"Anyone can become muscular if they just work hard enough" sounds to me a lot like "anyone can become fat if they just eat enough."

Both of those seem pretty plausible to me, even though admittedly it is harder for some than for others, in both cases.

When I was between the ages of 14 and 20 I was 135 pounds no matter what I ate, and I didn't watch my diet at all. I imagine I could have gained weight if I "tried hard enough" but it would have involved eating obscene amounts of sugary and fatty foods. We're talking about an "epic meal time" everyday style diet.
