Honestly how many calories do you really burn from doing cardio, and look at how much time it takes up. I say the best way is to permanently increase your metabolism by increasing strength/muscle mass (not necessarily body builder).  My workouts last around 25 minutes 3 times a week.  I do a few warmup sets and some heavy sets of compound lifts.  Usually three separate exercises each work out.

I see cardio as just that:  improves cardiovascular function.  And for that I have soccer or surfing.  But when I am land locked and don't play sports during the fall and spring semesters at school I don't gain weight or anything.  I eat about the same amount as well

you need both cardio and weight resistance excersise. Obviously cardio is an age old method for weightloss but you also need to do weight resistance training to build lean muscle to continue burning fat for hours after exercise. By combining weight resistance you aid in burning 3 times more fat than just cardio alone.
