    they've gotta be leaving out something here ... the only way you're burning more calories by walking less fast is if you're doing it for a longer period of time ... which seems half implied by the article, but not clear ... am I wrong here? are they just trying to soft-touch this for the fatties, instead of saying "you're too fat to walk briskly long enough to do any good" ... ?

    They contradict themselves in the article:

    and then
    I think they're extrapolating too much from the generic 100 calories per mile whether walking or jogging rule; sure, if you walk slower so that you walk farther that's better than going fast and only making a short distance; but you will never burn more calories per mile going *slower*.

    no because after you run the 6 minute mile, your metabolism just doesnt shut down, it'd still be functioning for another 54 minutes

    more like 30 minutes :ugh:

    your metabolism raises when your body is in recovery mode. running doesn't require much recovery unless you're doing sprints

    Are you a fucking retard? You're metabolism doesnt shut down 30 minutes after you run a 6 minute mile, I didn't say it'd stay ELEVATED for 54 minutes.

    ok I am confused

    I run a mile first thing in the AM
    metabolism jumps up

    does it gradually decrease afterwards or what? does it last all day

    What the hell doesnt that have to do with what I said, I was speaking on Dccapens post, hence why I quoted it, he was using walking for an HOUR as a time span, but no, if you run first thing in the morning, your metabolism isnt gonna stay elevated for hardly any amount of time

    i would think that your metabolism decreases as the day goes unless you're in constant motion or using physical strength. it descrease when you're not in motion hence the reason why you sleep at night, when your metabolism is the slowest. also the reason why they say not to eat so close to the time you sleep but then i hear otherwise that it is negligible. i dont know opinions are opinions.

    i think it's personally what is your preference. everyone is trying to find a secret to working out or losing weight. it's all about lifestyle and health to how good you want to look.

    not that you're ugly but :eek4:

    Ah, I figured you meant it'd be elevated. Now I understand what you're trying to say though you did not word it very clearly
