The problem with this argument is that the sources of information come from two completely different types of people.
The argument that losing weight is harder must have come from someone who was originally fat, and the argument that gaining mass is harder must have come from someone who was originally scrawny. Losing weight/gaining mass takes a different type of mindset, but they both require determination. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

Energy-consumption-wise, gaining mass would definitely be harder. You have to provide enough nutrients, exercise, training and work for your body to grow. And that shit's hard to do. With losing weight, all you have to do is stop fucking eating, nigga. That's it. Eat three small, healthy meals a day.
Mentally, however, I think losing weight would be harder. Being fat comes with so many drawbacks, but the little benefits (like dopamine releases from eating food) can overpower you when you feel like giving up on exercise. Also, the face that a fat person can work out for less time than a skinny person is probably disheartening.

The only variable that really counts for anything here is the mindset of the fat/skinny person. If you're the kind of person who gives up easily you're going to find everything difficult. If you like a challenge, you might find it difficult, but you're going to reap much more satisfying rewards. Personally, I'm of a healthy weight. I have a lot of stamina but I'm a weak noodle. I am skinny but I have no abdominal muscle (so my stomach does the flab thing even though the rest of me is fine). I think I can fix that easily. I used to do tawkwondo, so I know there's at least one sport/workout that I would enjoy, and I'm not a quitter.
On the other hand, if I were fat, I think I'd get worse and worse. I enjoy sugar. A lot. Enough to make people comment on it. And I eat at unhealthy intervals (either way too much or way too little). I also don't sleep enough, and I don't like leaving my room.
Overall, which thing is 'harder' is a personal issue, not a technical one.
And you guys are stupid for bothering to argue over it.

But thanks, because now I have motivation to actually fix these damn flabs.

No, I agree. Addiction can be overcome. But it's all calories in vs calories out, for gain or loss. Aesthetic build? Good on you. Grab a magazine or two, they have some great information in them. I assume you're stacking properly.

I understand that. It's not easy. But neither is losing weight. Don't belittle either side, was my point. I've battled food addiction. It makes it easier when after not eating fast food, it tastes like shit, but it is designed to appeal to base brain. Mammals are hard wired to enjoy that shit, and they know it. It's hard to find a good, healthy meal for lunch where I'm at. I try to grab grilled chicken wraps or salads with no dressing, but I still have to try hard to convince myself to not grab that cheese burger, because I know it won't just be once.

Ive gotten to the point where fast food or greasy food just disgusts me and living here in San Antonio Texas the current, or former, fattest city in the US, theres so much bad food down here. My mom somewhat battles food addiction she's one of those "comfort food" types and she's upset about her weight but doesn't stop all her bad habits and it infuriates me how she doesn't listen to me.

I just get upset how all the attention is on "losing weight" when no one seems to care about those trying to gain.

That's just not the epidemic. The psychology of being fat, combined with the parasitic fast food industry, is causing a massive rise in weight related disease. We also have these retarded "health at any weight" and fat acceptance ass holes attempting to belittle self control. No one ever died from being (reasonably, and while receiving nourishment) thin. There is a lot of talk over eating disorders, which is the opposite extreme, but people being within ideal BMI is kind of the ideal.

ive honestly never really craved sugar and i hate chocolate. Seriously. So i guess i get that luxury. effort wise and time consuming wise, gaining takes hundreds of more hours directed to the cause though. But mentally, in order to lose weight and stop that addiction, it can bring people to their breaking point same as all other forms of addiction. Like i have friends trying to lose weight and everyday its like "seriously. stop. eating. how is that so hard to do" i just can't grasp how they don't stop.

"Experiments in animals and humans show that, for some people, the same reward and pleasure centers of the brain that are triggered by addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin are also activated by food, especially highly palatable foods. Highly palatable foods are foods rich in:

Sugar
Fat
Salt
Like addictive drugs, highly palatable foods trigger feel-good brain chemicals such as dopamine. Once people experience pleasure associated with increased dopamine transmission in the brain's reward pathway from eating certain foods, they quickly feel the need to eat again."

