Re: [IP] Re: Weight Gain--Whining in Colorado

Nicotine is a stimulant and one will gain varying amounts of weight after
quitting nicotine.
That and the probability of 'snacking' a bit more frequently is what
contributes to the weight gain of quitting smoking.
Drinking plenty of water, and non-calorie drinks, going for many walks and
hanging out in smoke free areas will help.
I'm wondering how many who have quit nicotine have noticed improved glycemic
control?  Smoking raised the BG levels in a study of non-diabetics at London
(England) back in 1985 or thereabouts and they said the cigs DOUBLED the FBG
od all persons non-diabetic, so I'm wondering if the quitters found they
could actually reduce their insulin intake?
