    Fat metabolism

    I recently stopped eating chips and chocolate bars; I used to eat them without even acknowledging how much I was eating. I gained 5 pounds in two and half weeks. Possible predisposing factors?: removal of four feet of small intestine apx 17yrs ago due to acute scar tissue over growth + diet of vegetarian, apx 6months ago, with exception of small amounts of cream in store bought coffees. I'm not writing this to boast, I really would like an opinion as to why I'm all of a sudden gaining weight once I stop eating chocolate and chips. Previous weight 110lbs, weight now 115lbs, height 5'6. Small boned. No medical diagnosis, actually very healthy.
