    Is walking any good for burning fat?

    I mean a brisk walk, maybe 20min/ mile....

    It just feels so easy and chill/fun way to burn some calories

If you're waiting for good things to come to you, you'll be waiting for a pretty long time.

    I suppose a lot of it is down to how frequent you will be with your walks. We started walking holidays in June last year and have been away 7 times since, weeks in the Lakes, the North Yorkshire Moors and 5 of the times in the Yorkshire Dales. However, due to the fact that we're big rugby followers we only get the odd day outside of our holidays with https://hellomaterialsblog.com/keto-fit-pro-review/ . So, whilst we might walk 30 or 40 miles each time were away - and up peaks, it doesn't really make any difference as we don't do it regularly enough. It needs to be regular and part of a healthy lifestyle.

    Yes I think so. I walked an hour+ (7k steps) every single day during lockdown and lost weight. Was also eating better though. But still I think the walks helped a lot.

    Walking is good for your health and also good exercise. much easier to fit in to my life than concerted "cardio". It is low impact and does burn some calories but if you routinely do a fair amount of walking every day then it adds up.

    I like to think of it as adding an extra "nudge" to my daily deficit.

    Best to think about it as being in a calorie deficit is good for burning fat. If walking helps you do that then it's good. It won't have as many cardiovascular benefits as more intense cardio. If you enjoy the walking though and that helps with stress/happiness then those are additional benefits in your favor.

    Its low intensity steady state which is one method to use fat as energy.
    It has to be done for longer periods of time though to be effective.
    30-60 minute sessions and be more of a brisk walk.
    A good way outdoors to also get fresh air and sunshine(Vit D).
    A`alternating days of higher intensity cardio can be good also.

    It will work if you're walking away from the fridge.

    Walking works. But like what has been said it, it has to be a relatively long walk.
    Running is even better.
    I myself was doing 4 days of HIIT a week, and then as soon as I stopped and went from 3 days of intense lifting a week to 4, my fat loss spiked so go figure.

    I used to walk a few miles at night with a weight vest. It definitely works. It works the legs a lot too (obviously)

    good buddy of mine, co-worker, leaned right out just doing 2hr walks everyday. It is also a change in diet and feeding pattern, but for exercise walking was all he was doing. Took him just under a year to reach his goal. Later he also added some light exercises to his walking routine, like duck walks, pushups etc.
