According to a website the speed of Jogging is around 4 to 6 miles per hour, I'm doing something around (very little faster) 4 miles (6.4 Km) per hour, but I'm doing that uphill, so I go 213 feets (65 meters) up per mile (or per 1.6 Km)

I'm 5 ft 4 in (1.63 m) heigth (yeah, I'm pretty small) and I weight 165 pounds (or 75 kg)

The only problem is that running on that hill with that speed and going up that amount of meters... I could maintain that intensity for about 16 minutes, the idea would do that for 40 to 50 minutes to remove fat from my body, is that enough?

  • Those questions may initially seem irrelevant, but they're basically about what sort of exercise and diet actually work for reducing fat. – Sean Duggan Jul 20 '16 at 14:42

You remove fat from your body by using more calories than you put in.

Jogging for 20 mins burns around 200 calories (ish). Most people need 2200 calories per day. Therefore, you cannot out-exercise a bad diet. If you want to lose weight then focus on diet instead of micromanaging the gym activity; doing that will lead you to be more successful.

I looked at running intensity in this question: What is the "fat burning zone"?

The mantra is true for this question:

eat less, move more.
