Your Favorite Weight Loss / Fat Burn Exercise ??

I am revamping my exercise regime and trying to get the right balance for optimal weight loss through fat burn and am at a bit of crossroad.

I would love to know
1 - What is your fave cardio workout (elliptical / tread / ?)
2 - How long do you do it for?
3 - How many times / week
4 - How many resistance / weights days do you have?

I absolutely love doing the elliptical machine. I do it for 30 minutes 5 days a week. I find myself trying to constantly improve my distance. Once I'm comfortable with the time, I just up it 5 more minutes. I lift weights 3 to 4 times a week, but I try to alternate between lower and upper body. At least 1 day I do whole body. Another way is to change it up. Try a new work out dvd or a new machine. It actually helps, because you end up using different muscles and get a more varied workout.

Is anyone increasing fruits and vegetables or is everyone keeping the usual.
I have 4 fruits and 7 vegetables and I'm wondering if I should add more vegetables

1- Treadmill for walking and running
2- About 40 miles a week, on average 90 mins a day
3- Six days a week
4- Three weight sessions + 1 yoga class (it's a type of resistance training)

To 9:57... no you "shouldn't" eat more, but you can if you want to. Just make sure you're getting a variety so that you don't OD on certain vitamins, and keep an eye on the starchy ones.
