Cardio Mix: You cannot target specific areas for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio & a balanced diet.

Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more

They Don't: There is no evidence from controlled clinical trials that these machines work. If you want to lose weight you need to: 1. Do daily exercise for at least 30 minutes, at an intensity sufficient to make you short of breath (get cleared by your doc first) 2. Reduce your daily calorie intake to under 1600 for a man and 1200 for a woman. ...Read more

I'm not sure: I don't know of any real studies that compare the two methods. Some types of apparatus used in pilates machine classes definitely offer resistance training, as well as stretching and flexibility. It would also depend on how high a resistance or how heavy a weight is used, as well as the number of times (repetitions) the exercise is repeated. Strength training is probably best to build muscle. ...Read more

Cardiovascular: For burning calories, increasing your basal metabolic rate, and increasing endurance, cardiovascular activity is the answer for weight loss. Resistance training can of course be combined with cardio, but does not burn as many calories, tends to increase lean muscle, and tone your appearance. Since muscle weights more than fat, you may actually experience an increase in weight with weight training. ...Read more
On a low calorie diet, will your body burn muscle before using fat stores for energy eg. Love handles and belly fat?
Partially: Any exercise can contribute to weight loss. Stationary cycling can burn 400-500 calories/hr; one pound is 3500 calories, so you would have to exercise 8-9 hrs to burn up 1 pound. Diet is a necessary component to weight loss. There is no way to 'spot exercise' to lose fat in any certain area. Good luck. Consistency is the key. Exercise and diet both play important roles in weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
