    If I recall:

    Fats should be 70-80% of your total calorie intake.

    half of that should be satured fat.
    no more than ten percent should be PUFA.
    The rest should be MUFA.

    Trans fat = the devil.

    It doesn't really work that way. Depends on your goals, your height, weight, sex, activity level. Fats should account for at least 50% of your diet but there's no hard and fast rule as to what that percentage is made up of. Read this: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/fats/ If you're eating good foods, your percentages will take care of themselves.
