I heard its bad to eat late at night & causes weight gain & I also heard it's a myth & eating late at night WILL NOT cause weight gain. Which is it?

Both: Mathematically speaking, it makes no difference at what time a person eats, because her weight gain only depends on how many EXTRA calories she eats or drinks, above the number of calories she uses each day or each week. In reality, many people gain weight when they eat before bed... because they already ate all the daily calories they need by 8:00 p.m., and the calories after then are EXTRA ones. ...Read more

What causes weight gain, nausea and fullness in the abdomen?

Is it true that quitting smoking causes weight gain? If so would it be hard to get off? And how much weight would one expect?

Is it true that quitting smoking causes weight gain? If so would it be hard to get off? And how much weight would one expect?

Not Necessarily: You may gain weight -- usu <5 pounds -- bc food actually tastes good. Smoking causes you to lose taste sensation. Also, it creates a "hand-to-mouth" habit which leads some people to replace a cigarette with food. If you are aware of these things, it can keep you from over eating. Also, your lungs will be happier & you can exercise more! The benefits of quitting are far better than a few pounds. ...Read more

Interesting question: Insulin resistance is associated with obesity.

What causes weight gain using Zoloft? If you eat the same & exercise, why do people gain on it? What mechanism is involved? Does metabolism change?

What causes weight gain using Zoloft?  If you eat the same & exercise, why do people gain on it?  What mechanism is involved?  Does metabolism change?

Appetite increase: A number of psychiatric drugs, including most SSRIs (with the exception usually of fluoxetine or Prozac) cause an increase in appetite.

Drinking more water gives you a full sensation in your stomach; also carrots & celery ...Read more
