    What are the different types of fats?

    Unhealthy fats

    * Saturated fat. Saturated fats are mostly in animal foods, such as meat and dairy foods. Tropical oils, such as coconut oil, palm oil, and cocoa butter, are also saturated fats.
    * Trans fat. Trans fats include shortening, partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, and hydrogenated vegetable oils. Trans fats are made when a liquid fat is turned into a solid fat (for example, when corn oil is made into stick margarine). They are in many processed foods, such as cookies, crackers, and snack foods.
    * Cholesterol. Cholesterol is only in animal products, such as eggs, dairy foods, and meats.

    These unhealthy fats can raise your total cholesterol and your "bad" (LDL) cholesterol.

    Healthy fats

    * Monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature but get solid when refrigerated. Eating foods that are high in this fat may help lower your "bad" (LDL) cholesterol, raise your "good" (HDL) cholesterol, and lower your chances of getting heart disease. This fat is found in canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil, olives, avocados, nuts, and nut butters.
    * Polyunsaturated fat. Polyunsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature. They are in safflower, sunflower, and corn oils. They are also the main fat in seafood. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are types of polyunsaturated fat. Omega-3 fatty acids may lower your chances of getting heart disease. Fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel contain these healthy fatty acids. So do ground flaxseeds and flaxseed oil, soybeans, walnuts, and seeds.

    Even though it's better to eat healthier fats, it's still important to be careful about how much of them you eat. All fats are high in calories, so watch your serving sizes.

    Unfortunately, this seems to be a site with a bias. I'd like to see one without.

    It depends how you're eating your coconuts. If you like them raw or as virgin coconut oil (that's been cold-pressed), they're considered healthy and are used to treat many ailments. However, once coconuts are processed, heated, etc. that's when they become bad for you. Coconuts naturally contain Lauric Acid, which is a very potent antiviral and they're great for skin, hair and even as deodorant. Just consume them in moderation.
