Walk Faster For Weight Loss


If you're walking for weight loss then you may want to step up your pace. When walking on a level surface, the faster you go the more calories you'll burn. I know this is common sense, but we can all use a little reminder every now and again. To see what a 150 pound person can burn from walking at different speeds then read more.


A 150 lb person can burn the following:
Pace Calories Burned
2 MPH: walking at a leisurely pace 102 calories per hour
3 MPH: walking at a moderate pace 190 calories per hour
4 MPH: walking at a brisk pace 272 calories per hour
5 MPH: walking at a super fast pace (basically jogging) 476 calories per hour

So step it up (pun intended) and burn more calories!
