Cardio for fat/weight loss for older people?

Would you recommend the same regime for fat loss for a woman in her 60's as younger people?

I mean, am cardio, on empty steady state, 40/45 mins etc etc.

My mum just cannot shift the flab, her diet isn't bad, her job is pretty sedentry though and she is 61.

She has been jogging in the mornings for ages but only for around 15 mins a time.

Any help much appreciated

    weight training twice weekly 'body allowing' (just easy full body stuff)
    steady cardio after this and on off days 3-4 times a week with no great structure, but enjoyable and easy on joints
    light meals throughout the day rich in micronutrients, essential fats and slow digesting carbs
    generally good eating and in a slight negative energy balance

    if that fails DNP in her tea

    sorry mate, by saying 'no great structure' do you mean no set time for cardio ?

    I've seen you say " I'm not here to spoon feed you" loads of times but I need it LOL, I'll supply the spoon, you just shove it in my mouth LOL

    just get her active

    structure and 'set sessions' can be hard in terms of motivation for those who are not mad on training or getting on

    a brisk walk in the park lasting about 40-45 minutes is fine

    dont quanitfy it to them, just get them active, let them feel the benefits and flow from there

    strict stuff at that age?

    not really IMO
