The most important and often forgot about concept of nutrition when it comes to a diet centered on fat loss, is carb cycling. The basics for reducing your simple carbohydrate (any carb that isn’t a fiber) intake in relation to fat loss is this; your body’s preferred source of fuel is carbohydrates. Therefore if you are consistently feeding your body with simple carbs then you never give your body a chance to tap into its energy reserves (fat).
If you are serious about both eating healthy and trying to lose weight here is a general diet plan that will turn you into a fat burning machine. If you are faithful to this diet, in the beginning quantity and calories shouldn’t be a huge deal. Once your body becomes retooled, and you plateau, then you can start to restrict calorie intake.
