Is it? If so, how many minutes in a day and times in a week should I do it?

I think it is, I do it for ten minutes everyday, plus run at least fifteen

I would use the elliptical for at least 45 minutes 5 days a week and i saw results in two weeks (with clean eating). Make sure you adjust the resistance so you are actually working.

I agree here. I lost 100 lbs from using the elliptical. Now I burn over a 1000 calories on level 18 for an hr. The calorie burn on cardio machines are not accurate AT ALL. I've done a personal test for my own sanity. Ive gotten #'s from 1000-2000+. Yes the elliptical is a great cardio machine especially if you have knee and back pains. Remember to use resistance and ear clean.

Wow! How long did you use elliptical to loose 100lbs?

An hour each day, while gradually challenging myself and increasing intensity. It took me from February to September to make that achievement.
