That depends on your personal preference. It takes approximately 20 min of cardio for your body to start burning fat. So if you work out for 30+ minutes for 3 days a week, you're doing well. Ideally, a person should only lose 1-2 lbs per week.

This is good. if you are a beginner, you should not expect to perform at an advanced level. i tried that and crashed. start with casual and moderate intense the workouts. and work for gradual progression. the Get Fit quick schemes are for the already fit. Good things don't come to those who wait, Good things come to the patient.

I have been working out anywhere from 1 to 2 hrs a day, about 4-5 days a  week. Some yoga; cardio and exercises on my legs, butt, waist, back and arms; and then maybe an hour of Zumba; some hiking or even walking about 2-3 miles a day. I've been doing this for 2 weeks now.

You should work for as long as you can for starters. Then work your way up to longer times and more intense exercises. You should try to work out atleast three times a week.imo
