Healthy blood cholesterol levels consist of the following: high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the "good" cholesterol, should be more than 45 mg/dl; low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the "bad" cholesterol, should be less than 130 mg/dl; total cholesterol should be less than 200 mg/dl; triglyceride level should be less than 400 mg/dl. Healthy lifestyle habits are necessary to reduce high cholesterol levels (i.e., exercise, reduce body weight, avoid smoking, eat fish, reduce saturated fat intake, increase unsaturated fat intake, avoid processed foods, reduce sodium intake, eat more fruits and vegetables, increase fiber intake from whole grains, reduce alcohol intake, etc.).
