    Default Weight gain since quitting marijuana

    I'm gaining weight dramatically since I quit!

    I've put on a stone in the 9/10 weeks since I quit (i can't honestly remember the exact date I quit lol at my memory)

    But yeah, I'm eating loads and piling on the weight - luckily I've always been skinny so now im just looking healthier with a bit of extra weight - but hopefully i wont keep putting on a stone every 9 or so weeks!

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    after the intial period of about 3-4 wks after quitting where i had no appetite yeah ive put on about a stone compared to my smoking days but its a healthier weight coz i was underweight. apparently from wat ive read its because the drug plays about with your hormones and stops you from keeping muscle mass

    Default I get it!!

    I have quit for about 8 weeks now and I'm not over eating as I was when smoking weed. I used to eat ALL the time and a bunch of junk food at that. I just hope this does not continue to happen. I love having a clear head but I do not like the weight gain. I think it's a metabolism thing but I sure hope it stops.

    Yeah I did, not only did my appetite dramatically increase which I which I know some people experience the opposite, but I also put on a fair bit of weight. I think the not eating right and years of smoking may have interfered with my metabolism.

    Default Weight gain after quitting weed

    It is my belief that we gain weight when we stop because we no longer are raising our heart rates like we where when smoking. A raised HR burns calories.

    Yeah, my understanding is that drugs and cigarettes do speed up the Basal Metabolic Rate or the amount of energy that your body is burning at rest.

    for me it was one of the reasons to quit. i was skinnier than any girl ive been with and it felt really embarrasing.

    i gotta work out heavy tho cuz my body tends to store fat in my ass and legs, and theres nothing quite as ugly as big butt guys
