Answer by mysteirizx
longer i think will burn fat
harder will build muscle, you’ll look more firm but you wont see a drop in weight because muscle weighs more than fat

    I say a little bit tough but not to where you tire yourself quick, take things in moderation.

    A slow jog for 20 mins is better than running fast for 15 mins. Because our body only starts burning carbo after 30 mins so always aim over 30 mins and thus you dont wanna tire yourself out..i still think swimming is the best exercise.

    more intense
    make sure you focus on more than one area when excercising or you may not get the result wanted or could become unproportional

    I say that starting out slowly and building up to a more intensive cardio workout is a great way to do it. I will do treadmill for instance, go for a total of 30 minutes. Do a 5 minute warm up, go into 20 minutes of cardio and then do a 5 min cool down. Depending on your fitness level, you can increase your cardio time if you are able to. I do cardio 5 days a week. Most fitness experts will say 20 min of straight cardio is a good start. Also weight training is imporant as well. i follow my cardio with 20-30 minutes of weights 6 days a week. I alternate upper & lower body and do abs with my lower body workouts.

    Whatever burns the most calories.

    The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

    *1) Burn more calories then you’re consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

    Get a diet and fitness calculator that you can put on your computer or cell phone. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

    Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
    Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
    Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

    It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

    *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

    Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

    Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow: http://www.rayandterry.com/html/images/PyramidLRG.gif?osCsid=26a424be471d1337e7c2f105d5c64d9d

    *3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.

    Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure your doing all resistance training exercises correctly.

    A good book to buy that teaches you the cardiovascular training basics is “Fitness for Dummies”.

    *4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

    *5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A superb book to read is “You The Owner’s Manual”. An excellent periodic publication is the “Nutrition Action Health Letter”.
