What is the best method to dropping pounds? cardio or strength training? Or does your shape matter?


I have heard that a 30 minute high impact work out, combining strength and cardio training is best, that 30 minutes is all the workout time we need. Do this method work for everyone or does it really have anything to do with your body type?

    However, the low calorie diet is very difficult to maintain. An MD I know said that low fat, high fiber allows you to eat more and still lose weight. High fiber foods are satisfying and quite filling & also contain less calories. A win-win.

    You are describing a low-carbohydrate diet, which works for diabetics, but tends to be limiting for the average person..

    Excellent advice! I couldn't agree with you more. If I were forced to choose one over the other, I would go with strength training. But luckily, most people are free to incorporate cardio too.
