    Considering this...

    Your weight and the distance you walk determine the energy calories burned while walking. Walking speed matters less than distance and weight. A rule of thumb is 100 calories per mile for a 180-pound person and 65 for a 120-pound person.
    ...it's no great surprise that people aren't seeing any benefits from walking. You really need to do more or walk a LOT if you're looking to lose weight.

    I probably walk 7 hours a week.
    Well it's probably for the best we're so efficient at walking, seeing as it's what our bodies are designed for!

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    My colleague was stopped and questioned by the police because he went for a walk while in Los Angeles.

    2x 15 min walks to/from the train station every weekday, so 2:30 at a bare minimum... A combination of that walk and giving up midweek drinks meant I lost a stone in a month!

    One of my colleagues walked down the stairs of the hotel he was staying at in the US. By the time he had reached the foyer 2 cop cars had arrived as the receptionist thought someone was trying to steal something. He was told that the stairs were not for customer use and he must use the lift.

    It depends on the city in the US, really. Some of the bigger cities were primarily built and designed by car companies, designing roads specifically to not allow public transport or walking in order to force people to use a car (which is simultaneously scary and fascinating - look up the GM Streetcar scandal for an example). Other cities people generally walk everywhere (Vegas, for instance). Here it's kind of a 50/50 split, in that people do walk, but it's too far from residential to commercial for it to be that viable. The only thing within walking distance of my apartment, for instance, is a petrol station. The nearest shop after that is about seven miles away.

    In other places people are just fucking lazy, though.

    I always thought I walk a fair bit since I live in rural Africa and I don't have a car but according to the pedometer in my phone I only do between 1-2 miles a day. So kudos to those who can manage 10 hours a week!

    Walking tonnes since coming back from uni, and add that to the fact Edinburgh is super hilly, I think I do quite well.

    Walking is criminally underrated. Walking early the next morning is the best hangover cure.

    Spot on. Asides from lots of water and fatty, greasy food, there is nothing better.

    Don't think I really appreciate fresh air unless I'm hungover.

    I work in a bar fulltime so I'm on my feet from the time I leave my flat to pretty much the time I get home usually. Don't know how much actual walking time that equates to though..
