My husband has high cholesterol

Ok my husband had to have blood work done last week. His doctor called today and told him that his cholesterol and blood pressure are very high and that he wants him to come back in 14 days. Can anyone give us tips to lower this cholesterol problem in a quick manner. We would also like a list of foods that he should be eating...I bought some cherios and yogurt and someother things tonight that were low. What we find is strange about this whole thing is that we dont eat much meat in our house. We eat alot of chicken and hamburg, but we buy 80/20 lean. I know that high cholesterol comes from eating meat, this just doesnt make sense to me for people who dont particularly like meat. Thanks for any help or tips.. he is only 34, yes he smokes and drinks alcohol. I am not looking for stupidity on this question, thisis very serious. Some of you may think this is a game until your health goes south. It will come back to you.. Let me refraise the meat situation.. We rarely eat meat, but when we do eat meat, it is chicken and hamburg.. no steak or anything like that....

If he eats eggs, the cholesterol is in the yolk, so tell him to just eat white eggs. Also, limit the amount of red meat. Exercise is always helpful and increase fruits and veggies.
