HIIT or LISS Cardio: Which is better for fat loss?

Either Can Work! Neither are required.

As long as you are creating an energy deficit via diet and/or exercise you will lose fat.

Do you like shorter more intense intervals via HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) or do you like longer less intense sessions via LISS (Low Intensity Steady State)?

The type of cardio you choose does not change your ability to lose fat.

Which type of cardio you choose depends on your preferences.

You can also do both which is my preference for general health and because I enjoy it.

Consistency is key to having a Sustainable Fitness Journey.

Your preferences matter.

Consistency is only possible when you enjoy the journey.
