There are a couple more factors to bear in mind.

Firstly, somewhat counter-intuitively, the heavier you are, the more calories you will burn. As you will see from the table in the next subsection, while a 120 pound person will burn fractionally over 9 cal per minute when jogging, a 180 pound person will use just short of 14 cal per minute doing exactly the same thing.

Secondly, even within a category of exercise, some forms of exercise are more effective for burning of fat than others. As an example, because of the effects of gravity, weight-bearing exercises such as jogging, running and walking are more effective for burning fat than would be non weight-bearing activities such as swimming or even cycling. In both of these cases, the effects of gravity have little or no influence on the amount of work you need to do.

No special equipment is needed, so no excuses.

The following table of how many calories you burn per minute of exercise is taken from ACE Fitness Matters, Volume 1, Number 4, 1995:
