What is the best exercise for burning calories and losing weight?

I have been doing the elliptical machine for 35-45 minutes 5 days per week. I’m wondering if there are any more efficient excercise machines or cardio workouts for burning calories or losing weight. I am also a little concerned about reaching a plateau in my workouts and I’m looking for ways to switch things up without losing endurance…

    I think lifting is a very efficient way of burning calories as well as any type of cardio where you change your pace in intervals. Try the elliptical machine on the interval training. Then maybe switch it up and go on the treadmil, run a mile, walk a mile on an incline…those slight changes makes your heart beat faster and burn more calories. Also lifting is really good…those short bursts of energy with down time really burns a lot too…sometimes even more than cardio. Try alternating every day between things so your body doesn’t get too used to the same pattern. Even try an areobics or spin class…those are good too!

    Biking, Kick boxing, doing weightlifting, Belly dancing, stair climbing, just anything with some resistance should help. If you also alternate exercises you will see more results too because your body gets use to a certain amount of exercises after a while.

    Running will increase your per hour calorie burn if you work hard enough. Running supports your entire body weight where a bike or swimming doesn’t. Running is pound-for-pound the best cardio available.

    The biggest component to weight loss is going to be your workout. You will want to make sure you do a good (30 minute minimum) cardio workout every day for weight loss (3 times a week is sufficient to maintain health). Activities that use the large leg muscles burn the most calories. These activities also tone the lower body quite effectively. Think in terms of power walking, jogging, biking, skating, swimming laps, jumping rope, dancing, racquetball, and jumping jacks. To make sure that you’re burning fat, you need to be sweating and huffing and puffing. In addition, do some good stretches and some strength training.
    Your right to want to switch things up as your metabolism does get used to a routine and then slows down. I would do the elliptical twice a week and something else the other days. Good luck!

    Cardio. Cardio is an important part of weight loss. If you’re serious about losing weight, but don’t want to do the cardio workouts, then you are requiring your diet to do all of the work. Jog, walk, swim, jump rope, ride a bike, take an aerobics class, whatever… cardio + proper diet = better than just doing one of the two. All it takes is 30 minutes a day, 3 – 5 days a week. I say 3-5 days a week because I don’t know if you have 5 pounds to lose, or if you have 50 pounds to lose. So, depending on how much your looking to lose, figure it out. 3 times a week is good starting point though.

    STRENGTH TRAINING! YES! Weightlifting isn’t just great for muscles, it’s great for losing weight. Muscles burn calories.
