Diet is Key in Kicking the Smoking Habit

The average person who quits smoking gains anywhere from 4 lbs, all the way up to 30 lbs! This is why many experts are suggesting that smokers stop eating sugar and most carbs before they quit smoking.  This will make quitting smoking much easier and save you from obesity, which happens to be even more deadly than smoking!

  2. Adequate nutrition minimizes depression and anxiety, which can easily occur when you smoking.

  4. A healthy diet is going to make you feel stronger and more alert, enabling you to have more willpower to quit.
