Why do you care about the number a piece of metal and plastic tells you? Just eat what makes you feel good.

IMO, too much canned food. High sodium retains water. I agree also , you may be overtraining and not giving your body time to heal and it's considering itself injured and holding all calories.

If you are worried about fat gain, you should get your body fat measured--caliper or bodypod if you can afford it. Scales are notoriously inaccurate--you've likely put on some nice muscle.

It sounds like you do not eat enough for your activity level, so your body is trying to hold on to fat stores because of higher cortisol consentrations. Up your carbs a bit, and your total calories for a few weeks and watch the weight come off. (more)
