Fat Burning Range

Why is it important to keep your heart rate lower to burn fat? I have been told that if you run on a treadmill for the same duration and your heart rate is higher, you won't burn as much fat.

Fat Burning Range

When you work out at a lower percentage of your maximum heart rate, you burn a higher percentage of calories as fat calories. But when you work out at a higher heart rate, you will burn more calories overall, and a total of more fat calories as well. Don't slow down if you're capable of working out at a faster pace. The harder exercise will burn more fat in the long run.
