I have found it is not hiring a personal trainer but becoming one! I say this somewhat tongue in cheek but I've lost twenty pounds in 4 months since I really got my business going. I think a little of this is muscle but most is fat. Why? Not because I am trying because I am eating everything I can get my hands on. But I have switched from one longer workout per day to 2-3 short bouts in between clients. I only did this because my schedule forces me to. But these short bouts, combined with being on my feet most of the day has turned me into a calorie burning machine.
I have tried shorter, more frequent bouts as opposed to one longer workout and looked at the research regarding such, but living it has lead me to believe it adds much more to the metabolic equation than I thought. I know this isn't convenient or desirable for many, but trying your own variation of such could help you break through a fat loss plateau.
