In brief: Not likely

Food allergies is an immediate immune response caused by your body's reaction to the specific food.
Your change in diet because of a food allergy may have you increasing sugars/carbs which may cause weight gain. Any suspicion of food allergy should be properly evaluated by an allergist with both blood and skin testing.
