Can you lose weight as fast as you gain it?

i doubt it. losing weight takes way longer and more effort. but it also depends on the individual

being tall... i have a much harder time adding mass than someone of a shorter variety. Cutting is very easy for me. Once I get the cardio up to 6 days/wk for a couple weeks it just seems to fall off.
It all depends on the person, their body type, and the amount of work they put in.

I would say gaining weight is easier because theoretically you can go way over your calorie maintenance (whether you can keep that food down is another matter), but you cannot go ridiculously under maintenence.

I disagree. Building muscle takes quite a bit of time for the average trainee, but losing fat can be done much more quickly by comparison.

Now if we're talking just weight, not building muscle and losing fat, that's another thing althogether.

depends on what type of weight you are talking about... I could gain a lot of fat pretty easy, but putting slabs of meat on my body is very hard for me. I am 6'4" @ 215 right now. There is no way personally I could add 10 lbs of quality mass just as fast as someone who is 5'8" @ 215

For me, losing weight is easier in the sense of doing it. I'd rather be eating 2200 calories a day than 3500 anyday. I can't wait till my clean bulk is over.... I couldn't imagine eating 5k calories +
