I launched Fabulous Body on 29th January 2016. I have written approximately 500+ articles and answers on this website and on Quora altogether, with a combined view of 3+ million.


Although it’s really tough to choose the best, as all the answers are based on different subject topics (mostly relevant to building muscle, fat loss, overall health, and life in general).


Here I have taken this opportunity to choose the articles and answers that have garnered the most views and comments (even though total views on an answer or article are not an indicator of how well it’s written).

1) How To Build The Ideal Male Physique


I am nowhere close to ideal. My shoulder width is 46 inches, my waist fluctuates between (31-33)inches, my arms are 16.5 when flexed, my thighs are 23, and my calves and neck are 15 inches.


My ultimate goal is to increase my shoulder width to about 49 inches, maintain my waist to no more than 31 inches, take my arms to (17-17.5), and my calves and neck to at least 16 inches. Gosh, you think I am obsessed about my physique going into the nitty-gritty of my physique, don’t you?

2) Intermittent Fasting: The Definitive Guide- True or False?


-Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

-I need to eat five to six smaller meals throughout the day if I want to lose weight.

-I must ingest protein every three to four hours to avoid muscle breakdown.


These statements are what conventional wisdom dictates to be true. Do they work?


Maybe, but what if I tell you there is a better way to eat that will not only save you time but will make you stronger, leaner, and healthier at the same time? Interested? I bet you are.


So what is intermittent fasting, and how can it help you build a lean, sexy, healthy physique and, in the process, save lots of time and effort?

3) HIIT Or Steady State Cardio?


I love HIIT. It saves me time. It provides me with the required vigor and stimulation that I need to kick off my day. Those 20-30 minutes of hard HIIT are what I look forward to.


I love challenges, and it’s a nice break from my otherwise sedentary lifestyle (which I am trying to alter via a standing desk and my Fitbit 10,000 steps challenge).


But don’t worry; I won’t shove HIIT down your throat if you don’t want it. I am personally interested in optimizing my gene expression and want to move towards wellness in the shortest time that I have available. I know one can be optimally healthy, fit and functional in only 3 to 6 hours a week.

4) How To Lose Weight | The Right Way


When we talk about losing weight, we are usually concerned with losing fat. After all, no one wants to lose muscle, bone weight, or even organ weight. When I talk about weight loss, I am specifically referring to losing fat.

5) Ultimate Guide On How To Gain Weight-The Right Way


When we talk about gaining weight, what it means is that we are concerned about gaining muscles. Our body weight comprises lean mass, fat mass and water.


Lean Mass

Comprises your bone weight, your organ weight, your brain weight, and your muscle weight.



Nearly 70% of your body is water. At any given point in time, your body can hold about 40 liters of water.


Fat Mass

All your adipose tissues, including visceral fat, essential fat, and subcutaneous fat, consists of your fat mass.


Therefore throughout the article or anywhere on this website, If I am referring to gaining weight, I specifically mean building muscle.

Top Answers on Quora 


1) What Is The Most Simple Meal Plan That I Could Eat Every Day And Be Healthy?


My dad (who is 60+) is healthy despite a few glitches here and there. He has been eating a simple meal since childhood, as have millions of people like him of his generation. But, of course, back then dieting and weight loss were not big industries back then.


There were not many foods that were marketed as diet, low carb, low fat, etc. Most of all, there weren’t many distractions back then. They used to eat a simple diet of ‘dal roti’ as he puts it, exercise a bit, andstayd healthy. 1


2) How Do I Reduce My Tummy Fat?


I was skinny fat too, like you. And simply jogging or not eating junk is not enough, although it’s just a start. I am not going to give you a cookie-cutter answer, as few experts here have already given you the information that you need.


Instead, I will ask you to get tested for your ‘Fasting Insulin,’ which can give you insights into how your body is functioning. Our body type is that of an ectomorph, and most fat cells are located in our core area. e.g., around your waist. 2


3) What Is The Cheapest Way To Eat Healthily?


You can save way too much money when trying to eat healthily. Here are 9 ways, when implemented, you can save lots of money: -Whole foods are highly nutritious than supplements and much cheaper. I am not saying you don’t need supplements; you do.


For example, taking krill oil to fulfill your Omega-3 requirements is super important) but you can hold on until you build solid eating habits before you splurge your money on supplements. 3


4) What Are The Things One Should Not Do Immediately After A Workout Session At The Gym?


Tim Ernst wrote a wonderful answer clearly explaining how the hormones function after one’s workout session and why they should wait at least an hour before ingesting their post-workout meal, either in the form of supplements or as a whole meal.


Awesome job! At the same time, I would like to touch upon some more key pointers on what you should not do immediately after your workout session. 4


5) What Do Well-Off People Eat To Keep Looking So Fit And Healthy?


Recently I read about Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s diet on Statements in bold letters have been adapted from the article in boston[dot]com, and beneath it are my comments.


Tom Brad’s and Giselle’s diet is 80% plant-based, and their chef Allen Campbell believes that is where all the nutrition is! -Agreed!


Campbell also focuses on buying organic and local produce and staying away from GMOs. Yes, it’s always a good idea to buy seasonal and local produce. Eating organic is good, but not allrequired foods should be organic. 5
