Eat anything and your appearance still remaines the same?

I know some people that could eat anything they want, from McDonalds 3-4 times a week to eating great sums of food during every meal or even between meals. Is it because they have high metabolisms?

Probably. It could be a worm or a thyroid problem. But likely metabolism, it depends on their age. Teenagers often eat amazing amounts of food and are skinny as rails, but then they often get fat when their metabolism slows down!

Or it is because they really don't eat like that every single day or for every single meal. My MIL loves to say to me "You're so lucky, you can eat all the time and not gain an ounce!" when she sees me eating a large dinner or snacking throughout the day. What she doesn't realize, is that I exercise 6 days a week and every morsel that goes in my mouth is accounted for calorie-wise.

Unless you are actually witnessing every meal of these people's lives, you really don't know if they have a high metabolism, or just watch what they eat.
