Lengthy walks are extremely beneficial for fat loss and have been shown to improve longevity above and beyond other types of exercise.
If fat loss is the main goal, you simply need to make sure you walk for a long enough period of time.Click Here for my article on getting Super-Lean by Eating a High Carb Diet (Opposite of Keto).

Walking burns fat at a slow and steady pace, but you can speed up the fat loss process by doing HIIT first.
Intense exercise like HIIT releases free fatty acids into the bloodstream. If you follow these intense efforts with slow cardio, you can easily burn a lot of this fat.
