Weight Gain/Loss Due to Reduced Smoking

There have been numerous studies regarding the link between body weight and smoking. “Can quit smoking increase weight?”. There is no perfect answer to this question. Different studies have proven different results. However, a majority of people experience weight gain after reducing or quitting smoking. There are a few reasons for weight gain.

When one stops smoking, the body’s metabolism functions smoothly as non-polluted oxygen goes into the lungs making it free from pollution which ultimately result in weight gain. Although the amount of weight gained varies from person to person, studies show that on average, people gain somewhere between 5 to 10 pounds or 2.25 to 4.5 kilograms in the months after they have entirely stopped smoking.

In some cases, people have gained over 10 Kilograms after quitting smoking. Smoking can also result in weight loss because it increases the metabolic rate which in turn decreases the caloric absorption rate thus causing low appetite. A misconception is that smoking helps relieve stress. When in fact, studies have proven that smoking actually increases anxiety and tension. Some individuals respond to stress with increase food-intake while others may reduce food-intake. As a result, they are not only losing weight they are also susceptible to various serious diseases which could be irreversible or fatal. Moreover, after these people stop smoking, they may be more prone to weight gain, than the non-smokers.

It is unfortunate how we become captives to our desires or bad habit knowing that smoking is injurious to health but don’t have the willpower to quit smoking.
