Weight and Fat

I haven't lost weight (not seriously trying at this time) and don't seem to be doing much more working out, but I believe my wiggly belly fat has started to recede*. I am doing more core work, mostly with the aim of helping my ITB (the exercises include core work) but it doesn't seem like that much more. I also have been <i>trying</i> not to eat as much fat during the day (no Ben and Jerry's for a while, and reduced chocolate intake per day) so maybe that is helping have an effect.<br><br>
I am fairly certain that reducing my overall fat intake is the logical thing to do, in order to keep reducing the cute (NOT) pouch on my front. Anyone have any supporting or counter wisdom to offer?<br><br><br><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">*I cannot back up this feeling with data, like measurements or anything at this time.</span>

I am going to get railed I am sure, but .....<br><br>
also, overconsumption of carbs, especially processed ones, will lead to a belly pooch, as well. Like runningNNYC said "clean" eating is the way to go. Don't cut carbs or fat or anything, but make sure both are coming from the BEST sources. Instead of eating bread and pasta, opt for brown rice, quinoa, etc. Things like that...
Cause I always get railed in nutrition threads <img alt="smile.gif" src=""> But thanks for the support!
Another few studies I have been reading for my research project, have suggested that runners in general eat waaaaaaay more carbs than they actually need. This contributes to many recreational runners' flabby-ness and inability to lose weight.
