There is no single dietary magic bullet for cholesterol - especially as there is no linear/predictable relationship between amount of cholesterol you eat and the amount in your blood.

The best advice is to exceed the 5-a-day guideline for fruit and veg, and to eat a good variety including nuts and seeds. So almonds would be a good step towards this.

Oatbran is generally regarded to be efective here. Stir a few teaspoons into a yoghurt twice a day or have porridge with extra oatmeal in. You can get it in Tesco.