Look, I'm not saying it's not doable. It is in fact easier to put on weight than to lose it, based upon every documented thing, ever. Argue all you like, but at the end of the day, I can still bench your skinny whining ass.

Except you're wrong. The only reason it's easier to gain muscle when you're fat is extra body mass when doing body weight exercises. Other than fat is just that. Muscle and fat tissue are not the same damn thing. In your original statement you said from skinny to swole and fat to fit. swole and fit can mean two different things. It's just as hard to get swole while you're fat as it a skinny person to get swole. The only difference between the two is their body types, it takes no more and no less effort from either party given they have the same end goal in mind . Proper diet, exercise, regular sleep are all important factors for both.

Right. Your degree is very clear. I'm sure you've done a lot of research in your day. If only there were products for gaining... Oh yeah. Whereas being over weight is due to food addictions and lower metabolism. Psychology is totally basic, though. Right? Get some mass builder and shut the fuck up.

FOOD ADDICTIONS pleeeeeeeaaaaaase put the damn fork down and cut this bullshit "stress eating" argument and invest in a more proactive stress reliever than a tub of ice cream. You accelerate metabolism with exercise which your fat clan seems to not do. Standing metabolisms hardly differ from "fast and slow" if you sit on your ass all day eating shit and not doing anything your metabolism will be as slow as your ability to walk up stairs. Self control, Eat clean, exercise. boom i just saved fat lives all around the globe. Pass on the news my son

It's hard to find a good, healthy meal for lunch where I'm at. I try to grab grilled chicken wraps or salads with no dressing, but I still have to try hard to convince myself to not grab that cheese burger, because I know it won't just be once.

Ive gotten to the point where fast food or greasy food just disgusts me and living here in San Antonio Texas the current, or former, fattest city in the US, theres so much bad food down here. My mom somewhat battles food addiction she's one of those "comfort food" types and she's upset about her weight but doesn't stop all her bad habits and it infuriates me how she doesn't listen to me.

I just get upset how all the attention is on "losing weight" when no one seems to care about those trying to gain.

That's just not the epidemic. The psychology of being fat, combined with the parasitic fast food industry, is causing a massive rise in weight related disease. We also have these retarded "health at any weight" and fat acceptance ass holes attempting to belittle self control. No one ever died from being (reasonably, and while receiving nourishment) thin. There is a lot of talk over eating disorders, which is the opposite extreme, but people being within ideal BMI is kind of the ideal.

ive honestly never really craved sugar and i hate chocolate. Seriously. So i guess i get that luxury. effort wise and time consuming wise, gaining takes hundreds of more hours directed to the cause though. But mentally, in order to lose weight and stop that addiction, it can bring people to their breaking point same as all other forms of addiction. Like i have friends trying to lose weight and everyday its like "seriously. stop. eating. how is that so hard to do" i just can't grasp how they don't stop.

Except you're wrong. The only reason it's easier to gain muscle when you're fat is extra body mass when doing body weight exercises. Other than fat is just that. Muscle and fat tissue are not the same damn thing. In your original statement you said from skinny to swole and fat to fit. swole and fit can mean two different things. It's just as hard to get swole while you're fat as it a skinny person to get swole. The only difference between the two is their body types, it takes no more and no less effort from either party given they have the same end goal in mind . Proper diet, exercise, regular sleep are all important factors for both.

Right. Your degree is very clear. I'm sure you've done a lot of research in your day. If only there were products for gaining... Oh yeah. Whereas being over weight is due to food addictions and lower metabolism. Psychology is totally basic, though. Right? Get some mass builder and shut the fuck up.

