    1. drink lots of water through the day, and slowly.
    2. grind flax seed daily, and put a tablespoon or two in your cereal and such, and eat it.
    3. Follow the Zone diet; get your information from the source - Dr. Barry Sears.
    4. Be aware that the balance of LDL (good) cholesterol to HDL cholesterol is the real issue, not the amount of cholesterol, and that triglyceride levels may be even more important than cholesterol.

    Cholesterol is associated with heart disease and, since it was the first chemical in the body found to be associated with it, is best known. But, in fact, heart disease is a complicated physical, chemical, and emotional process not tied to any one chemical. A holistic, healthy, natural life addresses many different aspects of heart attack prevention.

    I'm conscious of having brisk walks and jogging session every morning.. It helps a lot, releasing more sweat even when its cold. I'm no vegetarian or nutritionist but I think lessening the level of fatty foods intake can help you battle cholesterol too!

    Above all, I would consult a physician, as everyone has different needs when it comes to cholesterol management and this will help determine where you are at with your cholesterol based on tests, etc.

    Stay Active-go jogging, bicycling, walking, hiking...etc.

    Eat Healthy-be knowledgeable about what you are eating. 

    Alleviate Stress-The object of the goal is to relieve stress, not to avoid it completely. Find a good activity that helps you relieve the stress from a hard day at work or in your personal life and DO IT. Even when you don't feel like it. for me, that's a good session of PT (Physical Training/Working out) and I always feel better afterwards.

    Taking Fish Oil/Omega-3 can help (or so I hear,) but I am not a Physician.
