In brief: Depends

Your weight is dependent on how much food you take in and how much energy you expends each day.
If you eat more than you expend, then you gain weight. Some people are genetically trim and can eat a lot without weight gain likely from a high metabolic profile . A football player in his heydays may gain little weight eating 8 big macs a day, but most of them gain a lot of weight after retirement.
