There's no way for anyone to answer this question who doesn't know you and your level of fitness.  If you work out too hard, you can injure yourself if you're not an experienced athlete or used to working out.  If you're just starting out, you start out slowly, and work your way up to a level you can handle, again, without injuring yourself.  But keep in mind, what we call exercise is only necessary if you live a sedentary life and eat a poor diet.  People who live active lives, for example, walk to work or bicycle to work, walk to shop, have jobs where they move around a lot, which is the way people have lived for most of history, "exercise" isn't really a part of their lives.  But in our society, we tend to sit around most of the time which is what makes exercise more important.  Also, nobody needs to lose weight fast -- losing weight fast will just come back again.  What you want is to lose weight slowly by permanently changing your diet and lifestyle, including exercise, so that it becomes your regular way of living and the weight stays off.  If you're new to exercising, think back tow when you were very young -- you played, right?  That's one way to exercise -- play sports, run, walk, bicycle, etc.  Another way is to go to a gym and do more formal exercise, where you can have a few sessions with a personal trainer to get you started at a level you can handle and grow with.  Good luck.

I'm a firm believer hat diet is a bigger predictor to weigh loss than working out.  It's important, don't get me wrong. But what we eat has the biggest impact.  I believe they say 80 percent of weight is based on diet, 20 percent on exercise.  

You an lose weight fast with diet but be careful of this.  That is often short term.  

Cardio works very well for weight loss quickly but really, weight bearing exercises and weight lifting keep burning calories AFTER you are done, cardio's effect is over as soon as you are done with it. So, incorporate some weight lifting with cardio and you are going to see improvement.  good luck

For loosing weight you have to workout for 60 minutes a day including 30 minutes of walk. Also you have to maintain your diet by taking low calorie meals. For more discussion visit https://forum.healthlibrary.in/

The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst.
This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle.
I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20 Minutes
What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter
It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body. The links are http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=zy7j9FRiJpg&list=PL9FxWnfq1Oyo9pHHUPHeQne4iqoZ4zTN  _

Figure your heart rate by this formula The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
an example of the Karvonen formula for a 23 year old person with a resting heart rate of 65 beats per minute (*to get your resting heart rate, take your pulse for one full minute when you first wake up in the morning or after you've resting for a while). This formula also includes an updated calculation of maximum heart rate (the previous formula was 220 - age, which has now been shown to be inaccurate):
206.9 - (0.67 x 23 (age)) = 191 191 - 65 (resting heart rate) = 126 126 * 65% (low end of heart rate zone) OR 85% (high end) = 82 OR 107 82 + 65 (resting heart rate) = 147 107 + 65 (rhr) = 172 The target heart rate zone for this person would be 147 to 172
First thing in the morning before you get out of bed have a clock with a second hand and check your resting heart rate then figure your rate by the Karvonen Formula above.
You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own.

You would like to lose weight through your long time of working. That's really great idea and hope it will work. But my opinion is to work hard until the sweat came out. Because if you sweating again and again then you can lose weight.

Well, it really depends on you really. If your eager enough to lose weight, you can probably do it with proper exercise and balanced diet as well. You need to have a healthy lifestyle first. When it comes to everyday workout, I believe a 30 minute-jogging which is a daily routine is enough. If your a gym enthusiast, you can probably have a trainer in order for you to be guided in your workout. I usually spend 3-4 hours in the gym and I can say that I really lose weight and get slimmed fast because I also accompanied it with a balanced diet. I disciplined myself and get focused on my goal which is to have a healthier and sexier body.

A pound is 3,500 calories. Figure out your bmi and see how many calories you can cut that remains at a healthy level, and work out the rest of the calories. If you just work out, 500 calories everyday will lose you a lb a week. A 5 or 6 mile walk should burn 500 depending on your age, gender, and weight.
