Sorry but this is an excuse people make. Metabolism doesn't have nearly the impact on weight that people imagine, but the effect that it does have can be boosted by exercising. If you have a poor metabolism, you can change that.
Weight loss/gain really isn't some mystery, its physics. Calories in, calories out. Your body isn't cheating you, but you might be underestimating how much you eat or overestimating the amount of calories you are burning.
