Cardio – too much?

In the media and practically everywhere else, you hear: if you want to lose weight, do cardio. Cardiovascular workouts do burn fat, but they can only do so much. I wanted to lose those extra pounds and was doing 30 minutes of cardio every day. Nothing. Then I did 1 hour of cardio a day. Nothing. Then I amped it up to two to three hours, depending on how much time I had to spare. Nothing! I cut back on cardio to 30 minutes a day and added 1 hour of weight-lifting, and not those little fives, four times a week. Guess what? Weight loss!
