I recently changed to weight training after about two years of doing hiit training. I wasn’t really watching what I was eating doing hiit - got down to around 65kg however I rocketed to 77kg.

So I decided to change training/eating regime and I’m now weight training twice per week and 1-2 hiit sessions. I’m down now at 72kg - still a long way to go I know!

So my question is do I stick with what I am
Doing or should I go all weight training or back to hiit? Which will help me the loose the most eat and eat the most food ??

Hiit is for stamina and weight is for strength one doesn’t out weigh the other

For weight loss a combo of both is perfect. Muscle building increases metabolism as does hiit to a certain extent.

If you have time, do 2 and 2 a week, that was always my go to.

Ultimately it comes to enjoyment and which one you will continue doing when you can't be bothered one morning!
