    at the same pace i would think incline. elli is just low impact.

    doubt its a huge difference though.

    Incline walking FTW. Although I don't know how they compare in fatloss.

    well... i think the best thing would be to just do both. incline on upper body days, elliptical on lower days

    i seem to burn more calories going doing incline walking vs. elliptical...plus it's less of an akward motion

    I do incline walking... i've done both and I just enjoy it more. I figure whatever I keep doing is the one that I should do.

    Incline > Eliptical

    Eliptical > Incline if you had bad knees
