According to a study published in the American Journal of Physiology aerobic exercise produced better results than resistance training.
Aerobic training burned 67 percent more calories when compared to resistance training.

Resistance training did not produce significant changes to visceral and liver fat, or other aspects of metabolic disease such as insulin resistance.

Combining resistance and aerobic training achieved similar results to purely aerobic training

Lead author Cris Slentz, PhD said: “Resistance training is great for improving strength and increasing lean body mass, but if you are overweight, which two-thirds of the population is, and you want to lose belly fat, aerobic exercise is the better choice because it burns more calories.”
