A lot of people don’t want to give up smoking because they’re afraid they’ll gain weight. If that’s your excuse, you’ll have to find a new one – because researchers at Brigham Young University just blew that theory up in smoke, so to speak. They found that cigarette smoke actually causes metabolic changes that lead to WEIGHT GAIN. Even worse: The effect is stronger with SECONDHAND smoke. So a husband who smokes may gain a few pounds – but his poor wife breathing in all those fumes will gain even more. So if you’re looking to lose weight – ditch the cigarettes.
