he does not get fat maybe because he has faster metabolism.. another theory: this might be something related to thyroid gland's production of hormones... to gain weight more, eat protein-rich foods.. this builds up more muscles, than fat.. muscles add to weight, remember?

maybe you're right that he eats much. but if he does heavy work, this burns a lot of calories...he should eat more than he does work to get some weight.

@heena Tapeworms aren't really a problem in developed countries... I know they're still pretty common in Africa and Asia, but in Western Europe or North America, you have to be really really unlucky and/or go on a tropical vacation to pick one up.

getting fat doesn't only depends on quantity of food taken.... he/she is not getting fat . so there can be the following reasons.. (i) any kind of intestinal parasite , as said by heena.. (ii) he/she is unable to digest the food ingested.. (iii) assimilation is not taking place properly... (iv) any prob in liver... (v)GENES can also be responsible for ths.... might his parents didn't have the tendency to get fat.... (vi) all his carbohydrates are metabolised perfectly( fast metabolism)...

I would only like to add that Hyperthyriodism could be also be a cause, a balance in your body between HDL & (VDL &VLDL).

@rahulchatterjee Glad i could add something to the already well covered reasons/causes which you and a few other took the liberty of providing.

Oh, and according to recent research Gut flora has a major key role in it aswell. If that's where the reason behind obesity is, it's as simple as a broadspectrum antibiotic treatment. Once it's over just eat the excrement of one with the gut flora which doesn't allow obesity. I learned this while attending a lecture held by "Sahlgrenska Center for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research, CMR".
