This happened to me at first too and I am still at WW for the behavioral changes I need. Here are a few things I discovered:
1)Beans are not my best friend no matter how much I love them they seem to make me retain water. I have to limit them to 1/2C and not everyday. Lentils are not as harsh(for me at least).
2)Imitation meats have the same effect and they can be creepy sometimes.
3)Higher fiber has to be built up slowly and I MUST drink 6-8 glasses of water to help this get through my system.
4)Fritos are vegan. My point is that not all vegan foods are good for us.
5)Whole grain and vegetables will NEVER do you wrong but if you are eating those and still gaining, measure stuff. I know they say that vegans do not need to weigh and measure, however if you need to do that to get to a weight you are comfortable with, go ahead. Make your recipes and count the servings so your not going crazy with points.
Good luck I am still learning everyday that I am not like anyone else on this journey, listen to your body see what works for you. Faith
