Well that depends on how much time you have.
At the average walk speed of 3 MPH it will take you one hour to burn 75-100 calories. In comparison, those of you that have had a session with a BBD trainer burn 600-750 calories in a one hour session. Running (5 MPH +) is also in the same calorie burn range.
Walking is great outdoor recreation, socializing and is good for general health but don’t expect to fit into your bathing suit this summer with your daily walks around the neighbourhood.
How Much Cardio to Lose 10 lbs?
Ten pounds of fat is equal to 35,000 calories. You could burn 500 plus calories with each cardio session, therefore, it could take up to 70 cardio sessions to reduce your weight by 10 lbs. That’s why it is crucial to cut calories along with your cardio program or you’ll be on a treadmill for months trying to make a dent in the 35,000 calories you need to burn off. It’s important to know the facts about weight loss. Numbers don’t lie, so base your plan around these facts.

Vital! At the end of the day, if you have overfilled your gas tank at the pumps, the gas spills over. It’s no different when we overeat. The only difference is that the spillover is the muffin-top that we all dread when we put on our pants! Although there is much science that has to be applied when losing weight, it all starts with ensuring that the input/output ratio is in check (your daily activity must be greater than your daily calorie intake). Math first and Science second!
