I have done some reading recently on smoking because I have smoked for 18 years and hate it. From what I have been able to find out nicotine is actually an appetite suppressant and metabolism stimulant. However, it is not enough of one to justify starting such a nasty and deadly habit. People will often gain weight after they quit, in part because of no longer taking in nicotine, but more so because they feel a strong urge to do something with their hands and mouth to replace the act of smoking. If you do smoke or are thinking of starting, your going to sabotage your weight loss because the more you smoke the worse your lungs get, so as far as exercising goes your screwing yourself! Trust me, I've gotten to the point where talking on the phone and walking around the house at the same time leaves me out of breath!

Smoking itself doesn't make you lose weight, it's that you lose your appetite and don't eat as much. it depends on what kind of drug it is

Smoking tends to suppress appetites and cause you to lose weight.

It's possible, but since most people get the "muchies" from smoking weed, you'd probably gain weight instead of lose it.

You may lose weight while smoking because instead of eating your smoking. But as soon as you quit smoking, you will gain even more weight, very quickly.So you can't rely on smoking.

You don't lose weight from smoking marijuana. You gain weight because you get the munchies when high, and eat a lot.

Smoking does not make you lose or gain weight. People have atendency to gain weight when they try to quit smoking because they feel they have a need to put some thing in their mouths. No cigarette = put comfort food in mouth = gain of weight.

It's unclear whether starting smoking actually helps a nonsmoker to lose weight. However, quitting smoking DEFINITELY causes weight gain. So if your plan is to somehow start smoking, lose weight, and then quit (assuming you are able to do so), this is NOT a good weight loss tactic. Especially when you consider that the risks of smoking are FAR greater than the risks of carrying around a few extra pounds (or even alot of extra pounds). Furthermore, smoking reduces your ability to exercise, which is VERY important when it comes to losing weight and keeping the weight off.

If you smoke rather that eat when you are emotional it does. But smoking kills.

I recently quit smoking and was able to keep the weight off by walking briskly and reducing my intake of carbs.

You are more likely to gain weight by substituting food for nicotine.

User Avatar

yea. Smoking affects your weight control by making you lose your appetite every time you smoke. It can make you lose weight, but it could also go vice versa (right?). Improve it if it's wrong.

Grapefruit has no special ability to "make" you, or cause you to, lose weight. Controlling your intake of carbohydrates and calories, however, will help you to lose weight..
