There's no reason to restrict healthy fats. Trans fats, certainly. We don't need ANY of those! Saturated fats have taken a licking because of bad research which originally set us on this path. Our recommendations for the last 40-50 years, and including into today, are based upon this flawed data. It's been in the public consciousness so long now, and so ingrained, even many professionals can't deviate from it. But good and reliable research is out there (and has always been) that refutes it.
"Good" fats include bacon renderings, lard or tallow, schmaltz, coconut oil, olive oil (the regular type, not EVOO), and whole full-fat versions of the typical things we see on shelves these days. Eat whole foods. Milk, cream, butter (never margarine!), chicken with its skin on (!)... If you can get grass-finished meats, aim for the best-marbled cuts you can find! The omega ratios for commercially (grain) finished animals are wrong, but so long as the cuts you're using don't contain much fat (where the omegas are stored), you're okay with grocery purchases.
Do some research. Fats are being reconsidered. Reliable resources (not still under the onus of the old data) confirm it.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
