One of the easiest ways to weight loss is to reduce your carbohydrate intake. It is these carbs that are the source of energy for your body. And when you reduce your carbohydrate intake, your body finds other ways to generate the required energy and for that the first thing that it looks towards is the fat that is stored in your body.
That way, your body starts to burn the stored fats which in turn helps in fat loss thus reducing your weight.
