Generally, the more intense the exercise, the more calories are burned. An exception to that rule of thumb seems to be with walking. Walking slowly actually burns more calories than moderately paced walking. Strolling along at two miles an hour typically burns more calories per minute or unit distance than walking at three or even four miles an hour. Increasing your pace to race-walking speeds, however, burns more calories than slow or moderate walking.
