The ass is always leaner on the other side of the gym. Take it from a former fat boy, we'd all like to be walking around with six packs and striations, but we just weren't made that way.
Also, you're right: losing WEIGHT is easy. However, losing FAT is a bitch. it requires cadio and nutrient timing and so many fucking chicken breasts that I would have been thrown out of my house a long time ago if my family didn't need the eggs. (BaDUMdum.)
So, stop ranting and start eating before Professor X starts asking you how many calories you're getting a day and then sits on you when he doesn't like the answer. And I don't think anyone's ever seen him like the answer.
