Uploaded by HealthiNation on 17.01.2012

If you’re going to be a quitter, then you need to live like a quitter, and that means
getting started on a healthy diet that will help your body recover from the effects of
Diet doesn’t mean cutting out foods –in fact, limiting your food intake while trying
to quit will increase your cigarette cravings.
Instead, develop a nourishing plan that will help you get through those first rough months.
Snacks are your friend – carry light snacks like pretzels, nuts, and fruits with you everywhere
to keep your hands- and mouth- busy.
Incorporate filling grains like whole wheat pasta into your larger meals - fried and fatty
foods will only add to the sluggishness you may be feeling. And when you do need some
pep, say no to craving-triggering caffeine in soda and coffee and opt for juice, tea,
or water instead.
Keep reminding yourself that even if you do put on a few extra pounds during this time,
it’ll be well worth the years you’re adding to your life.
