    Hi guys, I'm curious to know if my weight gain in the last two months is related to vaping. I stopped smoking and started vaping two month ago and have put on 4 kg's. My eating routine and portions did not increase during this time. I have been vaping Prime mango to the max, Fizzapple ice, passionate and the new grape flavor 6 and 3 mg juices. Thanks Julian

    Stopping smoking has been known to make you nibble a bit more to deal with cravings

    I would think it's more to do with quitting the cigs rather than the vaping.

    Hi @juliannaidoo.jn - its a good question

    I think stopping smoking is a big thing. A lot of changes happen in your body and it affects people differently.

    I agree with @clydern , stopping smoking is commonly followed by some weight gain as one typically nibbles on things to respond to the cravings.

    I doubt it has much to do with vaping itself.

    It could also be that smoking increases one's metabolism slightly so when you stop it can take a while for things to normalise again.

    When I switched to vaping 6 years ago I lost about 4 or 5kg. Probably because I also felt a bit healthier, ate healthier and exercised more - allround did quite a good thing for me. ABout a year after I switched I was probably in my best shape Ive been in for years. I have subsequently (over the last year or two) picked up weight - but its more to do with my eating / reduced exercise and not the vaping.

    My advice to anyone stopping smoking and switching to vaping is to see it as part of a broader effort to be healthier. So eating better and exercising more go hand in hand. After a year or two of that one can only be surprised and proud of the results!

    Thanks guys for the replies, I do see it as a healthier change. I will watch the nibbling. Just need to go back to gym and get more exercise.

    Agreed 100%
    Always a toss up between the pleasure from a great plate of chips and the extra kilos that ends up putting on!
    I actually havent had chips for a while now - so your post got me to crave it.... :eek:

    @Silver Eat sweet potato chips instead. They're lower in carbs than ordinary potatoes.
