"Good" Fat is "Good" Fat right. Can someone explain to me why I can eat a lot of bacon fat (I mean nawing on huge chunks of fat only) and my tummy doesn't hurt BUT if I eat same amount of say coconut oil or even fatty fish I feel ill.

So called good fats are not always good for everyone. Individual tolerance is a trump card.
I've seen a lot of people report intestinal discomfort from coconut oil, this could be due to the unique medium chain fats or a sensitivity to salicylates or something else. As for the fish I don't know, but I have seen fish oil studies in which subjects reported abdominal discomfort as a common side effect.
