    quitting smoking

    I quit smoking about six weeks ago. I have not lost a single pound since I have quit. I was wondering if anyone else has quit and had trouble dropping weight after?

    Its all in your appetite, which the cigs supress. Do the right thing with your diet and exercise regime you will defenitely lose weight.

    True that. A lot of people gain weight when they quit.

    I moved this to the appropriate forum.

    Nicotine helps increase your metabolism slightly so seeing you have no nicotine going into you anymore your metabolism is slowing down a bit. It will take a couple months to get back to normal. Keep a clean diet and exercise in the meantime and you will lose, it will just be slower. Nicotine also helps with appetite suppression.
