    Cardio below your metabolic threshold (where you stop burning fat and start burning sugar only). You should do cardio to get you to your metabolic threshold and then lift-its the best way! The metabolic threshold test is like $100-$200 but soo worth it from what they say, im looking into too.

    -when you workout more, eat better and burn extra calories your metabolism has to readjust because its burning too many or too little calories so after say 6 months of working out oyu have to keep your body guessing like with interval training. (3 Mins regular pace, 1 minute hard/fast pace –with cardio). best of luck!

    Cardio is better for fat loss. however weight lifting adds muscle to your body so you will burn more calories even in your sleep so a mixture is what you need but cardio the best.
    When we exercise our metabolism increases due to the amount of energy needed for that activity be it cardio or weights.
    Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that occur in living organisms to maintain life (give energy).

    While you are losing weight, strength training allows you to maintain your muscle mass. Maintaining your muscle mass, allows you to keep your metabolic rate up.

    However, you should choose the one you like the most. If you like Cardio more, do Cardio. If you like Weights, do Weights.

    If you hate or love both, then mix it up.

    The key is that you do the activities you enjoy the most, or dislike the least. The more you like it, the more you’ll do it. Then the weight loss will follow.
