Can I lose weight by walking 4 miles a day?

Losing weight is all about burning more calories than you consume, and 3,500 calories equates to about 1 pound. So if you walk or run off 500 calories every day for a week, you'll lose around 1 pound per week. Walking at 3 mph for about 80 minutes would also cover about 4 miles and would burn more than 950 calories.

Also asked, how many calories do you burn walking 4 miles in 60 minutes?

Someone weighing 150 pounds walking a normal pace for 60 minutes would burn 250 calories, whereas someone weighing 200 pounds walking for the same duration and speed would burn 333 calories. The average person will burn between 80 to 140 calories per mile.

How many calories do you burn walking 4 miles a day?

If you speed up to walking a mile in 13 minutes or less, you will be burning more calories per mile. But for most beginning walkers, it is best to increase the distance before working on speed. A simple rule of thumb is 100 calories per mile for a 180 pound person.

What is a good time to walk 4 miles?

40 minutes @ 3 mph, accepted as the "average walking pace for women". An average/slow walker would probably take 25-30mins. 4 miles an hour is a perfectly acceptable walking speed. To the OP: It depends very much on the terrain, and what sort of walking it is.
