by staying away from white foods... ie bread, pasta, cookies, chips, etc. She ate mostly only foods "made by God" such as meat, vegetables, fruit and nuts. She gave up margarine and switched to butter. She never went hungry, ever! She ate non-stop, just not junk. She did cheat every Saturday and ate whatever she wanted including dessert only for Saturday evening. So have at on Saturday, but eat naturally through the week. Most importantly, DONT GO HUNGRY!
