I have high cholesterol, and I eat generally less than 1800 calories a day

I just got my first cholesterol check. I m 18; I walk every day (starting swimming now that finals are over), I don t eat fried foods, I don t eat red meat , and I eat generally less than 1800 calories a day (I m constantly dieting but I m unable to lose weight ). I don t understand how it s possible that my cholesterol level is deemed borderline-high. (Or how I could be on a diet and losing no weight at all)
