    I am not sure what you mean by whole form? Is that to say that you don't want to know about monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats? Or maybe you're worried about the partially hydrogenated fats (as you should be).

    I guess to make it simple I will break it down into two lists:

    Fats to avoid: polyunsaturated fats (omega 6, not omega 3), trans fat & partially hydrogenated oils.

    Fats that are hugely beneficial: monounsaturated fats, essential fatty acids (but again really just the omega-3 because you already get enough omega-6), and saturated fats.

    You may be thinking that I am crazy for putting saturated fat on the good list, but the truth is that there is a huge lie surrounded saturated fats, promoted by the major health organizations and our government.

    Saturated fats are crucial for health and weight loss. Research the benefits of coconut oil.
