Very common: Almost everyone gains weight after quitting smoking, usually in the range of 5-10 pounds, but sometimes more, and occasionally much more. If you are truly limiting yourself to 1200 calories and are exercising, i don't know why it is continuing, and you should see your doctor to rule out any metabolic problem, like thyroid disease or many others. Congrats on quitting smoking after 20 years! ...Read more

2000 calorie diet: 20 grams of protein per day is not enough. That is only 10% of your total calories on a 2, 000 calorie diet. I recommend you aim for a 40-30-30 percent of carbs, protein, and good fats. ...Read more

Does eating 15 gram of saturated fat per day is bad for me ?

Does eating 15 gram of saturated fat per day is bad for me

No: If you are eating 15 grams per day of saturated fat, you are doing a great job of limiting this! it's probably good to have a little saturated fat in the diet, and that's what you have at 15 grams.
