Higher cadence would make pedalling more efficient. It's the work done or the distance covered that will burn calories. However, body fat is burned more efficiently when you're exercising at 65-80% of your max HR ( maximum heart rate). Therefore, I reccommend that you get a HR monitor. Am I understanding correrctly that you increased your cadence, while maintaining the same speed on your ride? (meaning: you used lower gear).
