Any!: Actually, let's first not forget the importance of healthy nutrition when it comes to weight loss. After that, any exercise done regularly is better than none. Heck, start w/walking 5-10-15-20-30min each time. Build your endurance then add speed. I'm not paid to endorse them but check out http://www.menshealth.com/fitness for any number of exercise (programs) aimed at weight loss. Intensity is key
