For cooking:

1. butter or coconut oil
2. olive oil

If not heated:

walnut, avocado, flax seed (probably some others I am forgetting because I don't use them)

Funny thing you mention coconut oil. A friend of ours came by the house yesterday, and was telling us that people are going nuts (no pun intended) over coconut oil to lose weight. I did some research on this, and it says that if you replace all your cooking oils with coconut oil as much as possible, you WILL lose weight. They said you can also use coconut milk, cream, etc in most recipes, for the same effect.

Try looking for coconut oil in health food stores. I know that mine carries it but can't seem to keep it in stock as it sells out fast.
