TO PERSONALLY ADDRESS NUMBER FOUR: Walking at 3 mph is clinically proven to burn the most fat calories. If you are trying to lose weight, you DO want to stick to low intensity exercise to reduce fat. Unless you're running marathons every day, you'll never burn through all your ingested carbs PLUS your stored glycogen in order to get to the fat. Low intensity exercise uses aerobic metabolism, which breaks down fat along with glucose.
That's a lot of jumping jacks... but do-able - splitting it up into 200 a day, it would just take over a month or so. Splitting that up into 100 morning, 100 evening... quite do-able. Combining that with other cardio, some weight training and eating a little healthier... possibilities are endless!
