See your medical provider first. A few blood tests can determine if you have an underlying metabolic reason (hypothyroid, for example). Not all weight gain is adipose tissue (fat); some can be fluid. Your medical provider can determine if you are having issues with edema (fluid retention).
Clearly, something has changed. You have gained about a pound a week, so an increased intake as little as 500 calories a day more than you need, or less calorie expenditure, could easily account for the weight gain.
Before you see your doctor, keep a food diary (accurate and honest amounts, please) for several days or a week. This will give your medical provider a good idea of your calorie intake. A dietician or nutritionist can also help you solve this dilemma.
have you been taking a new medication? i was put on lyrica and had no idea of the side affects i gained 30lbs in less then 3 months and asked my doc at next appointment and she changed them. but lots of meds have dif side affects on dif people.
Same thing happened to me, I gained 13 pounds over a period of 3.5 months without changing my diet nor taking any new medication, I was taking two hard courses and was very stressed out...so it could be caused by the Cortisol stress hormone since blood tests haven't shown anything wrong with my body. I haven't gained any weight after that damn semester was over..Unfortunately, I am still struggling to get rid of them!
