Does Smoking Make You Lose Weight

Many people agree that cigarettes are bad for their health. Smoking can put an individual at an increased risk for developing several health problems including lung cancer and other illnesses.

Still, people have heard that smoking cigarettes can help them lose weight. There may be a little, vague truth behind this. Experts have done several studies on the effects of smoking. While they agree that smoking is bad for your health it actually has the ability to help you lose weight. However, as you go through the Razalean review at AP News you will find that there are several products that can help you with weight loss without any side-effects as well. 

However, at a pretty high cost. Read on, and find out (be reminded) why you should find alternative ways to lose weight…

Smoking Damages Taste Buds

Smoking causes damage to the taste buds and tar will coat the inside of the mouth. Taste buds will tell you if your food tastes good.

Once the taste buds are damaged a person will not enjoy their food as much. They may even lose the temptation to eat as much food as they once did.

They will eat until they are no longer hungry. The less food a person is eating the easier they will be able to burn off calories and lose weight.

Suppresses Appetite

Nicotine will actually suppress a person’s appetite. The more a person smokes, the less often they will get hunger pains. A person may be less hungry but they will not be getting all the nutrients that they need.

Increase Metabolism

Smoking has been found to increase metabolism. This will give a person increased energy and will allow the body to burn off more calories.

The more a person smokes the more calories they will be able to burn. It is estimated that a heavy smoker can burn up to 200 more calories each day. The only problem with this is that smoking puts you at a greater risk of developing heart diseases.

While there is some evidence smoking will help a person lose weight it is still not a safe habit. There are safer ways to lose weight without putting an individual at an increased risk for cancer and other health conditions.
