From my experience, MOST ppl ard me who quit smoking does gain weight...
There was only one who dramatically lost weight becoz he was admitted to the hospital after attempting to instantly quit smoking for 60+ years...

in fact, there is this slimming program that can get back in good shape and healthy as well...
There has been an incredible amount of science coming out of late in support of a plant-based diet, and how it helps you to lose weight and turn your health around. It is becoming all the more evident that a nutrient-dense, high-fiber diet can not only tame obesity, but it can prevent and reverse the killer diseases of our time: heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and even some kinds of cancer.
So, how do you shift gears and start eating better, when meat, dairy and eggs is so ingrained in your daily regimen? One of the best programs I've seen to assist the process is Dr. Neal Barnard's 21-Day Vegan Kickstart Program. It's doctor supervised, medically sound and chock full of tips, recipes and support.

It has been nine years since this figure competitor and personal trainer gave up eating red meat. "I have experimented with all types of vegetarian diets" she mentions "and have learned through this experimentation that nutrition plays an integral role in one's well-being."
Once a sufferer of migraine headaches, her bouts have been a lot less frequent since the dietary change. It was an ex boyfriend (an Iron man tri-athlete and strict vegan) who introduced Kristin to the book 'Diet For A New America' by John Robbins which prompted the transition. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kristi14.htm
