German term or phrase:Fettabbau
"Zucker hemmt den Fettabbau!"
I'm looking for something less brash than "fat burning", if possible, just because I think it reeks of bad style. Probably all that spam I get advertising diet pills. My text is definately less sensational, although the sort of text in which overtly medical terms belong. Any ideas?
Err, that should read "...NOT the sort of text in which overtly medical terms belong". Sorry.

Explanation: It's the first thing that came to my mind. It's also the first entry in my medical dictionary by Thieme. You can also try lipolysis or lipoclasis but those might be too medical. I would go with "fat breakdown".
Explanation: gefällt mir besser als fat reduction, denn Fett wird ja (nicht) abgebaut hier.
The Lipolytic's Role in Fat Management
The fuel for thermo genesis is fat, eaten or stored in the body. When thinking of fat loss, the focus must be on thermogenesis, which burns excess calories away as heat. Stored fat is broken down, travels to the site of brown fat and is used as fuel for thermogenesis. Once activated, thermogenesis continues to burn as long as fuel is available. An adequate supply of fuel is required to keep fat furnaces burning.
Occasionally, people taking thermogenic supplements report a reduction in effectiveness. They reach a plateau and fat loss stops. This occurs when fat is not being converted to its usable form, free fatty acids. Lipolytics, also known as lipotropics, are substances which convert stored fat into a form that can be, transported by the blood to brown fat sites for burning.
