RE : How to Control Weight After You Quit Smoking?
It is always the best if one can stop smoking for better health. However, most of the smokers who quit doing so would face the same problem. They gain much weight after they quit smoking. Is this effect applicable to everyone? Not really. It only happens to those heavy smokers who have smoked for more than 10 years. For those light smokers, they hardly gain weight when they quit.
In fact, gaining some weight is a normal outcome. Nothing to be worried as it is the effect of nicotine leaving the body. In average, smokers who stop smoking normally gain about 10 pounds. If they gain excessive weight, they are advised to consult the doctors to avoid from overweight problem.
