An MD friend introduced me to the National Cholesterol Institute's set of guidelines called Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLCs) (surprisingly cute acronym for such a vaunted group, huh?). It's a codified set of behaviors that don't solely target cholesterol levels. The 'diet' page, which includes a calculator, is at: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/cgi-bin/chd/step2intro.cgi
(wish I knew how to make hyperlinks in comments).

TLC includes many recommendations. My MD friend, who is a cardiologist treating heart failure, tells me that she has 'gotten patients off the transplant list' when they follow these lifestyle changes.
