Re: People Lose Weight in the Long Run

Hi there,

As a person who has recently gained 50 pounds, and who weighs 100 pounds more than She did in high school 15 years ago...I CAN RELATE. LOLOL

I wish I could remember where I read this, but I found some research on sites that says that yes people tend to gain 5-10 punds right after quitting, but in the longer scheme of things they actually *lose* weight as thier body normalizes from all the toxicity of smoking.

Often our bodies pack on fat to distribute the mount of toxins to a safe ratio. More fat = less concentrated toxins.

As I stated in previous posts, I quit smoking 2 months ago. I gained 9 pounds the first month but this month I am losing weight, and I changed virtually nothing.

Here's someething you may want to check out. Smoking goies to a certain part of the brain - the pleasure center - same as heroin and sugar. Do you like sugar/breads/pastas? Same part of the brain. You are probably deficient in beta-endorphin which many smokers/sugar eaters are.

I found this eating plan (not a diet - I actually eat more ths way) that helps deal with cravings/beta endorphin production. It really levels out the body chemistry for all of this. It has helped me immensely and I am still only on step one.

You may want to check it out at

Best of luck!
