Overview

Everyone knows the grim statistics on smoking . . . so what’s your excuse for not quitting? If you are like millions of other Americans, the weight gain associated with quitting may be the major factor. If so, this book can help you change your life.
Follow Dr. Katahn's advice and kick the nicotine habit without adding those extra pounds—guaranteed. He presents a safe, simple program based on the latest scientific research in metabolism, biochemistry, and smoking cessation. He shows which method of quitting is best suited to your personal situation, which exercises have lasting calorie burning effects, and how eating the right foods will increase your metabolic rate to compensate for the lack of nicotine.

At least two-thirds of the people who quit smoking gain an average of 10 to 12 pounds. But going on a diet after you quit is one of the worst things you can do! Research shows that dieting can increase your craving for cigarettes. Now, to help you find the best way to quit and keep the weight off, Dr. Katahn--author of the T-Factor Diet--presents a safe, simple program based on the latest scientific research in metabolism, biochemistry, and smoking cessation.
