Welcome and thanks for your question. You need to stay away from processed foods and empty carbs like sugars, breads and pasta. Also, cut back on red or fatty meats and eat more chicken and fish. The rule of thumb is if it comes from a box, a bag or a drive up window, avoid it.

Be careful when eating out. For instance, the salads at some restaurants have as much fat and cholesterol as a big cheeseburger. Just choose carefully, fish and chicken are best with little or no sauces. Eat plenty of fruit and veggies and ask your doctor about adding some Omega 3 fatty acids.

You don't have to be on a diet, just make wise food choices.

Hope this helps,
