Quit cigarettes, keep excess pounds at bay

You don't need to hang on to a cigarette to keep your weight in check. Read on to see how you can look slim without lighting up.

It's a common sight to see models and young girls smoking in order to remain slim. Unfortunately after a few years, they can't quit smoking even if they want to because their bodies have got accustomed to nicotine stimulation. Some girls also fear that they will become obese after giving up smoking. This is because after one kicks the habit, their taste buds improve and they tend to enjoy their food more. This leads to eating larger quantities.

Biologically too, after giving up smoking the basal metabolic rate goes down and the body burns fewer calories. Also many people start binging on snacks in order to resist the temptation of smoking.
