Title: Can You Vape While Under the Keto Diet?

Can You Vape While Under the Keto Diet?
A few decades ago, it used to be said that some
people smoked to stay fit. Today, even when
regular cigarettes are increasingly becoming
passé, it is still possible to find some people
who are still doing it for fear of adding some
pounds. Some would be heard saying better dead
than fat as they continue puffing away, even as
people keep on dying from smoking-related
diseases such as lung cancer, heart failure,
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD),
etc. Thanks to vapes and other nicotine
supplements, smoking is gradually becoming
unfashionable the number of smokers is dwindling
day by day while vaping is taking the world by
storm. But some people are worried if it might
affect their diet. For instance, are there
calories in vape juice? Does vape juice contain
sugar? Does vaping suppress appetite? And
perhaps the big question is, does vaping make you
pile some more pounds? These among others are
the queries most vapers and those considering to
transition from traditional cigarettes to vapes
want answers to. For ex-smokers whove crossed
over to vaping, its not that they want to return
to smoking, but they are afraid of suffering
from an expanding waistline if they quit. Some
vapers feel they dont feed as much when vaping.
As much as that may be their perception, the
appetite-thwarting effects of nicotine may be the
main reason. Either way, there is certainly a
better option and an alternative that does not
harm their health. Now that youve been vaping
and as things appear, you are gaining some
weight. For the lack of a better word, you are
becoming fat. You must be a worried person,
arent you? For the last year, youve been
striving to cut this weight but your efforts are
futile. For that
same period, youve been vaping regularly and are
bewildered whether those e-cigarettes turned
hobbies are thwarting your weight loss
journey. Should you stop vaping or what kind of
experiment do you need? You need to learn some
facts about vaping and diet. For sure, some
e-liquids contain sinfully candied flavors
that imitate those snacks and pudding we dont
dare feed regularly. We tend to treat ourselves
to gratifying flavors such as cupcakes, gummy
candies, cookies, or doughnuts in form of vape
juice. Truly, vaping a doughnut flavor does not
affect your body, in the same way, eating the
doughnut does. Still, some vapers are worried if
vape juice actually contains calories, and if it
has, what can those calories do to their weight
loss business. In this post, were going to
discuss how vaping affects your weight loss
objectives whether youre vaping n icotine s
alts, freebase vape juice, or if youre vaping
under a keto diet. Should you count calories
while youre vaping? Simply, no. As it is, vape
juice does contain calories, but their
volume/amount in the mixture is negligible. A
milliliter of vape juice contains approximately 4
5 calories. This translates to 120 to 150
calories in a bottle of 30 ml. Now, what matters
is how frequently you vape the number of
calories you take per day will be determined by
how often you vape. For example, if you consume
1-ml five times a day, thats 20 to 25 calories
a day. If you go up to 10 ml a day, youre
looking at 40 to 50 calories. Lets put things
into perspective. A celery stalk has 6 calories,
thus containing what a milliliter of vape juice
has. Meanwhile, an average cupcake contains 120
or more calories. From the two, its obvious
calories in vape juice certainly arent
abundantly sufficient to sabotage your weight
loss journey. Additionally, keeping in mind that
an average person burns around 50 calories an
hour while sleeping, its really senseless to
count calories in your e-juice. What happens to
the calories, where do they go? Another worrisome
issue that you may have regarding calories in
vape juice is where they end up, are they
digested? Scientists havent yet established
where these calories really go after they have
been absorbed in the lungs. Maybe they are
subjected to a similar process as those ones
that we get from food. Vaping and Health Since
vaping involves inhaling vaporized vape juice,
some people, especially newbies may wonder
whats contained in this substance and question
themselves if it contains calories that may pile
some extra pounds on their bodies. But they
should recall that
everything has calories unless its not something
(matter) because calories are basically forms of
energy that give matter its mass. Even those
celery stacks youre munching in a bid to evade
sugary snacks and lose some weight contain
calories, only that they are way less than that
contained in a cupcake or doughnut. So, if
youve been asking yourself whether e-juices do
have calories, now everything is clear. Typical
vape juice is a blend of ingredients including
nicotine, flavoring, vegetable glycerin (VG), and
propylene glycol (PG). Now, these elements are
made available in a mix of different
concentrations and ratios. For instance,
nicotine is made available in low, medium, and
high concentrations. Similarly, the two bases,
vegetable glycerin, and propylene glycol are
provided in ratios of VG/PG 70/30, VG/PG 40/60,
VG/PG 50/50, VG/PG 40/60, VG/PG 30/70, and so
on. As to the number of calories contained in
e-juices, the right answer is not many. Often,
one milliliter of e-liquid contains around 5
calories, which is way less compared with
chicken sandwiches or hamburgers that contain
nearly 300 calories. So, it doesnt matter how
frequent or how much you vape since the number of
calories in these vape juices is
negligible. Besides, vaping is different from
feeding vape juice doesnt have added sugars.
