If you want to lose weight, you need to do the kind of exercise that gets you panting – and your heart pumping hard.

Get at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity five days per week, or 20 minutes of more vigorous activity three days per week. You should break into a sweat, but still be able to carry on a conversation, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.

Crank it up to 60 minutes five times a week once you’re used to the intensity, for better weight loss results. Then add sprinting intervals on the treadmill on non-consecutive days to burn more calories and belly fat.

“Alternate ‘hard’ and ‘light’ days of exercise. For example, if you run considerably faster and farther than usual on a particular day, take the next day off or decrease the duration and/or intensity of your next workout,” advises Joan Liew, director and personal trainer at Fitness Factory.
