Piece of cake dude:

Select Format/EditStyle sheet.  You'll get a blank "private style sheet".  From the left menu that says, "choose style to modify", select Text.  You'll get a skeleton override for Text at the bottom.  Open up this cell with Shift/control E. It'll look something like:


See, it's just a skeleton.  Now add, FontFamily->"Helvetica" to it like this:


Close the cell with another Shift/Crt E.

Now save it as something like "myNewDefault". Make sure it's saved in the StyleSheet directory that Mathematica expects to find stylesheets.  Now may need to exit Mathematica for it to show up in the list of styles.  Do that, bring up Mathematica again, should be in the list.  Choose it and your Text format should be Helvetica.
