You can also vape nicotine e-juices. It is said that nicotine is an appetite suppressant so vaping liquids that contain nicotine will help you not want to eat everything that is in front of you.
“A study carried out in England last year looked at people who vape for weight control. It found that there exists a level of concern among the smoking population about giving up and gaining weight, but that vaping might help. “E-cigarettes may help quitters to control their weight through continued exposure to the appetite-suppressant effects of nicotine and behavioral aspects of vaping,” the research says.”
The study, published in the journal, Addictive Behaviors, concluded that one in 16 people in England who smoke believe that if they quit and vaped instead, they would not put on weight. One in 22 people is solely vaping for weight loss. The researchers said that “should evidence emerge that e-cigarettes prevent weight gain, one in eight people who smoke would be tempted to quit smoking and use e-cigarettes.”
