short, fast run.
basically
HIIT
high intensive, interval training.

For example I do HIIT on a stationary bicycle. You get use one in a nearby gym or buy a stationary bicycle for your home.

10 minutes - You pedal like crazy for 20secs, then rest for 10sec.
do this for 20 cycles.
it is VERY tiring. VERY exhausting.
but its only 10 minutes!
short and sweet.

After this, u will be burnt out, rest for about 1 minute.

Then go to the treadmill (if you have one) walk upslope (inclined slope) at a comfortable pace, slightly faster than normal walking but not a pace that will make you sweat.
Just walk for 30minutes at this pace. You will burn a lot more calories than if you were to jog for 40 minutes.

This is just a simple example of a HIIT type. I did this personally for a few months and had burnt off all my tummy fats.

You can find lots of other HIIT activities....

its not. ur body will get more and more efficient as you run, hence burning the least amount of energy to maintain the pace.

Its only sudden burst of movement that ur body burns the most. and because its sudden, the body continues to burn even AFTER your activity stops, because the body wants to maintain the perked up status in case it is a "fight or flight" status.
hence the long walk upslope AFTER 10 minutes of HIIT.
that long walk of 30 minutes will burn an inproporation amount of calories compared to if u had just jog 30 minutes without any HIIT

I have stationary bicycle at home but I don't have a treadmill. Any substitute for this part that can be done at home? Thanks :)

If you wish to burn even more calories...try short sprints up a hill. You are working on your stamina, as well as your glutes.. double whacky win, I'd say.

This is what i usually do if I'm in a mood to kill myself - 10 sets of 100m hill sprints. Fort canning hill has some pretty good spots.

So what you do is you sprint up the hill, and then jog back slowly down for recovery. Repeat this, and you are well on your way to sweating like a pig - but loving it after, of course!

to burn fat you need to get your heart rate beating fast. slow, easy and long jogs that doesn't give you the cardio-factor will not help you burn fat at all. but for first-timers please go easy on yourself with HIIT. you wanna burn fat, not kill your heart.

Nutrition , sleep enough, training .
Eat the right type of food ( no junk food / fast food sugared drinks)
In the right amount (1800-2200cal)

Diets sap willpower and are detrimental in the long run as it is unsustainable.

Sleeping is 1/3 of the equation
Not needing an alarm clock is good sign that you've enough.

If you google for sprinter athelete then marathoner , you can compare the difference in the body you want.

Not everyone has the luxury of time to run marathons though
