If you put in more than you take out, then you are over-eating. I 'over-eat' if one simply looks at volume (4000+ calories per day) but I also am very active and that means I require more calories to function.
Nobody can 'over-eat' and not get fat... because they are obviously burning more calories than they are putting in their bodies. Genetics plays a role, but that doesn't mean people are diseased because some food causes them to gain weight faster than myself. IF that's the case all mexicans are diseased because a lot of american style foods (with lots of cheese) makes them fat. I think that's probably bullshit.
Pay attention to your body and how it reacts to certain foods.
