There are four kinds of fat, and are listed from good to deadly: Monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated, and trans. Mono and polyunsaturated fats are those that come from products of the earth. Nuts, avocados, etc. Saturated is from animals (bad) and trans is tampered with by humans (deadly). Even products that say 0 Trans Fats often still do (marketing is really messed up). Look in the ingredient list, and if you see the word hydrogenated or PARTIALLY hydrogenated, eat it as rarely as you can afford to. So, although you need to include fat everytime you eat, try to choose healthy fats – most things that come from the ground.

Fat: Don't we all have a love/hate relationship with it? You need to include some fat everytime you eat (don't touch those Krispy Kremes yet, Chump - keep reading first). When your body gets everything that it needs (and it needs healthy fats), it doesn’t bug you for anything else. Your cravings go away. And, your body gets rid of what it DOESN’T need, which is excess fat. Healthy fat doesn’t = fat in the body, remember that. The same way that cholesterol in food doesn’t necessarily lead to bad cholesterol in the body… but saturated fat does.
