What ever diet you are on, the 4 basic nutrients are very important for proper health and metabolism.

So you might be saying that carbohydrate is fattening since it carries a lot of calories. The answer to that is, not all carbohydrates caries a lot of calories.

Simple carbohydrates on the other hand, carries a lot of calories and nothing else. These you should keep away from. These would include pastries, sweets, pastas, breads etc.
You diet should be approximately 10% starchy complex carbohydrate.
Proteins are also essential for the building of muscle. You would like your fats to be converted to muscle as well as otherwise utilized. For this to happen other nutrients are involved to aid in proper metabolism. The thing about protein metabolism is that it takes a lot of energy to do so. Hence some of your fats will be utilized in this process. Proteins such as meats, fish and other sea foods, egg, milk, and other dairy products, nuts, seeds, grains, peas and beans are very important in your diet. Approximately 10% of your diet should be that of proteins.
Vitamins are very important for your health and for the braking down and utilization of minerals and vise verse. Water soluble vitamins are mainly obtained from fruits. These you should be eating a very wide variety of. It is very important to eat all kinds of fruits available to you. Along with the valued vitamins found in fruits they are mainly fiber, water and relatively low in calories. Fruits should make up approximately 20% of your diet.
The next 60% of your diet should be of vegetables. Approximately 50% of that should be eaten raw. No doubt you are aware of the high fiber content of vegetables. However most of your fat soluble vitamins as well as some of your minerals are found in vegetables. You should be eating all kinds of vegetables that you get your hands on - be it celery, parsley, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, beet, turnip, tomatoes etc., all vegetables contain different nutrients that are essential for good health.
It is also important that you do not strip away all the fats from your proteins. This is because fats are important for the production of hormones including those necessary for metabolism.
There is one other thing you should not forget - water. Water is very important for keeping you filled and for the movement of bulk though your intestinal system.
It is very important that you eat a very wide variety of foods - fruits, vegetables, complex starchy carbohydrates and proteins.

Pure vegetables move through the digestive system faster and will make you hungry faster, especially if you have suddenly switched from another kind of diet to pure vegetables.

Fruits are sweeter and take less effort to get ready, generally, so I tend to eat more fruits. Unless our company is talking caned, but still, you usually heat up the veggies, so another vote for fruit.
