If you are attempting a very low carb version of paleo (under 100g daily), then you are probably glycogen depleted, and the weight gain (and loss) is just the water that is stored in the muscles along with the glycogen.

You can lose fat without working out, but for muscles to grow, they need stimulus.

First off, carbs are NOT what makes you gain muscle. When you eat a heavy carb meal, the glucose/glycogen has to be stored somewhere, so your muscles do take in as much as possible (along with about 3 grams of water for every gram of glycogen), ... (more)

I really don't know. For me, yes. I gained weight while on it. And weight went down once off it. It could depend on so many factors - individual as well as what type of birth control you take.
