    What is the fastest way I can lose 40 lbs.

    Mostly just fat in my stomach.

    Is there a specific type of food I should eat?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    1) Change your diet 70-80% of your weight loss will come from watching calories
    2) You can't spot reduce, you'll loose weight (fat) everywhere
    3) Eat what you want just do it in moderation. Calories make you fat not carbs or fat.

    The cleaner you eat, the better you will feel, the better your work outs will be, the more you will loose.

    How much calories should I be intaking?

    What does eating cleaner mean?

    I am at 230 and ideally I want to get back down to 180.

    Eating "clean" generaly means focusing on wholesome, relatively unprocessed carbs(fruit, oats, rice, potatoes, yams) lean protein(eggs, chicken, fish, lean beef) veggies and healthy fats(olive oil, fish oil, coconut oil, flax oil).

    Calories are variable from person to person. Start around 1,800-2,000 and work your way down from there.

    If you're simply focusing on losing 40 lbs as fast as possible a very low carb, low calorie diet would do it. 1600 calories and 20 grams of carbs a day(and some exercise) would probably have you at your goal in two months. But those two months would suck.
