    Fattie Boomba

    I'm sure most of you have read the studies where they subjected a load of mice to propylene glycol vapour in the air for their lifetimes, then tested them and found no adverse affects at all (great news)....except they were all fatter than the control group.

    That made me think of all the moon faced dudes on all the vaping youtube videos I've watched lately! I had wondered what it was about vaping that appealed to big, stocky, often bald, guys?

    I had been thinking that if I swapped the fags for a vaporiser I'd still be getting my nicotine so I'd avoid the notorious weight gain side effect of quitting. Last time I gave up smoking I put on 4 kilos in the first month. But I've read a few people on this forum saying they've put on weight since they started vaping.

    So this is a kind of poll really. How many of you have put on weight since taking it up?

    My weight fluctuates a little from day to day but I have not noticed any significant weight gain since I stopped smoking and started vaping, food does taste a lot nicer now, and I do enjoy it more, but I don't eat more

    That's what I've heard, food tastes better so maybe some people eat more because they enjoy it more. But my experience is that when your taste is dulled you are more likely to eat saltier, sweeter or stronger tasting food, which is usually more calorie dense. So I'm sceptical of that theory. I know when I gave up the fags I basically replaced them with food, chocolate in particular because it soothed my grief over losing my 'friend'.

    Which is why I suspect it may be something about the PG/VG that affects insulin efficiency. I vaguely remember reading it somewhere actually. And they are used to sweeten food.

    I think my weight revolves more around my beer intake

    I've never been big. I went from normal sized (34) to skinny (30) and back up to normal sized. Nothing to do with vaping and all to do with lifestyle/stress/illness.

    Have been vaping for a few years, 2010 I think I started. When I put on weight it's because I've been eating more and doing less.

    hmm, i gained a few kg a few years ago, but i think it predated vaping by a little. Held a very stable weight since I started (within a kg up or down).

    I can't give an exact date of the 3kg increase though .. it may have been post vaping, which is interesting.
    coukd also have just tied in with my 50th birthday as well.

    Firstly were the mice inhaling or consuming the PG?

    Secondly, I was a bigger girl when smoking and still am, and haven't lost any weight since taking up vaping, but haven't put any more on, but my weight problems are related to a string of medical/health issues. My appetite hasn't increased either since taking it up.

    I sure haven't lost any weight, but I can't say that vaping has put any on, either. I've been carrying my spare tyres around for a year or so now, so I'm just glad I can't blame vaping

    I think ciggies keep the weight off because they suppress hunger and raise your heart rate, i dont think vaping does the same thing so a little weight gain would be normal. I can't really remember but i think i put on about 3kgs in the first 3 months of vaping.

    I put on a couple of kg's initially in part because food tasted so different - in a very good way. I also cut back on caffeine considerably as it was making me jittery after starting on ecigs (I used to drink a gallon of coffee a day), which may have contributed to the gain.
