You're consuming more calories than you think you are, simple.

Post up your exact diet and exercise routine.

Only 0.01% of people have different metabolism, 50% claim it.

You might be suffering from an underactive Thyroid, which often causes unexplained weight gain/difficulty to lose weight, especially low metabolism/fatigue (as Thyroid gland plays crucial role in regulating metabolism) etc. You have to see your GP and you might get a blood test done.

I only eat three times a day and its hard to know how many Calories there are in homemade food
I get confused when people say that its cause of the carbs

That sounds like half of what you should be eating.

How heavy and tall are you?

That seems like a symptom to me as well, other symptoms might be constantly feeling low/depressed, hair loss. But from what you have already mentioned you should see your GP. Sometimes, the symptoms that you have i.e. difficulty losing weight, low metabolism are the only symptoms of Hypothyroidism (underactive Thyroid).
Just see your GP, get and ultrasound of your Thyroid done, blood test and you will know more (won't take much time).

Find out your TDEE then start counting your calories and weigh your food. You'll quickly realise why your weight isn't changing.

Here is my my fitness pal:http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/dia...ate=2014-09-30

You should use it(haven't used it for a few days -_- lol) but yeah it measures it more accurately. I found that like a 12inch pizza pretty much fills all your calories, maybe you are eating something jam packed with calories but yeah you should also go to the doc to get the thyroid checked out.

Fat people actually have faster metabolisms. The metabolism excuse to gain/lose weight is a myth.
