Smoking and Diet-Effects
Smoking is bad for you and everyone has heard this time and time again.
Excess weight is bad for you and everyone has heard of this time and time again also.
Many people have found out through studies and experience that smoking increases your metabolism (Nicotine, one of the many components of smoke from cigarettes, directly increases a persons energy expenditure by stimulating the central nervous system.) and helps to burn calories, which in turn, decreases weight gain.
There was a study that was done in 2007 that showed, that teenage girls who considered losing weight took up smoking to aid in losing fat.
When it comes to smoking cessation many people experience increased weight gain soon after they quit smoking.
The bottom line is that you should never use smoking to lose weight due to the enormous amount of health issues that smoking could cause and/or aggravate.
If you smoke and you decide to quit, be aware of the risks of weight gain and plan on controlling and monitoring your diet.
People who are already dealing with weight issues, and quit smoking, must concentrate on calorie expenditure and incorporating exercise in their lifestyle.http://dietdon.com/smoking-and-diet-the-link-in-controlling-weight/How Smoking Affects Weight Loss And DietViews on WeightWeight Loss Articlescontrolling weight,controlling weight by smoking,smoking and diet,smoking increases metabolism
