Wouldn't it be nice if all we had to do was walk away the pounds? The fat-burning zone you see on cardio machines refers to lower-intensity, lower-heart-rate zone exercises that burn more fat calories than carbs. In reality, however, the type of calories burned matters less than the overall amount of calories you are burning: if you want to lose weight, higher-intensity cardio exercises will do that more efficiently, so it's better to up the intensity and go for the overall burn.
