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

HIIT or Steady State Cardio?
I love HIIT. It saves me time. It provides me the required vigour and stimulation that I need to kick off my day. Those 20-30 minutes of hard HIIT is what I look forward to.
