what are the good and bad fats and how much of them should you consume daily?

Good fats are the natural fats.

Bad fats are the trans fats.

I usually suggest no lower than half a gram of fat per pound LBM. In practice, I generally go higher than this.

good fats

Monounsaturated Fats Monounsaturated fats lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and increase the HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol). Nut, canola and olive oils are high in monounsaturated fats.
Polyunsaturated Fats Polyunsaturated fats also lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. Seafood like salmon and fish oil, as well as corn, soy, safflower and sunflower oils are high in polyunsaturated fats. Omega 3 fatty acids belong to this group.
