Ideal Weight 112-150: Weight change is due to a difference in the number of calories taken in (food) versus the number of calories expended (used in daily activity). In your case, you are eating more calories than you are using. In the us, the average person eats close to 3500 cal per day or more, but may only need 2000 calories, therefore the excess calories are stored as fat (weight gain). Talk to your doctor.
