Our expert says:
Firstly congratulations for stopping smoking - this is a great thing you have done and your health will benefit in all respects. What ever you do, do NOT start again because you may have gained a bit of weight. If you reduce your energy intake and do plenty of exercise, then this initial gain will stop and after a short while you will get back to your normal weight. I wrote an article on this important subject recently, so click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and do a Search for 'Stopping smoking' to read all the tips for overcoming this temporary problem.
Hang in there
