Optimum heart rate for fat burning
by: Elizabeth, Beat Menopause Weight Gain

I consulted Paige Waehner, exercise expert on About.com to find the answer to your question. According to Paige, "...you may hear that working at the low end of your THR zone will burn more fat. While this is technically true, this isn't the best intensity to work at if you're trying to lose weight. Instead, you want to work at a higher intensity to burn more overall calories." She goes into more detail in this series of articles on Cardio Workouts.
