To try to lower LDL levels:

Avoid trans-fats from hydrogenated oils. These are common in processed foods and fast food restaurants.

Limit saturated fats, which are common in fat from red meat, dairy products, and coconut / palm oil.

Replace such fats with unsaturated fats, commonly found in nuts, vegetable oils (non-hydrogenated, not coconut / palm oil), avocados, and fish.

Lose excess body fat.

To try to raise HDL levels:

Increase exercise.

Avoid trans-fats from hydrogenated oils.
