So far 8 days which is great. Lots of quitters seem to want to eat but I have the opposite effect I don’t feel like eating. Don’t get me wrong am eating my 3 meals because I have to. Yes have just got back into yoga and the gym. I have always been thin but would love to gain about 6 kilos. How many times have I heard “ just eat more”. Trying but I guess it will take time. It just goes to show we are all different. Hope all are staying strong and positive. Love this site has saved me so many times.

    Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking and do more for your health.
    Gaining weight does not mean filling up on junk food anymore than a diet means that you can't eat. It is about making better choices.
    When losing weight, there is a can't outrun a bad diet meaning you cannot exercise enough to eat those 2000 surplus calories.
    Choose healthy foods with lots of calories. Potatoes with butter, corn and beans as or with a main course would be about 650 calories instead of 450. Use lots of olive oil as a healthy fat, avocado is great too. Make a healthy sandwich with rye bread.....egg salad, tuna, cheese and a handful of nuts or seeds which are very good for you , but packed with calories. It is not a lot of food is very nutritious and will help to pack the weight on . If people wanting to lose weight all this they would likely lose weight because they are not feeling hungry and reaching for junk. Granola cereal (homemade) and a greek yogurt for breakfast/late night snack/dessert if you want to avoid sugar are great convenient add ons. ( Raisin bran, cheerios , shreddies are good choices for those wanting to lose weight. , Just research and eat high calorie nutritious foods that appeal to you, just a reverse of losing weight.
    So good luck on gaining pounds and freedom!
