**What Is The Best Weight Loss Diet Plan For Men?**

When it comes to finding a weight loss diet plan for men, you want the best, right? In this video, I dive into 10 key principles that make a weight loss diet for men effective, simple and sustainable. If it is all of these things, you can be sure it’s the best and will help you achieve your weight loss results.

*#1 – Which Diet Is Best?

If you’ve heard of all the different types of diet out there, like Paleo, Low-Carb, Vegan or Vegetarian, or the Caveman Diet, you want to know which one to follow. Essentially, you want to follow a diet that isn’t restrictive, if you want to follow it long term. Your diet should be balanced with all the macronutrients (Protein, Carbs, and Fat), along with vegetables.

*#2 – Build ‘Perfect Plates’

Following on from principle #1, you should use the balanced approach of ALL the macronutrients to prepare ‘perfect plates’, which is a guide to how you should portion these. A ‘perfect plate’ is simply ¼ plate Protein, ¼ plate of Carbs, ½ plate Vegetables and a small serving of healthy fats.

*#3 – The 4 x 4 Meal Timing Strategy

This strategy basically means that you should have 4 meals per day, spaced 4 hours apart. This could be breakfast at 8am, Lunch at 12pm, Snack at 4pm and Dinner at 8pm. This setup helps to keep your blood sugar stable, helping to control cravings and keeps your metabolism high the whole day too. This, paired with the ‘perfect plates’ also controls your calorie intake without you needing to count calories.

*#4 – Eat a low-carb breakfast

This is the only small tweak to the ‘perfect plates’ principle, which is for breakfast you should eat a low-carb meal. This helps kick-start your metabolism at the beginning of the day and helps hormone levels that let you know you’re satiated. Protein and healthy fats do this much better than carbs, so you’ll feel full until your next meal.

*#5 – Pick your 3 “Go-To Foods”

Picking your ‘go-to’ foods is basically the easiest way to ensure consistency when following a weight loss diet plan for men over 40. This is simply picking your favorite foods within each of the macronutrient categories. In our free 1-day meal plan, I explain exactly how to do this →

*#6 – Plan one free meal each week

Another approach that makes this the best weight loss diet plan is allowing yourself 1 pre-planned meal each week that is a free meal. You don’t need to follow the perfect plates principle or worry about what macronutrients it contains. This one small indulgence each week will keep your diet plan sustainable over the long term.

*#7 – Hit your ideal water target

When you’re following a weight loss diet for men over 40, you need to consider hydration as well as food intake, so you should set a target of around 100–150 oz of water each day. Water keeps you full, and it keeps your metabolism going by keeping your liver clear to metabolize fat.

*#8 – Time calories around workouts

This is a great tip that you don’t often hear, but timing your calories around workouts means eating your meal after your workout. For example, if you work out in the morning, do so fasted, then eat breakfast. If you train in the evening, have your dinner straight afterward. Timing your free meal for after a workout is great advice too.

*#9 – Track your weight & adjust portions

Tracking your weight at least twice per week is beneficial to keep an eye on how your weight loss diet plan for men is working. If you weigh yourself Thursday and Sunday, for example, you’ll be able to see trends that occur around any changes or deviations you’ve made throughout the week. It also offers positive feedback loops as you see progress.

*#10 – Eat more Cholesterol

Eating more cholesterol can sound a bit counter-intuitive, but cholesterol rich foods like eggs will help balance your cholesterol levels as well as testosterone levels, which is super important as a man over 40, looking to lose weight.

Wishing you every success on your journey.
