In brief: Genetics + diet

Many have genes that will allow them to infact waste calories they ingest which keeps them thinner (you know them - people who seem to be able to eat and eat and never gain weight).
Others have efficient genes which hold onto calories and these easily gain weight. Intelligent diet and exercise will work for all to get to ideal weight, but is always hard to accomplish.
