If you really want to reduce fat fast, then you need to take your nutrition seriously. This is not particularly easy, but it is necessary. Here’s a quick overview: You need to eat both fat and carbohydrates to maintain mental and body strength. The key to losing body fat is to know which foods accelerate fat burning in your body and which foods prevent fat burning. Healthy foods improve your metabolism which is the underlying reason why people talk about fat burning foods. Workout routines that improve you lean body mass (muscle vs. fat ratio) also cause your metabolism to burn more calories.

The first nutrition recommendation is to consume 90% of your carbohydrates from fruit and vegetables and reduce the intake of processed foods like breakfast cereals, soft drinks, bread, biscuits and artificial sweeteners because they contain a high level of sugar and harmful chemicals. This one recommendation will give you lots of mental energy. Good carbs include whole grain breads, brown rice, millet and sweet potatoes. The best fruits include blueberries, grapes, kiwi fruit, apples and apricots. You should also drink at least 6-8 glass of plain water every day.

You augment your carbohydrates with protein and fat foods, some of which we were once told were bad for us. Eat real butter, whole eggs, olive oil, avocados and raw nuts like almonds and cashews. Foods to avoid are hydrogenated oils, canola oil, margarine and substitute butters.

From there you can go in almost any direction you want because you will get most of your calories from those basics. You can add meat, grains and dairy like yoghurt but if you don’t lose your belly fat you need to reduce these latter foods. Just find out what works for you. Just to give you an idea about the type of foods you should consume, I’ll include a food classification matrix in which foods are categorized as A+, A, B, C etc.

A+ Grade carbohydrates. Spinach, broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus, red peppers, yams and sweet potatoes, beans, basmati rice, lentils.

A+ Grade proteins. Salmon, rainbow trout, herring.

A+ Grade fats. Flaxseed oil, fish fat (salmon, trout, herring, sardines).

A Grade foods in the same categories,  Potatoes, carrots, quick oatmeal, all fresh fruits. Chicken breast, turkey breast, fish, shell fish, egg whites, non fat cottage cheese, whey protein.
