In brief: Had or have?

Fatty liver can be big droplets of fat (macrosteatosis) - likely to respond to diet at least in the first instance for most - or small droplets (microsteatosis) caused by medications, for example.
Diet will not improve the latter. If the diagnosis has 'only' been made on ultrasound, be wary, as us only detects sound wave reflections; early cirrhosis (no alcohol necessary) can mimic. See liver md.

In brief: Low fat, low calorie

Your diet should be low in fat, especially saturated fat and trans fat.
Equally important is low total caloric intake and exercise with the goal of gradual and sustained weight loss.
