I am looking to lose about ten pounds in the next three months. I am currently at 136. I walk about 30-45 minutes a day, 4-5 days a week. Does anyone have suggestions for legnth of time, speed, # of miles, etc for a decent weight loss? I just wanted to see if any of you had been there and done that already with a little success.Answer Question

When this occurs, your muscles will be relying on the breakdown of sugars (glycogen), and an organic compound called creatine phosphate, rather than using fat to supply their fuel needs. Exercising as intensely as you can, therefore, is not the best approach for fat burning. Adopting an intensity that you can sustain for an extended duration is far more effective. Walking briskly for an hour will result in far greater fat combustion than ten minutes of all-out effort.
