Is riding a stationary bike going to help me lose the unwanted fat?

I just started riding a stationary bike and wanted to know if it will help me lose the unwanted fat in the stomach and legs. I know this may sound funny but is there something better to lose it faster. and about how long should i ride for.
I want to look good for myself and my wife and need tips on toning up and losing the fat.

    Weight loss is very simple, burn more calories than you take in. If you ride a stationary bike for 3 hours and then eat 3 pizzas, maybe not. Weight is lost all over the body so you cannot target one area over another per say. You CAN train body parts and make then more flexible and tone and then as the weight is shed you will see the results you want. Don’t be discouraged if initially you loose in other areas, this is common. Stick with it and eat a good diet. Consistency is the key. To really attack fat, try varied exercises with different intensities. Interval training is one of the most effective ways to boost fat loss. The body will eventually plateau when conducting a repetitive motion at the same pace; it becomes business as usual and gains fall off. This is when most people give up. “Trick” the body by doing some other exercises for the “problem” areas (Pilate’s or yoga, walking, jogging adding speed and inclines periodically, resistance/weight training, stairs). Drink plenty of water! Good luck!

    Hey Matthew,
    A stationary bike will help you lose weight, so will walking, jogging, swimming, rock climbing or any one of a dozen aerobic exercises. None is truly better or worse than any other, as long as you do them consistently and with enough effort to raise your heart rate to the levels needed for fat burning, and stay there for 20-30 minutes (or more if you can). Please, always pay attention to your body while you are exercising, if you are feeling pain, stop and try and figure out why. The last thing you want to do is injure yourself while exercising,
    –Good Luck and I wish you every success

    Sure, it can be a good cardio workout. Ride at an intensity that leaves you sweating, huffing and puffing. This page gives you more info. on exercise bikes and then some more exercises to target certain areas:
