I agree with the above but don't forget to add tree nuts to the mix as well. As with anything, moderation is the key and too little fat in the diet may actually increase your appetite leading to weight gain.

Hi Josh. A giant question; I'll narrow it down.
I call it "F.A.T". F - Frequency, A - Amount, and T - Type. All of these will determine how healthy your diet is. Frequency - Eating 3 big meals during the day vs. smaller meals throughout the day (better). Amount: Too much or too little. Type - Poor quality food (e.g, fatty, sugar, and/or "fast food"-type items vs. Yogurt, fruit/nuts, chicken.
