Fat is at the very least 4-5 times faster to lose than it is to gain muscle. Also it takes no excercise to lose it. All you have to do is not put food in your mouth.
So if you want to get technical it actualy takes less work to lose fat than it does to maintain your weight.
People that say loseing fat is harder than putting on muscle must be weak minded because it is clearly a mental issue to consider not being able to eat ice cream and pizza for a couple of weeks harder than lifting heavy weight and eating large amounts for YEARS.
While it’s true that some people make every aspect of every physique pursuit more complicated and more difficult than it needs to be and also that most issues are a matter of discipline in some form, I’m not ready to say that it’s never quite difficult for some folks to get lean.
However, I DO suspect that some who believe gaining lean is easier than losing fat have less than spectacular visions what gaining means.
