Try not to complicate things too much.
The fact that you should eat differently whether you're active or sedentary proves that it's not simply a matter of in vs. out. That hypothesis has been disproven over and over again in the literature, but it's one that for some reason dieticians love to cling onto.

"good fats" are still fats, and they typically have similar fates in the body as the "bad fats." All fat has the potential to be stored as body fat if you have an accompanying insulin response. You can just as easily pack on fat if you eat bread with too many avocados as you can by eating bread with too much butter.

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
