Many things: Start by looking at your calories in versus calories out. While an imbalance in that area is most likely the cause, you should consult your doctor as a number of medical conditions and medications can cause weight gain. Things to consider when speaking to your doctor include changes in diet, changes in activity, weight change over time, and other symptoms you may be experiencing.
