I walk on the treadmill every day for an hour at 4.1 mph. I've read that long slow walking leads to weight gain because of muscle loss. Why?

Exercise: FirstA959~ weight loss is the result of negative calorie intake wrt work output (exercise). So, if you take in 3000cal/day and expend 3500cal/day the 500 burned = weight loss.

My sister and I walk treadmill for thrity min her heart rate stays 85 mine 129 she takes blood pressue meds any danger in that I am 63 129 heart rate and she is 69

Blood: Blood pressure medications often include beta blockers like metoprolol or atenolol. These drugs can prevent one's heart from going faster when one exercises. If your sister is taking one of these nmedications it might explain the difference in your heart rates.
The effectiveness of aerobic exercise is often judged by the heart rate one achieves during the exercise. For vigorous exercise, a target heart rate of 110 to 133 would be reasonable for an average 63 year old. Consider discussing your target range with an exercise physiologist or personal trainer. If you get short of breath or have chest tightness on the treadmill, you should definitely discuss this with your doctor.
Other medications which can lower your maximum heart rate include medications to reduce irregular heart beats, some calcium blockers and digoxin. H-2 blockers prescribed for acid reflux may also reduce the maximum heart rate. Ask your doctor if you need to use a lower target heart rate. ...Read more

I try and walk 5 days a week at least 60 minutes a day on the treadmill at 2.3 mph with no incline is this still considered cardio?
