Default Good Fat / Bad Fat

What are the "good" fats for me to eat and "bad" fats for me to avoid?

good fats are anything with high Monounsaturated and/or Polyunsaturated fats.. saturated and trans fats are the bad ones..
it all comes down to cholesterol. trans and saturated fats raise bad cholesterol which is LDL.
Monounsaturated raise good cholesterol which is HDL and lowers LDL
Polyunsaturated lowers all cholesterol which is ok but not the best

good foods:
nuts, extra virgin Olive oil, flax seed oil, all natural peanut butter (with the oil that is floating on top, mix that in and never pore it out.. that's good fat there), Omega 3, 6, 9s.., eggs, dairy, avocado

bad fats:
processed food, chocolate, candy, fat from meat (but a small amount is ok).

here's a site I like to use to find out some good food nutrition.

when u say the same oil do u mean the same oil reused or the same type of oil...if its the same type of oil reused thats absolutly disgusting in my opinion if your switching the types of food that are used with it

good fats are not limited to unsaturated fats. there are some saturated fats that have good health benefits as well. coconut being one of them.

good fats are things like: extra virgin olive oil, avacado, almonds, walnuts, coconut oil, etc.

bad fats are things like: margarine, ANY transfats, anything that is a "hydrogenated" oil
