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
|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!
