what should my diet be?

Too broad, but: Healthy. For most people that is high fiber, rich in every vegetable, lean meat, fish or fowl, adequate calcium. Avoid as much sugar as possible, and plain flour products, ie bread and muffins. Avoid any sugared soft drinks. Drink at least two quarts of water per day!

Well balanced: A well balanced diet contains a protein, complex carbohydrate and healthy oils such as olive oil and polyunsaturated oils. Proteins should come from lean meats, chicken fish, legumes, nuts and grains. Carbohydrates should include 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Your diet should be about 20% protein, 60-65% complex carbohydrates and 15-20% from fat. Try to avoid processed sugar, flour.
