HDL is not difficult to increase. Increased consumption of saturated fats will drive up both HDL and TC, with a reduction in the TC/HDL ratio. (LDL will also increase and TG decrease markedly if reducing carbs but the HDL increase will more than cancel the influence of the LDL increase on the ratio). As a maths savant I'm sure you can work this out.
