A well planned diet can be very effective for weight loss. Diet is as important to this routine as performing each exercise with as much intensity as possible. For an individual to see visible weight loss from this fat burning workout plan, it is necessary to eat a clean and healthy diet to enhance results. With a fat burning routine it is very important to take twice amount of protein.

Try Carb Backloading: carb backloading is a tactical diet approach to get the biggest weight loss benefit out of every one of your workouts. In carb backloading you limit carbohydrates through the day and wait to consume carbohydrates after a workout or much later in the day. When you eat carbs after a workout it will used as a fuel to muscle cells, this minimize the storage of carbs in fat cells.
The theory behind carb backloading is very simple, when you rest, the hormone called Insulin bring most of the carbs to fat cells where it is stored as fat. But after a workout you will be in high activity state, so most of the carbs are delivered to muscles. Each night while you sleep, your body start burning fat. If you don’t consume carbs at your first meal, this fat burning continues.
It is also important to have one moderate carb loading day/week to confuse the body, thus stimulating metabolism and fat loss. You need to eat a clean and strict diet to maintain proper calorie intake to stimulate the fat loss you are looking for. Heavy carbs and processed foods should be stayed away. Drink plenty of water while performing this as drinking water helps to keep up your metabolism and hydrate your muscle tissues. Combining these diet strategies with your workouts will give a boost to your weight loss journey.
