    Low and slow is the best way for you to burn fat. keep heart rate about 65% MHR. Any fast your body looks for a quicker fuel source (carbs) as the predominant energy supply. Obviously diet is going to be the major player here.

    Carb restriction with a moderately paced cardio. Note that carb restriction does not mean an all out Atkins attack. For me it meant giving up bread, pasta, rice and potatoes. What's left? Well quite a bit when you plan your meals properly. I just have my carb meals on the weekends. You could do a search for Carb Cycling as well.

    But the cardio should be as jminis stated.

    well, I'm sure you expected this answer at some point, but those 800 cals you're burning aren't gonna do any good in your weight loss goal if you're also eating 800 extra cals you shouldn't per day at the same time.

    Make sure you're eating less cals than you are expending during a day

    If you don't go on an all out Atkin's but eliminate all of those foods, what do you eat for carbs? You seem to have eliminated pretty much all sources making it pretty much an Atkins diet

    I agree with the long and slow thing. Walking or using the treadmill at a moderate pace for 45-60 minutes is a great fat-burning excercize. Also, don't forget to vary things up, it doesn't take long for your body to get used to a particular exercize and therefore it becomes more efficient at holding onto fat in spite of the work you put in. So incorporate all kinds of activities to keep your body guessing.
