How many Calories does Walking burn?
"Discover a few surprises about how many calories does walking burn..."
Your body weight times the distance you travel = (the energy) calories burned while walking.
Note: You also have an ideal fat burning heart rate zone known as your target heart rate zone. It is at the lower end of your target heart rate zone that you will find the ideal fat burning zone.
So if you actually walked too fast or started jogging your heart rate could be more than the maximum for the fat burning zone. (At a higher energy output, your body will start to utilize more Glycogen, stored in your muscles and liver, than fat. This is because at higher energy outputs Glycogen is easier to use than it is to burn fat calories).
What this means is that you could potentially burn less fat calories at a jog than you would at a brisk walk! Note: I said fat calories, you would probably burn more Total calories the faster you walk or jog, But you would burn less fat calories.
Bla bla, scientific talk, bla, but what does all this mean?
Simply put, to burn the highest possible amount of fat calories during exercise, you should walk as far as possible but keeping your heart within the fat burning heart rate zone, or about 65% of your maximum heart rate.

The calories burned calculator below gives a rough idea of the amount of calories burned while walking at a moderate intensity level, compared with other exercises. These are okay to use for a rough idea to do calorie counting, but I suggest if you need more precise measurements then you should get yourself a heart rate & calories burned monitor.
