High rep weight training and longer cardio intervals will help you burn carbohydrates as well as fat! You will lose weight and gain muscle. At lower intensities you are burning mostly fat, but at higher intensities you are burning carbs and fat.
Ladies, do not be scared to lift heavy. Women do not have enough testosterone in their bodies to look like men!
The goal is to lift a heavier weight to failure (until you can’t lift anymore), and then follow that workout with long cardio intervals. Doing this helps you lose weight and the intervals aid in recovery from the strength workout that can make you sore.
