Even if they want to quit smoking, some people are afraid to do so because of the rumours that quitting makes you gain weight. Nicotine works as an appetite suppressant and can speed up your metabolism so sometimes when people stop smoking, they start eating more and gain weight. But will switching to vaping make you gain weight, too?
Vape Liquid Ingredients
Vape liquid is made up of nicotine, water, flavouring, and a propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine base. Not only does vape liquid taste better than cigarettes, but they don’t have many of the harmful chemicals in cigarettes like tar and carbon monoxide. Each ml of liquid has around 5 calories, so even if you feel like you’re vaping a lot of sugary calories, you really aren’t.
Vape liquid has less nicotine in it and even comes in nicotine-free flavoured bottles so you might be worried that vaping makes it more likely that you will gain weight. However, you will still be getting nicotine into your system so any weight gain should be minimal.
Try drinking plenty of water and eating fibre rich foods to keep yourself feeling more full. If you find yourself reaching for a snack instead of a cigarette during a craving, try vaping instead. Or, better yet, go for a quick walk or do some sit-ups.
Vaping E-liquid Flavours
If you’re ready to quit smoking but worried you’ll go for a fatty snack instead of a cigarette, try some delicious vape juice flavours instead. A couple of amazing dessert-like flavours to get you started are:
Edge E-liquid Strawberry Milkshake: Smooth vanilla and sweet strawberry combine to make a luscious bottle of e-liquid. Have dessert all day long with this delectable e-liquid.
- Geek Bars Lemon Tart: Geek Bars are disposable vape devices pre-filled with 575 puffs worth of tasty e-liquid. Geek Bars Lemon Tart is an easy to use vape with the taste of sweet pie crust and tart lemon.
