Monounsaturated fats are also called good fats or healthy fats because of their ability to lower bad cholesterol (LDL). You should always try to consume more monounsaturated fats than saturated or trans fats in your diet. Just be cautious about the calories. Nuts and oils are high in calories, so consume in moderation if you also wish to maintain or lose weight.
