Can Smoking Affect The OCD Diet?
I am on an OCD diet, I was a smoker before. Does that have an effect?
Smoking affects a variety of body metabolism. There is research that smoking reduces appetite, but in the short term. If you have a smoking habit (long-term), this can lead to the risk of central obesity (accumulation of fat in the stomach) and insulin resistance so that you are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Smoking can also damage blood vessels, making atherosclerosis easier.
Smoking irritates the airways and can reduce the ability to smell / smell and also damage the taste buds on the tongue. If you stop smoking, this ability can return so you can enjoy the food you eat more. By enjoying the food you eat, of course you can increase your satisfaction while eating and appreciate the food you eat. If you are satisfied with the previous food, the desire to eat again or other foods can decrease.
Smoking also reduces the body's ability to absorb necessary vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, vitamin C and vitamin D. Quitting smoking can improve general health and well-being.
The OCD diet is actually not recommended by health experts because the risk is high enough to damage the body and the decline can be too fast. But diets with any method in general still have to be carried out with discipline and the results are not instantaneous.
