The Fat Burning Myth

It is often thought that exercising at lower intensities such as walking, burns more fat than at higher intensities (e.g. running). The science behind it is true in so much as when we work at lower intensities we require less 'quick release' energy (in the form of carbohydrates) therefore our body utilises a higher fat-to-carbohydrate ratio.
 
In order to lose weight you need to burn more calories than your body consumes and uses every day.  In other words you need to be in calorie deficit.
