Missing the point. Weight loss is about diet.

Re: best thing for fat burn

Jeff is right, diet is the main thing to look at and will be the primary driver of any fat loss program, but exercise does have an effect and not all effects appear to be equal.

At least a couple of smaller studies have found that high intensity work led more effectively to fat loss than low intensity work (cardio), for whatever reason. To quote part of a past post of mine:

Quote:
Study #1: Impact of exercise intensity on body fatness and skeletal muscle metabolism. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8028502 (WFS)

"Despite its lower energy cost, the [high-intensity intermittent-training] program induced a more pronounced reduction in subcutaneous adiposity [i.e. the fat layer under the skin] compared with the [endurance-training] program."


Study #2: The effects of high-intensity intermittent exercise training on fat loss and fasting insulin levels of young women http://unsworks.unsw.edu.au/vital/ac.../unsworks:2474 (WFS)

"subjects were randomly assigned to one of three groups: HIIE (n = 15), steady state exercise (SSE; n=15), or control (CONT; n=15) . . .
RESULTS: both exercise groups demonstrated a significant improvement, P < 0.05, in cardiovascular fitness. However, only the HIIE group had a significant reduction in total body mass (TBM), fat mass (FM), trunk fat, and fasting plasma insulin levels."
These didn't examine mode, so whether CF style metcons would be better than sprinting/rowing/airdyne at the same intensity is an open question.

3000kcal of healthy food is still 3000kcal.

It doesn't matter if you just eat food from better sources if you don't also decrease your actual caloric intake.
