What's the most effective to burn fat?

I am a very active guy but I am over weight. I weight train and have a 40-60 daily cardio routine that i mix in with weight training. Also I play soccer and basketball. I am 235 lbs, and I want to lose my belly and man boobs. What can I do? I drink a lot of water, and no soda. What can I do? I am at a loss? I don't want to go on a strict diet with like raw veggies and salad all day. I need meat and carbs. If I cut it out of my diet, I get weak and I can't get my full work out. So basically is there a way where I can burn fat and not go on a crazy diet or is some crazy diet the only way to go? If so what? Thanks.

The more muscle mass you have, the faster you will burn fat. This is precisely why men lose weight faster than women do: they have a greater percentage of muscle mass vs fat on their bodies. So, that right there works in your favor.

Now, you're already lifting weights, which will help build more muscle. Make sure you strength train only every other day; your muscles need a day to relax and repair. You're also doing a decent amount of daily cardio. This is great and is the best way to burn fat. You're really giving your body the one-two punch. But the question is, are you doing it at the right intensity? You need vigorous exercise in order to lose weight. Build up a sweat, check that your heart-rate is in its target zone, and try to talk while you're working out. If you have trouble talking (without feeling like you're going to keel over), then you're doing it at the right intensity.

The only thing left is your diet. There is no need to give up meat OR carbs. In fact, your body absolutely needs both protein and carbs. (Protein for the building and repair of muscle tissue, as well as stamina; carbs for proper brain function and essential quick-energy.) What's important is the TYPE of each you are eating.

Examples of healthy proteins:
pinto and black beans
lean meats (chicken, turkey, fish, venison, buffalo, and if you must, beef with all visible fat trimmed off)
low-fat cottage cheese
low-fat yogurt (non-sweetened)
skim milk

Examples of complex (or good) carbohydrates:

whole grains: 100% whole wheat, rolled oats, brown rice, buckwheat, whole barley, oat bran
fruit: apples, dried apricots, strawberries, oranges, grapefruit, pears, plums
vegetables: carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, eggplant, cauliflower, zucchini, asparagus
legumes: lentils, pinto beans, soybeans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, navy beans, black beans, split peas
dairy: low-fat yogurt, skim milk

Examples of simple (or bad) carbs:
table sugar
corn syrup (and anything that contains it)
fruit juice (unless it's 100% pure juice NOT from concentrate)
white bread
white pasta
white rice
most packaged cereals (esp. Those with added sugars)
all baked goods made with white flour
and pretty much most desserts and pastries
soda pop

It's good you're not drinking soda. That's like public-enemy #1 when it comes to weight loss. The other thing I just thought of is are you eating enough?? This sounds a bit daft, at first. But the truth is if you're exercising like crazy but not fueling your body with the proper amount of calories, then your body goes into a sort-of starvation mode state. It will actually STOP losing weight and hold onto whatever fat reserves you have. Talk to your doctor. Get a physical and ask him what is the proper amount of calories for someone your age, weight and height. You didn't mention your height so I can't tell you what is proper for you.

As for your belly and excessive chest, shall we say… Sadly, there's no way to "spot-reduce" any part of your body. You can only burn fat over all of your body, and do specific exercises to tone muscle in the parts you want tightened. So, do daily crunches, making sure to work the obliques (the side abs), as well. Do bench-presses, rowing, and similar weight lifts to work your pecs. Once you start to lose the fat, the muscle you begin to develop will start showing through, giving you the overall tone you desire.

Good luck to you. You're doing a great job so far. Keep it up!

Best exercises to burn fat without building muscle?

Cardio is a big part of burning fat (running, biking, swimming, kickboxing, walking etc), but so is weight training because the more muscle you have, the faster calories will burn because muscle takes a lot more upkeep than fat does.

I'm assuming you're worried about bulking up because that's what every girl who's trying to lose weight on here is worried about. It is next to impossible for women to really bulk up…we can't even get close to the amount men can. The reason for this is because testosterone is needed for muscle to really build and while women do have a small amount of testosterone in them, we mainly produce estrogen. We can weight train all we want and we'll never have huge arms. We'll just have tons of muscle (keep in mind, that doesn't bulge out) to aid us in our weight loss.

I highly suggest adding weight training to your workout at least 2-3 times a week. You'd be surprised how much it'll help you. And if you're really worried about bulking up, just do 6-8 different exercises; 2 sets of 15 reps each and do the same with wall push-ups instead o regular ones. This will work your muscles but not enough to build them up.

Another plus about weight training, it helps with arm flab…which all women have a problem with. Seriously think about it.

Do men burn calories faster than women when working out?

The reason I ask this is I go to the gym frequently with my male colleague and it looks like he always burns 3x of the calories when we're both on the same machine, at the same pace at the same time. For example we were onthe air walker today for 30 minutes, after 30 minutes it says on his machine he's burned 720 calories and mine was only 220? I don't understand as I give as much effort and push, any explanation?

In general, men do burn more calories than women. It is mainly due to the larger muscle mass that men have as well as their general larger body mass. Muscles need a lot of energy to work and are actually inefficient. The more muscle you have the more energy you burn. Larger people also burn more calories because they have to move more mass during the motion. The body also regulates its fat deposits so that they dont get too low, thinner people loose less weight. Fitter muscles are more efficient, the reason lance armstrong doesnt loose 10kg during his tour de france.
Unfortunately for you, it is just a fact, women loose less weight than men do with the same effort.
