We all know nicotine acts as an appetite suppressant and many people worry about putting on weight after they quit smoking.

Well if you follow the advice below then you can combat hunger pangs easily.

Nicotine has an affect on the neurotransmitters in the brain that trigger hunger signals and many smokers when they stop smoking over eat and put on weight.

Recently there has been a lot of research into nicotine in water which is a safe delivery method for nicotine which does not have the added chemicals of many other NRT methods such as patches

An easy way to curb hunger pangs

Nicotine water was designed not as a stop smoking aid but as a convenient way for users to get nicotine when they cant or don't want to smoke.

It's ideal in terms of the way it helps in terms of stopping hunger pangs.

Water is the best delivery method for people wanting to control hunger pangs when they have given up smoking as water is another appetite suppressant.

Water keeps your stomach full and stops dehydration which can lead to hunger pangs, when you get a hunger pang, in many cases it's just a thirst signal and if you drink the hunger goes away.

Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat in the body by helping the kidneys flush out waste and toxins.

Nicotine and water together is therefore an ideal way to keep weight off when you have given up smoking.
