  • Cut back on fatty foods.

  • Lose a few pounds.

  • Exercise every day. Okay, every other day.

  • Stop smoking.

  • No more than 30 percent of your total daily calories from fat

  • No more than 10 percent of your total daily calories from saturated fat

  • No more than 300 mg cholesterol a day
