To lose unwanted body fat and maintain the right amount of body fat requires discipline in dieting. You should have an idea of what your body fat percentage is and your daily calories needs. The process of dieting goes down to decreasing your sugar, or simple carb intake, and your fat intake.
Gradually cut back on all bad fats, while strategically cutting back on carbohydrates. High protein, moderate carb and low fat is the way to go. You could also increase the number of meals to 5-6 in place of 3 heavy meals.
You should also engage in eating habits that cause you to indirectly cause you to create a caloric defect. This mean that your intake of calories is lower than consumption. Diet is good and required for all weight loss plans; however, it is not enough if use alone. It should be part of fat burning strategy.
