Quitting Smoking & Weight Gain

We know quitting smoking may cause you to gain a few extra pounds; but, new research shows people gain more than once thought.

Researchers looked at about 60 cases of weight gain in former smokers.

One year after quitting smoking, they gained nine{}to 11 pounds.

This is more than the six pounds thought to come with smoking cessation.

But, don't let this stop you from quitting, a healthy diet and regular exercise will help minimize weight gain.
