Probably Not: From the list above. Remember that taking in more calories than required for daily maintenance may get stored as excess weight. First, be certain about your intake. Keeping a daily log on myfitnesspal.Com may clarify things. Calculating one's daily needs requires a formula: an app like "calorie calculator" can help. Good luck!

Yes: Vegetarian diet is not neccesarily a weight loss diet. Their are many overweight vegetarians. You still need to reduce overall caloric intake and increase excercise. Antihistamines do increase apetite and contribute to weight gain. Counselling to reduce anxiety may be helpful.
