The simple answer to losing weight and reducing your body fat is about calories in vs calories out. If you eat more calories than your body burns (in everyday activities and exercise) then you will store those calories as fat. The opposite is also true, if you consume less calories than you burn, you start to lose weight. However, it is also important to understand that the quality of food you eat (ie. the nutrient content) is crucial to ensuring that your weight loss is HEALTHY and SUSTAINABLE.
