    You wouldn't believe how much I sweat during belly dancing! Also, Tai-chi uses an extraordinary amount of energy for as little motion I use.

    Aerobic Weight Training burns a lot of calories (and is really fun!). I'm a fan of The Firm. You can usually find it at Target or in other retail stores.

    Running and kickboxing (Billy Blank's Tae Bo for example) are also major calorie burners.

    My weight loss experience taught me that I do better with very active exercises where I sweat a lot and you know feel like I'm doing some old-fashioned working out, regardless of how many calories are burned. Like dance aerobics. During the summer my teacher was a female hip-hop dancer and we did A LOT of booty shaking. I think it was awkward for the men in the class. Hahahaha.

    So any suggestions on crazy high calorie burning exercises? Someone else mentioned HIIT (high intensity interval training?) but I would like to do something not involving a gym... Unless it's a really posh gym with towel service and personal tvs, I can't stand being in a gym for more than 5 minutes.

    Thanks!
    Well, back before they banned it because of a few cardiac/heat stroke deaths, it was popular among midwestern kids in high-school wrestling programs to cut weight by popping ephedra and running on treadmills in winter parkas or, better, wearing latex bodysuits that prevent the evaporation of sweat.

    Geez, Roger. I didn't ask how I could lose 5 pounds in fluids. If I wanted to do that, I'd pop a handful of diuretics, cover myself in Saran Wrap and Abolene and hit the sauna for 4 or 5 hours.

    But, thanks for the suggestion.

    You kinky, kinky bastard.

    I bet I know what you're getting for Christmas!

    Dancing. Sex. Any active flexibility has me dripping.

    I adore the taste of sweat.

    This hasn't been posted on in awhile, but I'll throw in m two cents.

    Running is the easiest way to get your body fired up. It's a harder workout than almost any other activity. 800 calories for an hour and a half of yoga? I burn 800 calories running for 40 minutes. Less than half the time required.

    Of course, running for 40 minutes is harder than yoga, so....

    And the only equipment you need is a pair of running shoes.

    That's my favorite method. I lost over 100 pounds through diet, running, and weight lifting.

    Jump rope for 15 minutes. Jump higher and fast and I guarantee you will sweat.

    I'm amazed it's gotten this far without sex being mentioned....

    Anyhow, cycling is your best bet. Just don't do downhill or stupid stuff and you should tone up without f-ing up your features

    It's no good being a slim and "ripped" car crash victim
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
