This new programme presents proven methods of controlling appetite, fool-proof ways to avoid substituting fattening foods for a smoke, and creating a daily lifestyle strategy for fighting nicotine and food cravings. The ALA's HOW TO QUIT SMOKING WITHOUT GAINING WEIGHT is different from quick-fix solutions: it's a whole-life guide that deals with all the issues facing quitters that also may impact their eating patterns: stress, social occasions, work, friends & family, etc. The book also provides the latest scientific information, research and nutritional information that pertain to smoking, quitting, weight and overall health. It offers a life long nutritional programme, not a temporary diet, so readers will learn what foods will give them the most energy and the "high" they might have got from smoking, help them sleep at night and aid them with mood control, depression and anxiety. Find out why vegetables and oats are the two most important foods in your diet while you're quitting. Exercise is also an important part of the equation.
The ALA's HOW TO QUIT SMOKING WITHOUT GAINING WEIGHT gives sensible, safe ways to incorporate exercise into the programme so that it becomes a part of daily life. Find out why walking, swimming, biking and kissing are recommended activities when quitting. Along with seven days of new menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner and 25 basic recipes, tip sheets will provide quick fixes for surviving bad days and surprise situations.
