The most harmful misconception is that more is better, especially when it comes to cardio. Spending hours on end running, cycling and that D@*N elliptical! Particularly, continuous, low-intensity cardio, can be counterproductive. It can cause the body to hold on to its energy sources … for fear that it will need them for future long, continuous exertions.

 

Instead, try adding in short bursts of high-intensity exercises (also known as high-intensity interval training or HIIT) has been shown to burn fat, and lots of it. Thirty minutes of HIIT is much more efficient and effective than an hour of steady-state cardio…And I can personally attest, you will be huffing and puffing!
