hello... yes when you increase your caloric intake you tend to increase your weight.. also the change in your workout regime could be the reason as there could be less energy expenditure..all you need to do is eat small meals every 2-3 hours..fruits, nuts, sprouts, egg whites, chana kurmura as mid meals snacks..keep you dinner light like soups, salads, veggies/ chicken/ fish..avoid rotis/ rice at night..keep sipping water.. rest well..

thanks for query,
Your weight is perfect,no necessity doing dieting.
Do not be more conscious about your weight at this age as you are perfectly alright.
If there is increase of wt still about 2-3 kg nothing to worry.
You take optimum carbohydrate and fat,
Take plenty of protein,more green veggies and fruits.
Continue exercise 4 days a week.
Ok and bye.

Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.
Carbohydrates are an ideal source of energy for the body. This is because they can be converted more readily into glucose, the form of sugar that's transported and used by the body, than proteins or fats can.
Even so, a diet too high in carbohydrates can upset the delicate balance of your body's blood sugar level, resulting in fluctuations in energy and mood which leave you feeling irritated and tired.
Eating too much will lead to weight gain, regardless of what foods you get your energy from.
I advice you to consult dietitian.
