This should lay it all out as I recall...Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

Some people say low intensity cardio burns fat and perserves muscle as well. You always have different opinions on the matter with "research" backing it up.
I personally go by distance now that msm guy got stuck in my head which made the most sense and it actually works the best.
Plus you always have stuff like this floating around to play with your head
But who honestly has the will to walk for 7+ hours to put it to the true test. Maybe If I didn't work a basically full time job I probably would attempt it if I had nothing better to do. I find it hard mentally to lift atleast 3 days a week and jog/run 3 miles a day. lol But maybe when the slow and steady switch turns off and I feel tired of waiting for the next week's weigh-in I may go all out.

Here's an article supporting LISS over HIIT in terms of fat burning.

Do whatever type of cardio you want and don't worry about muscle loss.
As for me I prefer 30-45 min sessions of moderate intensity steady state cardio.Lifts:
Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
Pull-up: bodyweight x2
"There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."
