What Causes Weight Gain After Quitting

When nicotine, a chemical in cigarette smoke, leaves your body, you may experience the following:

1- Short-term weight gain. The nicotine kept your body weight low, and when you quit smoking, your body returns to the weight it would have been had you never smoked.

2- You might gain 3 to 5 pounds due to water retention during the first week after quitting.

3- A need for fewer calories. After you stop smoking, you may use fewer calories than when you were smoking.

But the health risks of smoking are far greater than the risks of gaining 5 to 10 pounds. Smoking causes more than 400,000 deaths each year in the United States alone.

You would have to gain about 100 to 150 pounds after quitting to make your health risks as high as when you smoked.

To avoid gaining weight when you quit smoking, you need to become more physically active and improve your eating habits before you stop.

Physical activity helps to control your weight by increasing the number of calories your body uses. Making healthy changes to your eating habits will prevent weight gain by controlling the amount of calories you eat.

The Nutrition Facts Label that is found on most processed food products can also help you select foods that meet your daily nutritional needs.
