Weight-Control Myths Keep Many U.S. Women Smoking. Anti-tobacco efforts should focus on these concerns, researchers say. And a 10 percent increase in exposure to anti-smoking messages was associated with a 12 percent increase in attempts to quit among female U.S. smokers who did not believe that smoking helps control weight, but no increase in quit attempts among those who thought smoking helped control weight. Weight-Control Myths Keep Many U.S.

Women Smoking. Anti-tobacco efforts should focus on these concerns, researchers say. Please note: This article was published more than one year ago. The facts and conclusions presented may have since changed and may no longer be accurate.

And “More information” links may no longer work. MONDAY, April 13, 2015 (HealthDay News) American women who believe smoking helps control weight are less likely than other female smokers to try quitting in response to higher cigarette prices and anti-smoking messages, a new study finds. “American women who believe smoking helps control weight are less likely than other female smokers to try quitting in response to higher cigarette prices and anti-smoking messages, a new study finds.” Read the article above for more information. Have you or someone you know put off quitting smoking for fear of gaining weight if you do?

Weight-Control Myths Keep Many U.S. Women Smoking Some Expert Tips to Help Smokers Finally Quit in 2015 Anti-Smoking Campaign Successful and Cost-Effective, CDC Says. Five pounds was also the don’t-pass-go number in a later study of women smokers.

Myth: Smoking affects your metabolism. Reality: When it comes to smoking and weight loss, metabolism—how your body processes food for energy, often gets the credit for weight control. Smoking does increase your metabolic rate, but only slightly.

Smoking cigarettes increases your metabolism, so you burn more calories. When you stop smoking, you may burn fewer calories, which can lead to weight gain. Regular exercise can help you continue to burn those calories.

Just 10 minutes of exercise a day can make a difference. “The best way to reduce the risks of smoking is to quit smoking altogether, not exercising more and eating better,” Hatsukami says. Nicotine patches and gum are as bad for me as smoking. MYTH.

Every year in the U.S., more than 480,000 people die from tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke, making it the leading cause of preventable death in this country. Tragically, each day thousands.

Women around the world are more likely than men to say that they smoke to suppress their appetite (Reid et al., 2009), and women are concerned about gaining weight if they quit smoking (Larsen, Otten, & Engels, 2009).

Placental weight, which normally increases with cigarette smoking, an effect hypothesized to be due to compensatory hypertrophy induced by chronic fetal hypoxia, was found to decrease significantly in women smoking ≥15 cigarettes/day and ingesting ≥300 mg of caffeine/day (21).

Interestingly, although others have investigated concern about gestational weight gain and postpartum weight loss as predictors of smoking cessation and postpartum return to smoking (McBride, Pirie, & Curry, 1992), smoking intervention trials with pregnant women had not measured cessation’s effect on weight gain.

Women’s concerns about weight gain and the maintenance of their smoking behavior sadly reflect their willingness to risk long-term detrimental—and potentially catastrophic—consequences in exchange for dealing with body image and weight-control issues.

If it is medically appropriate, women should also incorporate an exercise program into their quitting plan to increase their metabolic rate and make up for the lowered metabolism that results from the drop in nicotine levels.

  • Chinese and yoga philosophies and ways of actions are right since 2 to 3 thousands years ago!!!”they have had plenty of time to confirm their understanding of life principles.so don’t be fooled by western philosophie it is only 2 to 3 hundred years of controversial experiences with often hidden truths!!!! study the history of this new civilisation. it has brought us many worldly big problems.which are threatening our own life now!!! they have really spoiled everything…..but do you know that there are yet solutions that exist and they will or may come from each one of us if we change our thinking!!! what does that mean????what you see is coming from the functioning of your own mind and all the conditioning that you have received from your family and teachers and all other people called collective thinking and beliefs.to unravel all this mess you have to know yourself!!! know yourself and you will know the universe and the gods is often said by the greatest spiritual masters of the past and actually. but we seem to be far away of what is being done actually!!! so otherwise this situation will continue and something else will happen to force the change in the world!!! nature is more intelligent the man!!! it will know to ‘re establish the balance!!! but man will have to learn msny lessons.with no joy but…know that you are eternal by your soul not by your body which is ephemeral…you will come back on earth!!! if life is still possible….as you think so shall you be!!! this is a great law of life!!! this is a dream life!!! the arborigens people of australia have always said…..

  • Honestly trough all these documentaries, pretty much all I know is, DONT EVER LET ANYONE ELSE DECIDE WHAT YOU EAT. That gets you to over eat super easily, you eat because its time to eat not because you are hungary. Its such a huge trap.

  • Several of the studies he is referring to are not representative. The cigarette and chicken one is for instance far from. This just makes it all more complicated for us..

  • So is the guy at the beginning of the video at the right corner of the screen, bottom right corner of the screen product placement? Lol

  • This is excellent!! As a Nurse and Teacher, I am sending it out to my students and colleagues. You will be an extraordinary physician. Well done!


  • I did feel like my immune system is better after having these supplement. My mother was sick for about a week and I was afraid I’d get caught with her virus so I took this Immune Booster. And guess what I’m healthy as ever.

  • Really informative video. I also had this immune boosting herbal product from Planet Ayurveda like Immune booster capsules and Giloy capsules that contain herbs which boosts immunity naturally. It really works wonders

  • I’ve been a big fan of Chaga myself for a while. I love that it’s getting the recognition it deserves. Sadly that leads some businesses to take advantage of consumers with snake oil-like tactics. For example, most businesses won’t tell you that the Chaga pills aren’t actually that effective because your body can’t properly metabolize the fungus(companies just want a higher $ per pound). By brewing it into tea, you actually steep the nutrients into the water which your body can metabolize much better. The quality of the Chaga is really important as well. Most companies either artificially grow it or import the Chaga from Russia. I highly recommend the Chaga from Birch Boys, I’ve been a customer for years. They wild harvest all of their mushrooms in the Adirondacks and integrate sustainable harvesting methods, allowing in most cases, for the mushroom or fungi to regrow. Due to my long time spent as a customer, they gave me a friends and family code you can use if you like. Go to http://www.birchboys.com/Tom and use the code “clif” at check out for 10% off. Sorry for the wall of text lol, I just get passionate about this message. The only way for everyone to thrive is for everyone to be aware and informed. Keep yourself safe and healthy ������

  • My family don’t want me to tell my sister the truth in case she gets upset, so they’d rather she was dead from her preventable cancer than actually save her life because protecting feelings are more important than logic

  • I love this guy. I think Dr. Greger should run for US presidency, seriously, wouldn´t that be a story? First plantbased President?

  • These people should have to lose some weight and get counseling before they get surgery. If they don’t, they will reverse their own surgery. The staples will pop, and if they don’t die, they’ll just gain the weight back. I don’t get this. Are they learning how to eat healthy?? Not from what I’m seeing.

    Also, Deborah, it’s you weren’t a “lucky go” person. You had a “happy go lucky” personality. I think that’s what you’re trying to say.

  • I wish them all good success. Many are in counseling for burying their past with food or depression that also contributes. But if you work through your past then with a team approach from the doctors you will succeed. The surgery is only a tool but not a miracle cure. You have to work hard to succeed; some slower than others but it can happen if you really want to change. I will never be able to wear a bikini again but my health has improved a lot. ��
