When I quit smoking a few months ago, I decided to restart my weight loss program at the same time. I thought I could counteract the weight gain from quitting and maybe lose some pounds.
In the past three or four months, I have I lost 20 pounds. And I have never lost weight that easily. I was so proud of myself and my program. Then I came across research that says that nicotine gum, in combination with caffeine has a thermogenic effect.
So, it appears that my healthy eating and exercise program is getting a boost from my gum chewing and coffee drinking. I love my weight loss, but I am basically using a weight loss aid to do much of it. I hope I don't regain once I wean myself off the gum.
Anyway, I wanted to share this bit of news. Any other nicotine gum users out there?
