In brief: Gain weight fast
Our bodies, like animals, are designed via evolution to be efficient.
The body tries to waste as little energy as possible and store as much as it can. Therefore, we store energy easily (gain weight), and find it tough to lose weigh. The key is to burn off more calories than you take in through routine exercise and healthy eating.
