Is running the number one way to lose bodyfat/weight?
 
What are some ways aside from running to lose weight or body fat in general..... I have around 12-13 percent body fat and i wanna get it to 7-9 percent.... i work out on weekly basis and also run but i keep gaining muscle but i don't look slim....which is what i want. :lol

should i just stick to running and give up workin out for little bit?

I find that playing a lot of really good basketball consistently yields the best results. You have to work on the defensive side of the ball and run the floor though. That's why I recommend playing with good players if you are competitive.

I don't know about #1 way but this is definitely better than running:

Dismemberment is obviously the fastest way.

Maintain a caloric deficit. How you do it? Up to you. A combination of a strong diet, cardio, and weight-lifting is the best way to do it. It's also what I recommend if you really wanna look sexy as hell naked.

Stop eating grains and sugary foods almost entirely, and you can eat anything else you want.

I used to be 7% (was measured when I was a sprinter). I'm probably in the 18-20% range now, but I'm not really sure.

Diet is the best and easiest way.

High intensity aerobics/ circuit training.

Changing your diet obviously should help.

Lower impact exercise than running. Not an issue when you're in your teens or 20's, but as you get older the impact of running on hard concrete/surfaces begins to take its toll on your body.
