Fat loss diet question

Just have a quick question regardIng fat loss diets. If I intend to lose fat and gain some muscle, I know that you need to eat more proteins for the muscle gaining bit, but for the fat loss bit is it better to consume less calories or do I have to consume less fat and carbs too? Will a low-calorie, high-carb diet result in fat loss?

Sorry if it's a stupid question, I'm a bit of a newbie :D

Hi, welcome to Minimins. The shakes I use (Sci-MX Diet), are low carb (19g per serving), low cal (approx 170ish cal) per serving, and high protein. They help maintain healthy muscle mass, whilst helping me lose weight.

If you are looking to lose fat and toning a bit then understand that it doesn't have to be that complicated.

A rough meal plan should be something like this:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs made with low fat milk and zero added oil/fat with vegetables on a slice of wholemeal toast
Snack: Fruit & yogurt
Lunch: Tuna salad wrap - again, no added butter/mayo/fatty dressing.
Snack: Low fat cheese piece and cherry tomatoes
Dinner: Oven roasted pepper stuffed with cous cous and served with a dry fried/grilled chicken breast
Evening snack: Small scoop of mixed fruit &nuts

Make sure all your food (except lean meats, oily fish, eggs & oats) are less than 5% fat and don't add any fats (butter/oil/marg etc) to cooking/sandwiches etc.

Portion Control!!!

My trainer told me that sample menu plan was best for fat loss and toning. You shouldn't need to buy protein shakes at all.
