I just wandered in here somehow... pardon the intrusion. Here's a good place to start here on the forums. Chances are, you'll want more specific answers though:
Fat Loss Basics
The key is to keep it simple at first, keep learning from sources you trust (never follow advice that doesn't agree with your own sense of reason!) and eventually you'll become more savvy regarding diet and training.
Everyone starts somewhere, and often that is a diet or training program they found somewhere. In college, the catalyst for me and my girlfriend at the time was a book called "Body For Life" by Bill Phillips. It outlines not a "diet", but rather a framework for you to be able to make a life change to better eating habits. Most people can even stop there if it fits their current needs (my mother made her own nutrition plan after reading this book, and follows a simple training program she got right out of the pages.) You'll get there. Big changes require a commitment the average person cannot/will not make. Don't be the average person :P

Is that you currently in the picture? If so I think you would be happy with toning with weights.
I would try to get at least 30 min of cardio in 3 days a week. More if you can.
I train 5 days a week with weights and hit cardio on as many of those days as I can. 2nd shift is harder. Do you go to a gym? If so is it 24 hrs?
If your job is not too physical I would try to get it done before you go so you can sleep when you get home.

Before starting any type of fat burner it is a good idea to get your diet in tact and begin training more with cardio at least 30 min. 4-5 times a week and resistance training at least 3 times per week.

The first thing to understand about weight loss is that no matter what you do, and no matter what you eat, there is only one way you will lose weight at the end of the day...You have to expend more calories than you consume...there are lots of fancy methods I can give you and supplements and workout regimines I can recommend...but think about that and then you can move on from there, because it starts to get really complicated, because most women will assume that to create a big calorie deficit they can just quit eating, or eat twice a day...and thats the opposite direction you want to go in.....

If you eat 'decent' like you say you do I would do cardio upon waking up on an empty stomach for 45minutes to 1 hour. It's important not to eat anything, and to wait 30minutes post cardio aswell.

good advice but i believe you mean best times to do cardio are
1) morning on empty stomach (low intensity so you dont lose muscle)
2) after your workout before your postworkout meal
you can start it at those times every day 30-45 min till weight loss halts then up each one by 10 minutes until you hit 60 min MAX per session.

Honestly bro, waiting 30mins post workout for natty GH levels to rise sounds like some straight up flex mag bulltish.... Get nutrients in you as fast as you can.
At first when I read that I thought you were talking about synthetic GH.

I'm not doubting there is or isn't.
It's just there's so minimal a benefit with synthetic GH & IGF in terms of muscle gain that I found it absolutely pointless to wait that long post workout for your natty ones.... Getting your post workout shake/ meal immediately after your workout is much more important.

If you feel it works for you go for it.
I just find wrong logic to it.
