There is no one ideal exercise for fat loss.
The first key ingredient is nutrition. You need to be burning more calories each day than you take in, and good nutrition is the cornerstone. You cannot exercise away a bad diet.
Within the exercise arena, a good program will combine cardio-respiratory exercises with strength training. Both will elevate your oxygen consumption, which is what burns calories. Since muscles at rest need calories, and fat cells use very little if any, increasing your lean muscle mass will help you burn more fat 24/7.
Cardio exercises will have a more immediate effect. If you are an experienced exerciser, adding in intervals to your cardio will increase the calories burned during exercise, and after exercise.
