I'm not a doctor but everything I've seen and read is more that your weight and body fat levels are the dominant factor in your cholesterol and triglycerides. I'd bet if you ate nothing but red meat yet kept your calories low (not that it would necessarily be healthy/smart) your blood work would improve.
