let me get things straight, if your heart is pumping above a certain rate, thats anaerobic training, which just increases endurance

anything below that cv heart rate is just pure fat burning?

So theoretically (sp) you would burn more fat from a brisk walk, then say, a high-paced jog??

No, as you have to factor in the amount ''burned'' afterwards by your raised metabolism...you burn fat after the workout in terms of anaerobics and weights as your metabolism has been raised for longer.

You get endurance and some fat burning from anaerobic activity. Obviously, the S.A.I.D.principe says that if you run a lot, you'll get good at running. Obviously running has an overlap with walking in terms of skills/endurance required

Everything that makes your body move, will require some source of energy. This energy is mostly, if there is too much, fat.

Walking, jogging, swimming.. whatever.. they all burn fat, if you run/walk faster/longer, you burn more fat and vice versa.

Incorrect. The high-paced jog is more demanding to your body, and thus uses more "fuel". In this case the "fuel" will be your bodyfat.

Have you seen fat runners? Have you seen fat walkers? ; )

The body does burn a higher percentage of calories f

BUT, at higher intensities, you burn a greater number of overall calories which is what you should be concerned about when trying to lose weight.

When you are not buring calories from fat you are burning carb energy.  When you perform a high intensity workout, the ratio of carbs burning up is much higher then fat.  But if you go long enough, eventually you will run out of stored carbs and your body will draw from the fat more.  In a low intensity workout, you are buring 50/50.

In the end, interval training (which is completely brutal mind) or HOC as advocated by Mike Mahler and many others has been proved to be far, far more effective then running for miles in terms of time efficiency and much else

 an ex competitive bodybuilding mate of mine used to go for brisk walks in the 'cutting up' stage before a competition, due to the reasons mizz lady has stated, the body uses the fat as energy in such activities, therefore the muscle isnt eaten into. important for bodybuilding, not for general weight loss because he had to go out walking for about three hours at a a time! far better to invest less time in higher intensity stuff.

Actually there is more evidence to suggest that the runner has a harder time losing fat. The runner devlops a level of tolerance eventually and so a particular level of energy demand, eventually you reach a limit. Anaerobically you can only burn so much energy. Aerobic activity is more efficient.

Interval training is I agree a more efficient way of burning fat.

"So theoretically (sp) you would burn more fat from a brisk walk, then say, a high-paced jog??

Incorrect. A blanket statement. A significant varying walk at a brisk pace can be just as demanding. Theproblem with most joggers is a lack of technique which becomes inefficient and doesn't od a lot more than a brsk walk or interval type motion.

I"ve learnt a bit more, running utilises carbs/glycogen as fuel as walking or simlar level CV is more inclined to be fat burning. I think the running the idea creates a high peak in activitywith a low end trough at the end as opposed to the sustained raised activity though not as high but raised in walking.

I suppose this creates a more lingering raised metabolism and thus a fat burn.

 Also resistance training is being found in many new studies to aid in fat burning..the theory is: bigger muscles need more energy, like a larger furnace burns more fuel. So a mixture of Fartlek training and BWE  and/or weights may in fact be the best overall burner of fat.
