I am one who gained 10 pounds when I lowered protein and upped the fat too.

Once I was truly in NK, I had to drop the fat in my diet in order to let my body use my own fat for weight loss happen. I increased calories in the beginning and I too gained 10 pounds quickly. It took months of hard work to lose that weight. Once I started testing blood ketones and found I wasn't in NK at all, I was able to change things and see results.

If you google "keto calculator", you can see a range of calories from BMR to maintenance. It shows you between 1400 and 1650. If you were eating close to 1600, you are like me and will gain weight. I have to stay at or below BMR to lose weight. You can also play with the numbers and see how it will effect your weight loss over 1 year.
