I am diagnosed with Schizophrenia, paranoid type. I am looking to find out if there are any anti-psychotic medications which do not have side-effects of weight gain.

Personally, I would stay away from Geodon, because it causes the person to sleep for sometimes up to 12 hours per day and still feel drousy. On the other hand, I know many people who have had weight gain from Abilify.
From what I've been told, Seroquel is by far the best antipsychotic drug.
