Wild changes in cholesterol within a short time may be an error. Check the trends or get rechecked when you are suspicious. As for how to get cholesterol numbers moving in the right direction, the best you can do is stick to the program 100% and REALLY look at the fat intake. No oils and avoid whole fatty plant foods.
If you are following it 100% before getting checked, and the lipids are not moving in the right direction, you may be one of those few people who can not overcome a genetic predisposition.
