Focus on Fat to get ripped
When trying to get ripped, cutting out all dietary fat isn't a good idea. Healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids as well as monounsaturated fats can actually help you lose bodyfat.

Fatty fish like salmon and trout as well as walnuts are good sources of omega-3 fats while olive oil, peanut butter, avocados and eggs are all good sources of monounsaturated fats. Plain nuts are great too. One study from Loma Linda University (California) reported that subjects following a low-calorie, high-fat diet with the majority of fat coming from almonds lost significantly more bodyfat than those consuming the same calories but higher carbs and lower fat.

Therefore, keep fat intake at 20%-30% of total daily calories.
