Do not cook with unsaturated vegetable oils. This is the oil that almost all restaurants use, so if you eat out try not to consume anything fried.
Olive oil is superior to other vegetable oils, and highly recommended as dressing in salads or when cooking in the oven. It also withstands high temperatures, but deteriorates with each use.
For cooking, animal fat is also interesting, stable at high temperatures. Coconut oil is another interesting option, since it mainly contains saturated fat.
If you eat meat from industrially raised animals, limit the fat. Many of the toxins that these animals accumulate (antibiotics, heavy metals) remain in the fat. However, if you eat meat from an animal raised in the wild with natural nutrition your fat is not harmful.
Your diet should contain at least 30-40% natural fats.
This does not mean that the carbohydrates are bad, simply that they should not replace the natural fat, and when you eat carbohydrate, that is the good ones.
