weight training and hiit

I've put on a few pounds around the belly over Xmas and need to shift it. I do 4 days weights already (chest/tri, back/biceps, shoulders, legs) and was thinking of doing 2 to 3 30 mins sessions a week to shift the flab. Was going to stick to 2750 cals on weights days and 2100/2200 cals on hiit days. 
Will this work ok?

    Training wise it should be good, HIIT is great for burning fat... can't comment on the cals because you don't mention your weight or what you currently consume.

    whats working for me at the moment is fasted weights in the morning followed by 10mins of sprints 30secs on 20rest. i make sure to start consuming my BCAA's and 5g creatine 15mins before i workout until it runs out intra workout, i then top it up with normal water and keep sipping until sprints as its important to keep hydrated.
    can also be done with cross trainer or on a bike. I also fire in 1 strongman session a week and thinking of upping it to two ... but I've started prep for a show so strongman could be a little too much too soon for yourself but its always an option i suppose.
    Consistency is key here as changes don't happen over night they take time but after 3 weeks of putting hard work in the small changes will be noticed no doubt about it.
