    Hi, i need to lose some gut fat. But not been motivated or active for a little while. Surprise, surprise I have fat now.

    I'm told cardio is good by some, not by others. Weights burns more calories but don't actually know what I should be committed to.

    Can anyone advise, even if it's a set of precise exercises or a routine or a principle that will surely see results, i would love to know as I'm guessing others would too.

    Want to look as good and feel as healthy as many on here I'm sure.

    Thanks

    Eat less, eat healthy, workout lifting heavy weights 4 days a week, get cardio 3 days a week.

    I think 1 or 2 days of cardio is enough.
    OP, look for HIIT routine. With HIIT you won't have to do any cardio etc. Try doing it for 2-3 days in a week.

    Here, I found one link with a simple google:

    Ya, you're probably right. I do a fair amount of cardio before I lift partly to warm up, partly to lose weight, partly to let the supplements kick in, and then some more after to burn the lactic acid.

    Cardio or aerobic activity is best for burning fat. Weight training to build muscle is good to help sustain remaining lean due to the fact that a muscular body at rest burns more fat than a less muscular body
