    Though certain kinds of fat — such as saturated fats and hydrogenated oils — should be eliminated, there are others that should be consumed regularly, such as unsaturated and omega-3 fats.

    Monounsaturated fat, found in avocado, is a heart-healthy fat that should be included on a daily basis. It helps lower total cholesterol and bad cholesterol (LDL), and can maintain or raise good cholesterol levels (HDL).
