√ Smoking reduces appetite, so by quitting, your appetite and metabolism return to normal so you can eat more and burn fewer calories.

√ Insufficient sleep or prolonged sleep can lead to hormonal changes that increase appetite and cravings for foods high in calories and carbohydrates, which can contribute to weight gain.

√ Emotional eating and mood changes can also lead to changes in food choices, i.e. consuming more calorific foods to reduce signs of stress and anxiety and then result in excess weight and body fat.
