There are two other lifestyle changes you can make to lower your cholesterol: smoking and alcohol.
Smoking can increase your cholesterol and increase the likelihood of other conditions including heart attacks, strokes, and cancer.
Drinking more than 14 units of alcohol per week can increase your levels of cholesterol too.
Whilst it may be hard at first to either stop smoking, drink less, improve your diet or do more exercise, the short-term pain will be worth it for the multitude of long-term benefits.
