What are the best exercises for weight loss and burning fat? Would an elliptical machine be good for these purposes? What kind of program?

Aerobic + weight: A combo of aerobic (cardiovascular) +weight bearing (build muscles) exercises along with proper/balanced diet is probably the best, but some is better than nothing.

I used to have back pain. Can I use the stepper machine to lose weight? . Or is it harmful for my back?

Yes: A stepper machine should be fine, especially if progressively increased in difficulty. For my patients with back/joint pain, I generally recommend avoiding impact activities such as running.

See your physician if you are unable to exercise without severe pain. ...Read more
