H.I.I.T. ?

I seem to have found what works for me in terms of diet to lose weight.
I reduced calories and cut out red meat and fatty desserts.
I was doing low glycemic for months, eating meat every day and didnt lose an ounce.
Its been two months and my belly has gone in one notch. Slow yes but better than before.
Now I need help with the exercise component.
I have been jogging on my treadmill three times a week and then some stretches and weights.
A friend says I am doing it all wrong though. I need to do H.I.I.T.
I tried it with him and though the workout was much shorter I didnt enjoy it at all. It was stressfull and very demanding.  I like my long leisurely runs so I can watch a soccer game or the sports news on the TV.I actually enjoy my type of workout as I can let my mind go blank and run off negative mental energy and stress.
Am I wasting my time doing what I am doing? I am almost 50 and this H.I.I.T. thing seems more for younger people.
I would like to boost my slow weight loss though.  
Thanks for your advice.

The NUMBER ONE RULE of working out is this:

If it's not enjoyable, you won't do it?so pick an activity that YOU LIKE.

If you don't like HIIT, forget about it. I don't like it either. I hate sprinting. Personally, I don't like any kind of running. I prefer cycling - so I try to do it as much as I can.

So if you love your long leisurely runs, then BY ALL MEANS continue them. Just realize that you'll have to run 20 or 30 minutes to equal the calories burned in a 5 to 10 minute HIIT session.

What I would recommend is some WEIGHT LIFTING to your routine. A 15 minute weight session 3 times a week will build some muscle and help burn lots more calories!

Are you out of work and looking for a new job (or know someone who is), but find that everyone who is hiring is looking for someone with computer skills? You're not alone. It's hard to find a job without knowing how to use a computer.

In today's offices, you need to understand how to use Microsoft Windows, write a document in Microsoft Word, or even work with spreadsheets in Microsoft Excel. Unfortunately, classroom-based computer training can be expensive - sometimes hundreds of dollars a day. If you're out of work, it's hard to afford!

I want to do my part to help people in this tough economy. I have put together a special training CD that includes over six hours of video tutorials that I'm giving away absolutely FREE to anyone who's currently out of work and looking for a job. If this describes you, click here:
