Smoking and weight gain


Lawrence says:-If you are a smoker, you may want to make this next year, the year that you quit. You may not have quit so far because you are afraid of gaining weight. But that is the devil's lie.

The average weight gain is 5 pounds! In fact, 10 percent of smoker lose weight when they quit. The reason for the weight gain is that people quit often have a craving for sweets. Gaining a few pounds is a small price to pay compared to the risks from smoking.

To avoid weight gain when you quit, eat low fat foods lke raw vegetables, limit sugar intake, and drink six to eight glasses of water a day to leach any remaining nicotine out of the body. A program of dient and exercise can eliminate weight gain. Stop smoking, execrise, and give up fried foods and sweets. This coud be the year you stop smoking!
