However, if one really wants to drop weight fast it's pretty easy; eat right and either run or swim. Seriously. Running will melt the fat off of a person provided they aren't replenishing it with a double whopper.
Weight training is actually more effective for losing weight. Old school thinking says running burns more calories, but that's not the end of the story. Lifting weights may burn fewer calories while you're in the gym, but it will cause you to burn more calories while you recover for up to 3 days.
