Not to rain on your parade Dragonchilde, but that isn't true.
Weight loss is about both diet and exercise. Working out for 30 minutes will increase your heart rate for a longer period of time, resulting in more calories burned and a better aerobic workout.
That said, if you can't do 30 minutes for medical reasons, some exercise is better than none. Have you cleared this with your doctor?

I used to exercise like this and had great results! I would do 15min of cardio in the morning and 15min of cardio in the evening and gradually increased those times. I've been meaning to start approaching my cardio this way again actually! Good luck!

Absolutely. 3 x 10 minutes has the same benefits as 30! Because weight loss is about the food you eat, not the exercises you do, you will lose the same no matter which you do.
Heather Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
Is it just as effective to do 3 10min exercises throughout the day or do I need to do the whole 30-40 min. Will i still lose the weight? I just can't seem to do a whole 40 min all at once. I have had surgery on both feet in the past and doing to much at once kills me..
