Our expert says:
ANything over and above nothing is good for you, so three times a week is good, yes. Obviously, adding a 4th day each week would make an impact, and I would still recommend it, but if time is limited, then three times a week is OK. As for the choice of exercise, you're 100% right. Rather do what you enjoy, because this is a longterm thing, not an overnight fix, so don't get caught up in the hype about doing fancy training when you can do what you enjoy and do it often.
Any exercise might help to lose weight, but it is never guaranteed because it's a function of how hard you do it, how long you go for and what your diet is like. That's the key part. So if you trained five times a week, for two hours at a time (extreme), then the "acceptable" diet looks different from what it looks with 3 sessions a week of 30 minutes. Does that make sense? The point is, you have to look wholistically at this, because you can't simply control one half of the equation- the other half is diet and that is just as vital!
So I'd strongly advise that you see a dietician about this and have it sorted, then the programme you're doing should help!
