That’s one of the reasons why working out for 30 minutes is great – it’s long enough to get a great workout done and burn significant calories without leaving you feeling like you want to eat your entire fridge.

It’s that sweet spot where your calorie deficit can thrive without having to exercise extreme self discipline in not over-eating – make sense?

A few tips to prevent "out-eating" your gains:

  • Don’t over-train (5 x 30 minute workouts per week is perfect!)

  • Drink lots of water.

  • If you're new to training, just continue eating the same way that you were before you start

ed training - don't start a new training routine along with a new diet, you're setting yourself up for failure.

  • Don’t try eat too healthily - we often try eat healthier (which is great!) but we end up eating way more because it’s healthy, so the calorie deficit that we created with our workout get’s out-eaten. Even if its healthy, its still got calories!

  • Workout at a high intensity for a short period of time - quality over quantity.

  • Don't train for longer than 30 minutes - if you feel that 30 minutes isn't long enough or challenging enough for you, try these 3 tips:

  • include more jumps in your workout

  • lift heavier weights

  • limit your rest intervals strictly
