Walking for weight loss – distance or intensity?

I’m reading mixed opinions about this. At the moment I walk 1 hour everyday in moderate pace. Some health sites say ( and I mean proper health sites) if I speed up my walking and cut down the distance for some, I can burn more calories. And other health sites say the important thing is distance, not speed.

Thing is I can’t walk very briskly and continue it for 1 hour everyday. I’m just not fit enough for this.
Which route is better for burning calories and gaining muscle at the same time? ( I’m planning to start with weights soon to build muscle)

here’s what you should do:

simply keep your walking time the same, but alternate between moderate walking and walking briskly.

over time, you will find that you will be able to walk briskly for longer and longer periods of time… and eventually, with dedication and persistence, the day will come when you can walk briskly for the entire hour.

and when that day comes, you will have a feeling of great empowerment and achievement!!

just because you can’t walk briskly for all that long now, dosen’t mean you shouldn’t try to work your way up to it.

you really do want to work your way up to distance and speed together for ultimate calorie burning.

and always perform your cardio immediately after resistance training for even more calorie blasting!!
