    I have it the other way around, gaining weight.

    My whole life i'm a total skinny lightweight guy, but you never see commercials or products on that, its always about losing weight instead of gaining.

    Yea I can't put on weight either, but I don't really care much, the doctor says I'm healthy so no worries.

    losing weight is hard? Like they make books on how to lose 1 KG in 2 weeks, and you can lose more than that in the same period. For me, I lost 4.2 KGs in 2 weeks (I could've lost more than that if I followed the diet correctly last week <_<), just by following a diet (I don't go to a gym, and I only play one and a half hour of soccer WEEKLY).

    LOL, before you start following a diet, you feel like it's so damn hard, but I guess it's not

    Because it is physically harder for some people to lose weight.

    Having the will to lose weight is only half the battle, you have to also have a decent metabolism, eat a decent diet, and have the time to invest in exercising, which gets harder and harder as you get older.

    I can't speak from experience here, because it's tremendously easy for me to lose weight; I wrestled in high school for 4 years and there were times when I had to lose ridiculous amounts of weight in short amounts of time. For senior year, I cut down from 155 lbs to 125 in about two and a half weeks. At about 5'10'' I was losing more muscle than anything at that point.

    I used to be seriously skinny; you'd be able to see my ribs without stretching, but when I hit 15 or 16 I just started to pile on the weight really fast. I'm not obese by any stretch of the imagination, but I am overweight.

    I've been dieting for the last month and a half (healthy food, no snacks/sweets/etc, craploads of water every day), exercising strenuously for an hour every day (can't do as much as I'd like due to asthma), and I've lost half a stone (7lbs), where I've known people to lose a helluva lot more in the same space of time.

    Unfortunately, it really is, quite literally, hard for some people to lose weight.

    It's just like it's hard for me to gain weight, almost impossible. I have a really good metabolism so I eat all the junk food i want and stay the same weight. I went 3 months without exercising and ate fast food at least once a day, while eating 3 full meals a day plus snacks. I drank mostly soda and didn't eat anything healthy. I gained maybe a pound.
