I once at 5,000 calories a day when I was Olympic lifting and didn't gain a single pound. I weighed 190lbs at the time, not fat. I was "over eating" like a mother ****er, fast food almost every night just to get calories.
I didn't gain a single pound so technically I was not over-eating like you would claim. Metabolism is influenced by exercise. Want to eat what you currently are but not gain weight...burn more calories and increase your resting metabolism.
The people who you say are over-eating probably have increased their metabolism and thus get to eat more than your fat/sedentary friends who watch what they eat.
