Stop Smoking Without Putting on Weight
According to Deborah Lycett, consultant dietitian and researcher at the University of Birmingham, people gain on average 5kg (11lbs) in the year after they stop smoking.
But she urges prospective quitters not to let the prospect of weight gaining deter them in their goal. She points out that the benefits of stopping smoking more than make up for the negatives of putting on weight. Although you may have gained a few pounds, you've stopped smoking and taken a big step toward a healthier life.
“It’s natural to be worried about putting on weight, but the health risks from this weight gaining are far less than if you were to continue smoking,” says Deborah. “The priority is to give up smoking rather than worrying about putting on weight. You can tackle the weight gain later.” There is very little evidence that weight gaining leads to a relapse in people who have given up smoking, she adds.
Deborah Lycett recommends these steps to avoid weight gain after quitting:
Doing more exercise. Regular exercise may prevent about half the weight gain expected after a year of quitting smoking. It burns off calories and reduces cravings for cigarettes. Build up to at least 150 minutes (two-and-a-half hours) of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, such as fast walking, swimming or cycling, every week. Moderate-intensity activity means working hard enough to make you breathe more heavily than normal and feel slightly warmer than usual. The more exercise you do, the more calories you'll burn.
Useing stop-smoking medicines.Stop-smoking medicines such as nicotine-replacement therapy and the prescription tablets Zyban (bupropion) and Champix (varenicline) can double your chances of quitting successfully and also seem to help reduce weight gain in the first few months.
Postponing your diet. Studies suggest it’s better to tackle stopping smoking first before trying to lose any weight gained while quitting. If you’re really worried about putting on weight, ask your GP to refer you to a dietitian for a dietary plan tailored to your individual needs. This plan will guide you on how much to eat, based on your current weight, age, gender and activity level, and stop you gaining more weight.

You will see from our list of your charges are calculated by cubic meter or cubic kilogram and that we offer substantial rebates for regular shipment.
The most suitable container for you consignment would be half-weight container which is 20’x8’x4’ or, in meters, 6.1x2.4x1.3. This can carry a payload of 18,300 kg. It has a solid removable top, and will protect the metal against all elements.

This would cover the goods from point of acceptance to point of delivery. If you want to come ahead on this basis, please complete the attached export cargo shipping instructions and the export cargo packing instructions and return them to us as soon as possible. Although we accept door-to-door responsibility, we would advise you to take out an all-risk insurance policy, and send a copy of this and three copies of the commercial invoice to us.

I look forward to receiving your instructions.
