From today onwards, a series on weight loss is launched at the request of our clients. There are two conditions to consider before going for fat loss: firstly, whether you need to lose fat, and secondly, whether you have enough of the essential nutrients for fat burning in your body and/or through diet.


Firstly, what kind of person needs to lose weight? The answer is simple, people who has excessive fat storage.


  1. the culprits of fat hoarding in non-disease situations are nothing more than excessive intake of carbohydrates and/or fats.
  2. they are both metabolised by the liver.
  3. excessive carbohydrate intake is converted into fat, which is present in the fat cells along with the excessive fat intake. 
  4. at the same time, fats also stored in the liver, in the insulin sensors that like fat, and even around the heart and intestinal organs, affecting their normal functioning. 
  5. Therefore, the first place where excess fat is visible to the naked eye is usually around the belly area. This is followed by the hips, the legs, the arms, and the breasts that some girls dream of.


To achieve weight loss and fat reduction, we have to know what nutrients are needed to complete the fat burning, in other words, how fat is actually used up in the body?

  1. Water. FACT: The average water requirement for each person is roughly 35ml per kg of body weight. Take the example of a 60 kg lady, her daily water requirement is 60 X 35 ml = 2.1 litres. Next is your job: figure out how much water you need and Let me know in the comments section;-)
  2. The nutrients that promote fat burning should be in adequate amounts. Fat burning takes place in the mitochondria in the nucleus of the cell. The entry of fat into the nucleus requires long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids to open the door for it, making fish oil, which is rich in long-chain Omega 3, the first essential nutrient for fat burning. 

Once fat enters the mitochondria, it undergoes three steps to complete the burning process. The first step requires vitamin B1235 to complete beta oxidation, the second step requires B235 plus magnesium and manganese to complete the Citric Acid Cycle which result in massive de-electronisation, and the third step, that is, respiratory chain, requires coenzyme Q10 to complete the final production of ATP, or calories. During these three steps, carbon dioxide and water are produced as we all know. 

Therefore, fat burning in the mitochondria requires large amounts of B1235, magnesium and manganese as well as coenzyme Q10, which are the seven key nutrients. 

So, when you don’t have enough nutrients in your body, 1. you don’t burn fat and you don’t lose fat naturally; it also causes 2. incomplete fat burning, which leads to excess ketone bodies and illness, which is why dieting and or long-term low-carb or ketogenic diets are not advisable.

To sum up, to lose fat, you must firstly drink enough water and secondly eat enough nutrients. Here is a list of foods that are rich in these fat burning nutrients. Combining the right nutraceutical supplements will speed up fat burning! 

Next time we will talk about ways to reduce the absorption of carbohydrates and fats in your diet.

Foods high in vitamin B1235 include: various types of roughage and beans, whole milk, chicken, fish, eggs, dark green vegetables

Food sources with high magnesium content: coarse grains and beans, dark green vegetables, seeds and nuts 

It is important to note that the absorption of magnesium requires vitamin B6, vitamin D and selenium.

Foods high in manganese: brown rice, oats, almonds, peanuts and groundnuts

Foods high in Q10: eggs, meat, peanuts, sesame seeds, pistachios and trout

Foods high in long-chain omega3: fatty marine fish such as salmon, horse mackerel, mackerel, sardines
