How many calories do you burn walking?


I'm trying to lose weight, but I'm terribly out of shape and get really tired exercising. I feel like I could do a lot of walking, though, and I want to know if it would help.

Walking can be a great way to burn calories, running burns more (but walking burns more than not doing anything ).

Use the [link url=http://www.caloriesburnedwalkinghq.com]Calories Burned Walking Calculator[/link] to input your weight, time spent walking and speed to get an idea of calories burned based on average metabolic rates.

It's definitely possible to lost weight simply by walking more. It's impossible to give you a flat number on how many calories are burned by walking, though, because there are a lot of factors that go into it. Your weight and the speed you walk both change the number of calories burned per mile, as well as any additional exercise you add in, such as pumping your arms or adding leg weights.
The good news is that the heavier you are, the more calories you burn by walking. A three hundred pound person will burn triple the calories that a one hundred pound person would by traveling the same distance and the same speed. In addition, the faster you walk, the more calories you burn. That same three hundred pound person will burn fifty calories more per mile traveling at five miles per hour than he would at two miles per hour.
The information you're looking for is the "metabolic equivalent" of walking. About.com has a good calculator for figuring that out based on your size and speed, found here: http://walking.about.com/library/cal/uccalc1.htm.
Just push yourself a little; if you currently drive everywhere, see if there are a few places you could walk to instead. Take a walk in the morning, or just move! It's healthy.
