Losing weight while not smoking

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while not smoking


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 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 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 f tn Okay let me make myself clear!!! I'm not smoking cannabis right now with my baby girl been clean sincr the get go! But im sooooo curious and have a question? If some doctors recommend cannabis while pregnant can you still get your baby taken away from CPS? That just doesn't make sence too me? Like i said im not currently smokinh i was a smoker prior pregnancy i love my baby girl and would never risk her being taken from me!
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar f tn I quit smoking at 5 weeks because it made me so sick! My girlfriend is also prego and she has been struggling to quit! She got an e CIG from the gas station and it has helped! But her doctor told her if she can't quit and it's stressing her out then she shouldn't quit fully! The stress is worse for the baby then smoking. So she is smoking 3 cigs a day now and she's 28 weeks. Smoking gives lower birth weights and can cause lung issues for your baby.
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 Losing 32 lbs in 13 days, along with coping with nicotine's absence, represents your body is under massive shock, an extremely unhealthy situation imo. Assorted and varied symptoms seem likely enough.
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 m tn I stopped drinking alcohol for 17 days now and I am losing weight. I lOst about 3 kilos in this period. I also had some stress but my experianse with stress did not show weight lose I. The past. Can that be a reason of this weight lose? Or is this something I need to go to the doctor for?
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.
Avatar f tn Will this even out as my body gets used to no smoking? Not looking to lose pounds but inches, lots of inches!! Oh, and what do think of the shoes MBT's Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn Nicotine is a stimulant. Hence, it would increase your metabolism and cause you to lose weight, plus give you energy. You probably feel like *&*^ when you are not smoking because you've been smoking for 20 years. It's an addiction and your body is adjusting to not having the drug. I'm also assuming you enjoy smoking so you feel better when you're doing something you enjoy, right? Why don't you get assistance with quitting next time.....Doctor....support group....etc.
Avatar f tn My morning sickness started around 5 am every morning until around 6pm .. smh. Well I started losing wait and still not eating I just could eat popsicles. . So one day I tried smoking and it helped with the pain and keeping the food down . I know several people that has smoked through out there pregnancy which I dont wanna be that one the doctor says its not to much of a harm.. I was thinking maybe instead of smoking I could eat it idk I just want to my baby to be safe and healthy.
Avatar n tn Most experts recommend 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four days a week, along with two or three days of weight-bearing, resistance exercise (such as weight lifting). This is sufficient to achieve satisfying results. You can exercise daily or on alternate days, depending on the availability of time. Walking is one of the simplest aerobic exercises. You can vary the intensity to match your fitness level.
1043311 tn?1253217338 my question is that nicotine exits the body in 72 hours, does that depend on weight?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!
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.. 3.you may not be eating enough ..
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.
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
Avatar f tn It's not good to purposely lose weight while pregnant. It keeps the baby from getting the nutrients it needs. If you eat right and healthy and go for walks it'll keep you from gaining so much weight. In some cases women do lose some weight but no more than couple lbs. You might wanna find a new doc if he was concerned about you AND baby He would of put you on a special diet. But he shouldn't be telling you to purposely lose weight.
