Not all fats are bad!
Diet gurus have repeatedly said that "fat is bad," but not all fat is bad and if you cut too much fat from your diet, you may be eliminating the very element you need to absorb the vitamins and nutrients that keep us healthy. Incorporate "healthy" fats like monounsaturated fat (olive oil, peanut oil, and avocados), polyunsaturated fat (vegetable oils, nuts and seeds) and omega-3 fatty acids (fatty, cold-water fish) into your diet. Avoid harmful fats such as saturated fat (meat, eggs, lard, and butter) and trans fat (crackers, cookies, and fried foods).
