But youll also burn fewer calories than you would if, for the same amount of time, you work out at a harder intensity , running versus walking, . If youre trying to lose weight, even though a higher percentage of fat is being used, a lower total amount of fat is lost.

If you do work at a low intensity, you need to increase the time spent exercising to burn more calories. What matters most is the total number of calories burned.
