comment How much more cardio for fat loss?
Not only is 170 bpm likely too high, there is a lot of variability in maximum heart rate even for people at a specific age.

Note that heart rate to wattage factors are exercise specific; you aren't going to get the same value on a bicycle as you would on an eliptical

comment fastest way to burn calories?
I'm a serious recreational cyclist with a power meter on my bike, so I can measure how many calories I burn fairly accurately. It is really hard to burn more than 600 calories in hour; I recently went on a 30 mile ride and climbed 2000', and burned 1200 calories in two hours.
