Now I'm running 20 miles a week.

Thanks to you, I'm off medication. I completed C25K in April and now I'm on to 10K. I bought a HRM thinking it would help, but I'm too thick to understand it.
My goal is to lose all the weight I put on during my horrible depression of last year. Please tell me what kind of training is best for this purpose.
I'm confused: should I run really slowly to stay in the fat burning zone? It's kind of counter-intuitive. I also read somewhere that one has to "teach the body to burn fat". How do I do that?
