The answer to the question of whether vaping can make one fat is complex. To be able to answer this on your own and armed with the right knowledge, it’s only right to bust some of the myths associated with weight loss and vaping.
Just because you have various flavors of e-juice to choose from when you vape does not mean you are ingesting more calories than what your body can burn. The ingredients of an e-liquid all have negligible calorie values, about 4lcal per ml. For you to have an idea, a digestive biscuit can have 71kcals. There is no evidence yet that links vaping to weight gain.
When you vape, even when you use nicotine e-liquid, and you have been a smoker, you are likely to gain weight slightly. This is due to the reduced nicotine intake compared to tobacco cigarette smoking. Nicotine can affect your weight in two ways. It can suppress your appetite and increases your metabolic rate. That is why when people reduce their intake of nicotine, they may have increased appetite and a reduced metabolism which can lead to a slight weight gain. It’s nicotine, not vaping. Given the detriments that nicotine can cause on your body, weight gain from an abrupt reduction of it through a sudden cessation of smoking may be an advantage to you.
When it comes to the sweet flavors of e-juices, it’s important to mention that you don’t get to ingest the e-juice. You inhale the vapor produced by it. There is no digestion involved in the process of vaping, and the calories found in the e-juice are low.
According to a study conducted by the Society for Research on Nicotine & Tobacco, vaping has several positive effects that help smokers beyond gaining a healthy weight. These include improved sensation and behavioral perception and taste perception as well as mouthfeel. Instead of causing weight gain, vaping can help to mitigate it.
According to a study published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research, e-cigarettes help smokers who are trying to quit to avoid weight gain. This means that vaping can contribute to the fight against obesity. Weight gain has always been a concern for smokers who are planning to quit. On average, a smoker who quits gains 5kg in the first year without nicotine. Nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) may be able to control weight gain among smokers who are working to quit, but researchers have been recommending the use of nicotine-containing e-cigarettes instead.
This is because with e-cigarettes you can taper down your nicotine intake which can help you lose or manage your weight well. This is according to the co-author of the study, Linda Bauld, who is a professor of health policy at the University of Stirling and deputy director of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies. The wide array of e-liquid flavors available for vapers could help in curbing unnecessary snacking, especially because of the sweet and fruit flavors to choose from. The study conducted by scientists from New Zealand and Stirling also suggests that the physical processes you have to undergo in filling an e-cigarette could reduce your inclination to eat.
The risk of weight gain among smokers who want to quit deter them from doing so. E-cigarettes offer a safer alternative to tobacco smoking, and it helps them quit the habit for good. It’s an added benefit that it can help them stave off fats.
There is no way for vaping to contribute to your weight gain. The culprit is nicotine, which is the main component of a tobacco cigarette. Remember that weight gain is a result of taking in more calories than the amount your body can burn. With vaping, you don’t take in a lot of calories. Everything that vapers enjoy from vaping is because of vapor inhalation.
Simply put, both cigarette smoking and vaping can cause high blood pressure, which is the leading cause of cardiac arrest. For adults who have to monitor their blood pressure level, it is recommended by physicians to quit smoking. The truth is that even young people can suffer from high blood pressure and some of them may not even know it until later in life.
Heart disease and stroke are two of the most popular causes of premature death among those who smoke. Smokers are twice at risk of incurring heart disease and stroke compared to non-smokers. Young smokers, on the other hand, are five times more at risk of incurring a heart attack than young people who don’t smoke. Cigarette smoke may stiffen the arteries and cause systemic inflammation. These can all lead to hypertension. Hypertension can increase the risk of incurring dangerous cardiovascular conditions.
Doctors advise smokers to quit smoking to mitigate the impact of this habit on one’s blood pressure and cardiovascular health. One of the major apprehensions of smokers when it comes to quitting the habit is the possibility of gaining weight. Weight gain is also a factor for incurring hypertension and heart disease. Weight gain is directly linked to smokers’ nicotine intake. Nicotine suppresses appetite and increases one’s metabolic rate. With the sudden reduction of nicotine due to smoking cessation, the possibility of weight gain is also increased. Vaping which allows a gradual reduction of nicotine intake mitigates the impact of sudden weight gain on cardiovascular health.
Some researchers also consider the physical acts of preparing the vape as a factor that reduces the possibility of weight gain among smokers who switch to vaping as a smoking cessation aid. For both adult and young smokers, vaping can help prevent incurring high blood pressure when it is used to quit smoking. However, it can cause high blood pressure and other cardiovascular conditions when a non-smoker and nonvaper suddenly vapes.
