I'm bored so I decided to type this up from an article I have, from the April 2004 Fitness mag.

This is for a treadmill and based on a 135lb woman you'll burn 500 calories in 60 minutes.

Outside Walking: 6 Week Get Lean Plan
Zone 1: 65-70% of Max HR (Heart Rate)
Zone 2: 70-80% of Max HR
Zone 3: 80-85% of Max HR

*You will start off in zone 1, where your body is used to burning fat for energy and gradually move into higher intensities (zones 2 and 3) The slow progression allows your body to adapt to using fat for fuel at greater levels of effort so you can exercise longer and get leaner faster*

*Start every workout with a 5 minute warm up, cool down at your own pace for as long as you want, and at the end stretch for a few minutes*
