If you’re like most people, then you have probably asked for advice on how to lose weight in the past and been baffled by the many contradicting answers you have heard. Today we will be looking at five proven factors which will help you to remove doubt from your diet plan and get some serious results.

Once you have laid down the foundations of your diet with the 5 rules given to you here, you will then learn how to combine each of them with hiit sessions in order to push your fat loss results to a whole new level. []

Once you have been able to lay down the ground work with the five diet principles, you can add a high intensity interval training routine alongside it to elevate results one step further. Let’s start with a quick look through the diet principles:

* Establish your daily calorie goal.

* Your protein/carbohydrates/fats ratio must be optimized.

* You must drink plenty of water.

* Discover how to get more from your snacks with protein.

* Discover how to ration your carbohydrates for maximum results.

Before you go any further, the first thing you must do is establish how many calories you are eating. If you are not sure then grab a little black book and start writing down everything which passes your lips for the next day. This will give you a general idea, it doesn’t need to be an exact science. Once you’ve established this you simply need to set a slight deficit to begin getting some general results. Chop around 200 calories from your existing total to begin with.

After that, you are ready to begin optimizing your intake of the three macronutrients. This means looking at your protein, carbs and fat intake. Obtain around 40% of your calories from protein, the same from carbohydrates and a 20% portion from mostly healthy fats. This is known as the 4-4-2 idea. []

Third on the list is water. If you don’t think you drink enough water than the chances are you’re right. Your muscles are mainly made up for water, so in order to get that lean, full look to them you need to ensure your water consumption is on point. To do this, fill two one liter bottles at the start of the day and work through them as the day progresses.

You can maximize your snacks by using protein rather than junk foods. Your body can utilize this for fuel far more effectively and it also enables you to protect your lean muscle tissue during a busy day at the office. Take two or three small tubs, each packed with a rich protein source such as tuna or whey protein, in your rucksack to work with you and enjoy them throughout your shift.

This will eliminate your temptation of using the vending machine.

Carbohydrates can be a major cause for concern, too. Many people hear myths such as “You shouldn’t eat carbs after 8pm”, or that you need to stop eating them altogether. The truth is your lifestyle is not compatible with the clock sometimes, and you should merely look to structure your carbohydrates around your busiest periods of the day.

Next, you should look to use high intensity interval training in your workout routine to take these results one step further. You can do this by jumping on a bike and setting the timer for 30 minutes, switching between a moderate intensity to a thirty second burst of maximal effort every four minutes.

Learning how to lose weight is an often confusing subject. With so many people giving different opinions on both diets and hiit workouts, sometimes it pays to put your faith in the latest science rather than following whatever the latest magazine trend is.
