A cholesterol reading of 7.8 is very high. There are other factors that determine the amount of free fatty acids/lipids in your body. You should consult a dietrician for a diet to lower your fat intake. Exercise is a very good form of treatment to lower your cholesterol. Medication is also very helpful and effective to control high cholesterol.
