Dietary fats and oils yield 9 calories/g, whereas, carbs and proteins produce only 4 calories/gm. Foodies know that nuts and oil seeds are very good sources of fat.

Unsaturated fats have one or more double bonds and are liquid at room temperatures. In general, they are derived from plants. Examples are: soybean oil, safflower oil, etc. Fish oil, on the other hand, is composed mainly unsaturated fats—with little saturated fats.
Saturated fats contain no chemical double bonds. They are solid at room temperatures and commonly derived from animals and some from plant sources. Examples: butter, lard, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, etc.
