Burn Fat: Steady-Pace Walk

Aim for a speed at which you're hustling but still able to speak in sentences (your rate of perceived exertion, or RPE, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is sitting still and 10 is a full-tilt sprint, should be about 6 or 7). Depending on your fitness level, this will be somewhere between a 13- and 17-minute mile, which will keep you in the exercise zone.

Maintain this pace until you've reached your time goal, and not only will you burn more calories, you'll boost your heart health.

Calories burned (45 minutes): 182 (17-minute mile) to 302 (13-minute mile)*

*Calorie burns are based on a 140-pound woman

It takes me about 24 or 25 minutes to reach a mile on the treadmill,going at my current top speed.I have been doing 35 minutes plus a 5 minute cool-down.There is no way I could carry on a conversation at this speed either.

I am not sure who your researcher was for this article, however they should check their facts. A 13 min mile is NOT a walk. No woman walks at 4.5 mph., they may jog but they do NOT walk at 4.5 mph. Plus your calorie must me for a 110 lbs woman not one that really needs or wants to lose 10 pounds in a month.
