Is HIIT really better for fat loss?

Hello everyone!

Lately, I've been hearing a lot about how doing HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is so much better than steady cardio.

HIIT is basically like walking for one minute, jogging for one minute alternating for 10-60 minutes.

Here is another HIIT workout, as an example.

In an article I found, they compare how much fat loss comes from what intensity of cardio.  Their point is sure, high intensity cardio will cause fat loss, but it is difficult to do often, while steady cardio is easier to do more often. 

The article goes into a lot more detail about the good and bad, and I thought it was an interesting read.
