In brief: Saturated and trans

Saturated and trans fat increase bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol.
Sugar increases triglycerides, which are bad fats in the blood.

In brief: Many

In general, try to avoid foods high in saturated or trans-fat.
Saturated fats are found in meats or dairy products from animal sources while trans-fat are found in baked/fried fast food. Here are some examples: egg yolk, butter, liver/pate, cheese, shellfish (oysters, clams), processed meats (sausage lamb, bratwurst)... For some reason, lamb and duck are very high in cholesterol.
