The key for making changes in lipid levels is adherence to a regular routine for the first phase of conditioning so that significant reductions in lipid levels may be achieved in a 2-3 month period, and these changes can be maintained over long periods of time (years). With a small weight loss, lipid recductions and hypertention will probably decrease, as well.
