Our expert says:
Congratulations on stopping smoking. There are some sugar-free products that you can consider such as the sugar-free gum. Research has indicated that chewing something that is sweet but does not contain any energy (sugar-free gum) tricks the body into believing that it is receiving energy. So while the sugar-free clorets are out of stock, stick to the sugar-free gum - there are many pleasant flavours available which should prevent monotony. Low-energy snacks include celery sticks, carrots, baby tomatoes, and plain, unbuttered popcorn. You could also try doing exercise to counteract this weight gain and firm up. Start going for brisk walks every day for 30 min or join a good gym or Walk for Life.
Hang in there
