One may need to follow a more vigorous diet plan to lose weight along with an exercise regime.
You need to determine the body fat percentage and total calorie requirements. There is a distinct way to find out the total fat in the body in men:
Note down the weight and waist size. The body weight has to be multiplied by 1.082, then add 94.42 and save the number. Next multiply the waist size by 4.15 and subtract the result from the first saved number. The difference between this number and your current body weight is the total fat content in your body.
Similarly, there is a formula to calculate the fat content in women too. A diet plan to lose fat should be divided according to the days you work out. On cardio days, fat will be lost faster if you work on an empty stomach and on weight training days, carb intake should be higher to provide enough energy. Make sure to have a diet containing 50%, 30-35% of carbs and the remainder in the form of healthy fats.
