Friday, 03 June 2011 22:3

A major change in your lifestyle cannot happen without changing your life holistically.

We have told some cool ways of sneaking the butt out of your reach and explored the relationship between smoking and weight gain, and this seems a good starting point to pay more attention to foods’ role in reducing, and then quitting smoking.

Reduce Cravings for Cigarettes

Avoid sugary foods, red meat, coffee and alcohol.

Sugar, because it precipitates an eventual crash from the sugar high,
andy you’ll crave another high. Red meat makes cigarettes taste good –
just ask smokers. Coffee’s buzz (and subsequent drop – leading to a
craving for another source of caffeine) and alcohol’s neurobiological
effect on your brain makes you crave a cigarette. And when you’re
drinking, you might not be able to remain firm in your resolution to not
smoke.

1-Apples

Maybe 2-3 apples a day. Apples contain
pectin, which reduces your blood toxin content. In adverse cases, it is
known to use an apple-only diet to completely purge the bloodstream diet
of the toxins from cigarettes.

Apples are also crunchy and sweet, and appeal to smokers who need something to do with their mouth.

2-Cinammon

There are many ways you can use cinnamon as a quit-smoking aid.

Simply inhaling deeply on a cinnamon stick mimics the deep drag on a flavorful cigarette.

Secondy, cinnamon boosts brain activity, reduces nervous tension and memory loss – all the temporary side-effects of quitting smoking.

Cinnamon is also good for, well, everything. Your blood, your stomach – cinnamon is a tonic for most things.

3-Ginger and 4-Garlic

Ginger is hot stuff – literally. It makes you sweat out your toxins.
Garlic stabilizes your fluctuating blood pressure when you quit.

6-Milk and Other Dairy Products

Can you imagine smoking after a glass of milk? It sounds uncool. And, it’ll make your cigarette taste bitter.

Plan your daily dose of Horlicks around your regular sutta break.

6-Vegetables

Carrots, celery, broccoli, cucumbers are all foods that that can delay
your urge to smoke with their sheer crunchiness. They can make
cigarettes taste awful and are also known to reduce cravings for
nicotine

7-Salt

A weird tip that works – lick a wee bit of salt with the tip of your tongue. It’ll extinguish your urge to smoke
