In brief: Yes

But as with most things, don't overdo it.
Your diet must contain protein and fatty acids, but high fiber will allow smooth passage of your food through your gastrointestinal system and absorption of some fats in food. Get the fiber naturally from fruits, vegetables, bean, nuts, and whole grains.
