Everything in moderation. Even a little fat in the diet is healthy for the body. Just choose the right fats and limit yourself. Fresh fruit, vegetables, fiber rich grains and legumes, and lean meats and proteins are always good choices. Variety is important, and limit the sugary snacks and foods with empty carbohydrates. Choose healthy snacks between meals.
Diets should not make you feel deprived, starved, or hassled. Perhaps the best thing is not to use the word "diet" at all. Eating well should just become part of your way of life.