You accelerate metabolism with exercise which your fat clan seems to not do. Standing metabolisms hardly differ from "fast and slow" if you sit on your ass all day eating shit and not doing anything your metabolism will be as slow as your ability to walk up stairs. Self control, Eat clean, exercise. boom i just saved fat lives all around the globe. Pass on the news my son

"Experiments in animals and humans show that, for some people, the same reward and pleasure centers of the brain that are triggered by addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin are also activated by food, especially highly palatable foods. Highly palatable foods are foods rich in:

Sugar
Fat
Salt
Like addictive drugs, highly palatable foods trigger feel-good brain chemicals such as dopamine. Once people experience pleasure associated with increased dopamine transmission in the brain's reward pathway from eating certain foods, they quickly feel the need to eat again."

The problem with this argument is that the sources of information come from two completely different types of people.
The argument that losing weight is harder must have come from someone who was originally fat, and the argument that gaining mass is harder must have come from someone who was originally scrawny. Losing weight/gaining mass takes a different type of mindset, but they both require determination. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

Energy-consumption-wise, gaining mass would definitely be harder. You have to provide enough nutrients, exercise, training and work for your body to grow. And that shit's hard to do. With losing weight, all you have to do is stop fucking eating, nigga. That's it. Eat three small, healthy meals a day.
Mentally, however, I think losing weight would be harder. Being fat comes with so many drawbacks, but the little benefits (like dopamine releases from eating food) can overpower you when you feel like giving up on exercise. Also, the face that a fat person can work out for less time than a skinny person is probably disheartening.

The only variable that really counts for anything here is the mindset of the fat/skinny person. If you're the kind of person who gives up easily you're going to find everything difficult. If you like a challenge, you might find it difficult, but you're going to reap much more satisfying rewards. Personally, I'm of a healthy weight. I have a lot of stamina but I'm a weak noodle. I am skinny but I have no abdominal muscle (so my stomach does the flab thing even though the rest of me is fine). I think I can fix that easily. I used to do tawkwondo, so I know there's at least one sport/workout that I would enjoy, and I'm not a quitter.
On the other hand, if I were fat, I think I'd get worse and worse. I enjoy sugar. A lot. Enough to make people comment on it. And I eat at unhealthy intervals (either way too much or way too little). I also don't sleep enough, and I don't like leaving my room.
Overall, which thing is 'harder' is a personal issue, not a technical one.
And you guys are stupid for bothering to argue over it.

But thanks, because now I have motivation to actually fix these damn flabs.

are you serious? if you're fat, stop eating shit, work some cardio and high rep weight training and you'll transform within 6 months.

if you're skinny, extra carbs, extra protein, complex heavy weight training, make sure you get in big heavy full meals, get enough sleep, buy supplements, clean eating, count and manage your calories, and within 6 months you might have a healthy build that will fill out a medium sized t shirt if you're lucky and thats with being super strict with your plan.

Well, if your metabolism is anything like mine, cutting isn't really even necessary. Maybe you can scale back on the carbs during the summer, or for like a week before you want to show off, but other than that as long as you're putting the calories to good use (hard heavy workouts, muscle repair) you won't put on fat very easily.

I eat like crazy all the time, never really gone "clean" but I've always had visible abs. Clean bulking is possible, but it takes a LOT longer. It is really difficult to get the necessary amounts of calories from steamed vegetables and grilled chicken breasts, like all the "geniuses" on youtube suggest. And like I said, your body type indicates a metabolism that doesn't need to worry about putting on fat.

Just gotta eat more, if you wanna gain. Since you probably have a wicked metabolism (and playing soccer doesn't help) you can probably eat anything without putting on fat. Go for high calorie foods. Look up how to do a "dirty bulk" on google, I'm sure somebody has actually written that shit down.

Before I started lifting and eating seriously I was 135 at this height, had the same problem gaining weight. Just had to eat more.

I've given this advice a ton, and I'm always careful NOT to tell people to eat "a lot." People all have varying definitions of what "a lot" is, so I always say eat MORE. If you're not gaining, you're not eating enough, so you gotta eat more.
