The program does not cause any weight gain. The cause of weight gain while trying to quit is the smoker seeking to quell the desire to smoke with food, since most smokers experience cravings for nicotine as being similar to hunger for food.
In all cases, our testers have reported a weight gain of 0 to 8 pounds. Most (around 3 in 4 testers and users) reported no weight gain; those who did gain weight often had other valid reasons for that weight gain (medications usually), and in all cases where it was from quitting, the weight came off quite naturally over a few months after finishing the program.
For all intents and purposes, you can expect little to no weight gain, and whatever weight is gained is naturally and easily lost after finishing the program. The program actually helps prevent weight gain by reducing stress as much as possible, and removing the triggers that result in weight gain while trying to quit using other methods.
