Smoking And Weight Loss

Introduction And Background The name of the article must make you wonder because weight loss is one of the most difficult things to do for a person, especially one who is very fond of food and smoking is one of the easiest things to do for a person, especially one who likes dealing with any kind of stress that way. It could also be that perhaps he or she are just in the habit of smoking. However, many people resort to thinking that perhaps smoking and weight loss are deeply connected and if one smokes, they can easily lose weight. This article will help you to understand the connection between the two and how exactly it affects weight loss and whether or not it is worth to smoke to lose weight. Read on further and enlighten yourself!

The Truth To Things Smoking does make you lose weight and there are many factors behind it to be honest. It could be a psychological factor, maybe having a smoke makes you feel that you have already eaten something and don’t feel like having a meal after that. It also leaves a strange taste in your mouth which might not make food as enjoyable as it used to be. In fact, smoking heavily destroys some of the taste buds! More than that, it also accelerates your metabolism and makes you burn calories on a faster rate. Imagine the combination of that, increasing metabolism and a decreased appetite. That does add up to weight loss if you do simple math. The tobacco and nicotine present in the cigarettes are responsible for the appetite suppression that most smokers suddenly face. There is also research being done that nicotine can easily make your cravings for sugary sweet stuff lessen because they reduce the insulin levels in the body. Keeping all these things in mind, one can easily say that smoking does have a positive effect on weight loss and that smokers can lose weight quicker than those who do not smoke.

Another Thing To Keep In Mind But there is another thing to keep in mind. Those who quit smoking will also face weight gain unless they really control their diet. Otherwise, it would become very difficult for them because leaving smoking can really enhance your cravings and for the lack of something to do, one begins to eat. It does not happen to everyone but it still happens to a lot of people and there is significant evidence to prove that weight gain does occur if one does not keep up the habit of smoking. This is a dangerous cycle to begin with.

Should You Ever Rely On Or Try Smoking For Weight Loss? The answer to that is no. Even if you feel that weight loss is not happening at all and think of smoking as your last resort, you should still never smoke for weight loss. It is a bad habit anyway and causes a lot of damage to your body. It can ruin your lungs, lower your immunity, cause infections, give you throat problems and get you addicted and this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many more harmful effects of smoking that if you think about it, it is not worth it at all to start smoking or continue smoking just because you want to lose weight. You should lose weight naturally if you can rather than rely on such a dangerous mechanism occurring in your body and turn to other things to help you produce the same effects.

Things Aside From Smoking You can try out other things aside from smoking to produce the same effects that smoking gives you. Raising your metabolic rate is not hard, you just need to exercise and maybe eat or drink the right stuff. Green tea raises your metabolic rate, maybe even more than smoking does. Isn’t it better to have a beneficial herbal tea to get that rather than have a cancerous object stuck in your mouth? Appetite suppression can also occur if you eat the things that suppress your appetite or try out appetite suppression supplements that are available. There are also numerous other mechanisms, all safer and better than smoking a cigarette.

Conclusion Although many people are in the habit of smoking and it is become very common and hard to let go of, one should never think of smoking to lose weight. It should not even be the last resort you turn to and should never be an option on the table. If you want to lose weight and want to remain a healthy person, there are many other things you can do, as said above. All you have to do is have the courage, information and determination to do so and you’ll be fine.
