Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption and fat loss

Are you more out of breath after walking, or after sprinting? After lifting a 5 lb weight or a 50 lb weight? This is why intensity is important. The harder you push yourself, the more oxygen you require, the more calories you burn. If you're working out and you're not sweating, consider increasing the weight.
