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

How many grams of fat per meal is considered a low fat diet?

Fat is good for you: if it is good fat such as olive oil and coconut oil. Avoid transfats found in packaged foods and pastries. If you don't eat good fat you will feel hungry a lot, w/or w/out a special diet. Please do what your doc says but being a fathead is good. Eat butter rather than marjarine, trusting a cow rather than a chemist. Peace and good health. ...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
