I'm no expert on this one, but I disagree. The people I've known in my life who were in the best shape, you know the ones that seem to be "naturally thin" and completely toned all over, every last one of them walked every day, rain or shine, sleet or snow. And for the most part none of them walked all that far, 2-3 miles tops. So I'm thinking it must burn fat, it certainly tones everything up. I knew a women once that lost 300 pounds, she walked 7 miles every morning. In fact she still walks everyday, only now she's a tiny little thing covered in well defined muscle.
