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!
