So i need a bit of help here. I have gone from 215 before christmas to around 188 at the moment, so i'm only maybe 3lbs away from my fighting weight, but I still have a load of belly fat, but i'm eating primally and doing all the exercise that I feel is right.
Anyone got any hints/tips advice?
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.
bloodorchid is always right
heavy weight lifting, sprints, caloric deficit, good carb refeed and IF would trim your belly fat (been there myself).
You can read with interest pklopp's posts about IF. It helps changing body composition, not necessarily body weight. You're after body fat loss, not muscle loss, are you ?
Just posted these on another thread, but will repeat in case they're useful!

Lack Of Sleep Can Make Dieters Lose Muscle Instead Of Fat
I recommend as much sleep as possible because it's what works for me personally - it's actually more important for me for fatloss than exercise. YMMV, of course.
If your weight is reducing but your bodyfat is staying the same, then presumably you're losing muscle.
I'd say lift weights and eat more protein.
