Our expert says:
The advice you have received has no scientific basis and I would advise very differently. You should be doing both cardio and resistance training. I suggest you go to the home page and click on Shape up for Summer (home-based) or War on Wobbles (gym-based), to get an idea of a really comprehensive exercise programme.
Realise that when you do resistance training, you build lean tissue whichis muslce tissue, whichgives you shape. Also lean tissue burns up more tissue than fat tissue, therefore actually boosts you metabolic rate.
