First, 40 days is a short time , and you shouldn't expect a miracle. The normal rate of weight loss is 3-4 kg per month, no more.

Secondly, if you come back from workout and eat a frying pan of fried potatoes, then do not expect the result.

You will lose weight will be when there is a calorie deficit . Those. you will burn more calories per day than you consume. This is achieved by sports and proper nutrition, with food being in the first place .

Eliminate fried foods, fast food, convenience foods, unnatural sweets, any fast carbohydrates from the diet.

In the morning, eat porridge with lean meat or fish (baked, boiled, stewed). In the second, focus on protein foods. For example, for dinner you can eat a slice of chicken breast with stewed vegetables or a portion of cottage cheese.

When it comes to training, the fastest result is running , it burns a lot of calories. But you can also lose weight on power ones. Take a small weight and do many reps on each set of the exercise (15 to 25-60 times). It is better to contact a trainer who will create a program based on your health condition, amount of excess weight, etc.

For a start, 40 days is not a lot. It is not important how long you have been training, it is important to follow the basic principles of bodybuilding, that is, to constantly increase the load, thereby creating stress for the body. It is also impossible to burn fat and build muscle at the same time if you are not a professional athlete. You should focus on one specific outcome and build your workout and diet according to your chosen goal.

Well, most likely you do not follow a diet, or rather you consume more calories than you spend, which means that your stomach does not go away. Eat fewer calories than you expend. Nothing complicated.
