there are three types of fat, trans fat, saturated fat and unsaturated fat.

Trans fat

Trans fats should be avoided as best as you can as it’s the worst type of fat for your health.
If you see trans fat on the label, try and look for an alternative as it raises bad cholesterol while lowering the good cholesterol.
A diet high in trans fats increases the risk for heart diseases, stroke and higher your chance of developing type 2 diabetes.

To be safe it could be wise to lower your intake of saturated fat as larger amounts could cause increase cholesterol levels and can increase your risk for heart disease.

Unsaturated fat
