Can not eating sweets help you lose weight fast?

Weight gain is due the lack of a healthy lifestyle. Eating sugar does not make you gain weight. In fact, sugar is the first substance quickly absorbed by the body to create energy. Fatty carbohydrates are the ones that cause weight gain. Meat and bread and grains have high fat content. The best way to maintain a healthy weight is plenty of exercise, a balanced diet (not gorging on food and healthy food choices), many small meals throughout the day instead of three large meals. Skipping meals can make the body to store more fat thus causing weight gain. Alcohol also plays a major role in weight gain. A glass of wine at dinner each night will not make you gain weight, three or more beers a day can. --Kelsey

How long should you expect to gain weight after quitting smoking?

People gain weight when they quit smoking because cigarettes are an appetite suppressant. Most people who smoke replace snacking and/or meals with cigarette smoking. When someone quits smoking, they will notice that they are hungry more often. Usually, they will replace smoking with snacking and/or eating more often. If you recently quit smoking, and you do not want to gain weight from increased appetite, then try snacking on fruits and vegetables. Count the calories in your meals. Lower calorie meals can be just as filling as higher calorie meals. You will continue to gain weight as long as your calorie intake exceeds the amount of calories you are burning during a normal day. A good average is 2000 calories a day for men and 1500 calories a day for women to maintain your weight. How long you continue to gain weight is affected by many variables, but on average, a person will level out after 4-8 months. However, the potential to continue to gain weight, continuously, does exsist. If you are diligent about watching your calorie intake, you will be fine.
