Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after not smoking


Avatar m tn i see a lot of pp they smoking like me (i use too) and they never losing weight, i restart smoking and losing everything , why?but the thing really is annoying is this nausea , probably now i know , why i was feel very week the beginning on this week , eating very little (because the cigarette) but now i eat i little more but the nausea kill me . any suggestion?
Avatar f tn Some people have nausea and vomiting and some have sores in their mouths so they may be losing weight because they are not eating much. In addition, I make sure I get plenty of fat. I would rather gain a few pounds and get rid of this virus than skimp on the fat and end up keeping the virus. Incivek, espceially, needs that 20 grams of fat every time.
Avatar n tn When focusing on weight loss instead of measuring on a scale try measuring yourself with a tape measure and see the inches come off. It is common the inches go first before the weight drops off. Next I would look at your diet, how many meals a day? Portion size? % of fat, carbs, protein consuming in a day approx? Do you et late at night? Are you eating to many calories for your body? How much sodium are you taking in as that can cause you to retain water?
Avatar n tn As far as exercise, get some weights and do some weight training, or do some push-ups. Cardio is not necessary for losing weight. In fact, I believe that running too much can be bad for you. That's a whole other topic of conversation. Stick to high-intensity workouts for shorter periods & you'll be healthier. Also, remember that it's not what you do at the gym that makes you look/feel great, it's what you do at home in the kitchen that counts.
Avatar f tn Smoking actually increases your risk of developing thyroid disease. Every link you find that lists risk factors for developing a thyroid disease lists smoking as a risk factor. I say that as a smoker of 35 years now. I can't explain any of what you have experienced other than to say I feel it is coincidental. It's possible that stopping smoking stressed your system to the point it threw off your hormones.
Avatar m tn Whether or not you stop smoking, probably has little to do with losing weight. But you will have to change your eating/exercise habits. Healthy food doesn't have to be unpleasant, neither does exercise. I'm sorry to say, that you can't keep doing exactly the same things and expect a different outcome.
Avatar n tn Now I worry about my weight. I was working on losing weight when I got preg lost over 200 pounds was at 197 when I got prey. Now I'm up to 225. My doctor told me to cut back on food but if I eat any less I'll be starving myself. Is 28 pounds a lot to gain by 29 weeks? I'm worried I won't lose it.
1738455 tn?1310867954 I've been a smoker for 20 years now... and 26 days ago, I just quit smoking "cold turkey" do I expect any side-effects on the abrupt stoppage? I am regularly exercising (Bike and run) almost everyday and I am on a diet too when I quit the cigarettes... Meanwhile, just an information for those who would like to quit: "The only way that I found effective for me to quit smoking is the Diet... after meticulously eating only healthy foods...

1043311 tn?1253217338 my question is that nicotine exits the body in 72 hours, does that depend on weight?
Avatar m tn I'm not a health professional but have read a lot of reports from my own stress tests, and it sounds like you have a strong heart. An ejection fractions of 70% is something those of us with heart problems would embrace. However, you were given a big warning. Your family history suggests heart problems will visit you, especially because you smoke and are considered obese. I'ts not easy to quit, I know, but certainly it's possible. Losing weight is tough, also.
Avatar n tn Well first let me say im no expert here ...but i see a few things. 1. you're doing wieght training so you're likely adding muscle while burning fat..muscle weighs more than fat so i would suggest you ignore the scale for a bit. 2. you might try doing weigth training only 2 or 3 days a week to stay toned and add a bit to the cardio.. may not be eating enough ..
Avatar m tn Overweight, large neck circumference, structurally abnormal airway, smoking, alcohol and sleeping pills can be some causes. Losing weight is one of the best things to do, avoid alcohol, smoking and sleeping on to your back. You need to consult a sleep specialist for sleep study assessment. Take care.
Avatar f tn Hi Sammyg, Don't be discouraged with no weight loss in two weeks! Some people may lose 5-10 lbs immediately starting a new diet, but that is usually water weight and not true loss. I gained 25-30 lbs without diet change and while exercising a lot in 2015 and 2016. I lost 25 lbs in 2017 after realizing how much weight I had gained (and while having other hypo symptoms) by upping my exercise regime and counting every single calorie I ate for about a year.
Dog Hi! Weight gain and loss can be very difficult to explain or understand. It certainly sounds like your calorie intake is less than your calorie outgo--meaning that you should be in negative balance. It may be that your body has entered starvation mode since your calorie restriction is so severe. In starvation mode, your body hangs on to every bit of weight possible. It is also possible that you haven't waited long enough.
Avatar f tn If I continue losing weight at this rate I definately will not be a decent weight at 40.It will be 42 by the time I reach a decent weight and 43 by the time I reach ideal weight.How ever its not that bad cant complain Im lucky that I can still lose weight and havent stuffed my body up completely over the years of losing putting on and I always lost 26 kg fairly quickly.(maybe thats why things didnt work).Ive heard losing weight slowly is the best way.
Avatar f tn Hi im 36 years old, weigh 62 kilos (136 pounds) and im 5 foot 2 inches, ive been using the Wii Fit plus for 3 weeks 1/2 hour of jogging and 1/2 doing step with weights for my arms every day, im eating healthy lots of fruit, smoothies and keeping to 1200 calories a day, i am an active person without excercise but have been keeping to my 1 hour a day and im not losing weight, infact my weight goes up and down by 2 pounds nearly everyday!
Avatar f tn I know that is due to not smoking and I expected some weight gain from that. But, I still have no energy. I am calling my doctor tomorrow to ask for more blood work. What should I specifically ask for? I am ready to start smoking again just to make me go to the bathroom. NOT. Any advice would be helpful.
290867 tn?1333569278 With DS I lost a little weight and started gaining after I quit smoking, probably cause I was keeping my mouth busy, lol. This time I didn't gain a thing until about 23 weeks, and now at 39 weeks 3 days I've gained 35 lbs...NO clue how I've gained that much in 16 weeks, but yeah...if the dr doesn't seem worried, I wouldn't worry too much yet. As far as the smoking goes, with DS they got nasty and made me feel sick so I was able to quit easily. This time was harder.
644974 tn?1312758070 looking for other opinions and how you are all going with weight gaining as before when i was smoking i was only putting on minimal weight its depressing! soorry needed to vent as hubby keeps saying ur fine u look great!!!!
