  • i have to disagree with a lot of your answers you want to flush the fat before you tone your muscles and heres why...if you want to loose weight you dont want to build muscle mass because it weighs more than fat plus theres no point in toning your muscles untill you loose the body fat because you cant see it. cardio is the best way to burn fat i would say treadmill is the best

  • Cardio alone won't do it. But the best cardio I've ever done was belly dancing. I have this video that has basic moves (a great workout) and a fitness section (really intense cardio). I like it because it works the whole body.

    To lose weight even quicker you should use weights. You don't need to go heavy or get buff. But weights help you lose fat and gain muscle fast (and your muscles won't get big unless you use steroids or something).

    Doing both is best.

  • Swimming is an excellent way to lose fat and tone your muscles. It's low-impact so I like to trade out my cardio sessions and swim occasionally instead of wrecking my knees on the treadmill/stairmaster.

    I agree with amethystrse though; you'll need to throw some weights into your routine in order to really burn off excess body fat.

  • as long as your heart rate is high, it's that big of a deal for a beginner. The row machine is a tough one, but running is also good.

    pick up weight lifting

  • I like the cardiotwister, it really works if you use it at least 3 times a week. www.cardiotwister.com I have lost 50 pounds in about 4 months and still loosing. I haven't really changed my diet, if I eat something with alot of calories I just workout a little longer.
