Single body part training?

After a 4 week "easing in" period I have started a heavy lifting rotation, problem I am having is that I'm pushed for time because I train first thing in the morning with a +/- 45 minute window, nice thing is the gym is in my garage! Bonus! However at current, having switched from 3sets of 10/12 to 4-5sets of 6/7 it's talking a bit longer for a back & biceps type grouping.
 
Therefore my question is, will it be more beneficial to focus on individual parts, for example:
Monday - Legs
Tuesday - Chest
Wednesday - Back
Thursday - Arms (Biceps and Triceps)
Friday Shoulders & Calves
 
My main aim is fat loss, I spend a lot of my weekend doing endurance training and I seriously have been enjoying the weight lifting, there is a sense of enjoyment in feeling "sore" if that makes sense...
 
Any advice is appreciated, Thank you!

Pressed for time and going for fat loss? I strongly recommend against isolating body parts, and instead stick with basic compound lifts. IE don't bother with a biceps workout, just do lots of chin ups.

2 on 1 off, something like

Upper
Lower
Off
Repeat.

Cardio on off days if you wish, eat well and you'll get greater fat loss than you would from a body part spilt.

If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.

Upper/Lower/Cardio/Upper/Lower/Cardio/Rest is a good plan.

I agree on the upper lower split or push/pull/legs is quite a nice one and the workouts aren't as long

Yes push, pull legs is a good one. Session length might depend on sets and reps !