There is nothing to stress you as vape juice has
no carbs. If this information sounds unconvincing
to you, you can as well exhale all vapor that
comes out of the vape without inhaling anything
to the lungs. Can vaping make you gain
weight? What are your thoughts about it? Do you
suspect your weight gain is caused by vaping? I
dont think so. By now, you should be convinced
that vaping has no business with your gain. Some
vapers dont crave or feel tempted to feed on
those sugary snacks as they can get their
supplement from vape juices. More importantly,
nicotine is not only a stimulant but an appetite
suppressant implying it can make you lose some
weight (by starving yourself) if used regularly.
You must have noted that the majority of heavy
vapers are skinny, they tend to starve
themselves. You must have also noted when people
quit smoking, they usually add some pounds. Its
hardly a secret, lots of people are really
struggling with their extra pounds, and some are
still overfeeding and becoming out of shape. They
dream of a perfect body thatll turn heads but
lack the idea of how to reject those yummy
burgers and pizzas and get into the shape they
want. One of the ways is to distract your mouth
so youre not regularly putting unnecessary
food into it. Vaping is a solution to it, keeping
both your hands and mouth engaged, so you arent
fixated on the next high-calorie junk meal. A
survey conducted in England involving people who
consume vape juice for weight loss found that
there is a degree of concern amongst the smoking
fraternity about despairing and gaining weight.
To them, vaping really works as intended. Vaping
helps ex-smokers
to check on their weight through continued
exposure to nicotine and its appetite-
suppression effects as well as habitual aspects
of vaping. The survey, published in the
Addictive Behaviors journal summarized that one
out of sixteen smokers in England believe that
if they begin vaping after theyve given up
smoking, they would not pile extra pounds on
their bodies. The report says one out of
twenty-two persons is solely consuming vape
juices for weight control. More interesting, the
researcher says that should evidence crop up that
vapes prevent weight gain, then one out of eight
smokers would be willing to switch to electronic
cigarettes. Does e-juice contain sugars? Vape
juice contains Vegetable Glycerin (VG), a thicker
sugar alcohol that introduces the sweet taste in
the liquid. Also, the mixture contains Propylene
Glycol (PG), a thinner sugar alcohol that works
similarly to VG. Both VG and PG function in a
very similar way as xylitol, a sugar alcohol
that is low in Glycaemic Index (GI). A low
Glycaemic Index (GI) implies that these sugars
lack the potential to spike blood sugar levels.
Particularly, there are no carbs in vegetable
glycerin, so it doesnt interfere with your
insulin levels. Although propylene glycol
contains carbs, their volume is so negligible
that they are insignificant in the daily net carb
Vaping under Keto The holy grail of all keto
dieters is introducing ketosis into their
metabolism. In biology, Ketosis is the process
that occurs when the body lacks enough carbs to
burn to generate energy. Instead, it processes
(burns) the stored fats and converts them into
ketones, which are then used as an energy source.
Some vapers may be worried whether their
addiction to vaping might result in spikes in
blood sugar levels that may ultimately eliminate
them out of ketosis, interfere with the weight
loss goals, and completely destroy their keto
health. Understandably, this has become a major
concern for the vaping community. Its senseless
to improve your health by feeding a balanced
diet, hitting well your routine macros, only to
ruin these efforts through vaping. So to put your
mind at peace, it has been established that
vaping doesnt destroy your keto
health. Ketogenic diets are becoming popular
ways of weight control. Additionally, theyre
becoming some of the best lifestyle assistants to
getting admirable shape. To some vapers,
vaping under the keto diet is very normal and
healthy. While its not recommended to fast with
keto, but rather stick to particular food groups
fats/oils and proteins but mostly avoiding
carbohydrates some people would wonder whether
consuming vapes while at the same time fasting is
wise if they are required to abscond meals for a
certain period. Luckily, vape juices dont
contain carbs, so people who are under a
ketogenic diet can continue vaping.
For the people fasting for religious grounds,
they may not be allowed to follow their normal
feeding routine. They may even not be allowed to
drink water a good example is the Muslims when
theyre observing the sacred month of Ramadan.
Since vape juices have a negligible number of
calories, you can still vape while youre on a
fasting schedule. Can vaping eliminate you from
ketosis? Not really. This is great news for all
vapers, vaping wont knock them out of ketosis.
Instead, it offers vapers the sugar kick they
require, without consuming sugar and helps them
maintain a healthy keto lifestyle. The
ingredients of vape juice wont knock vapers out
of ketosis. Surprisingly, some vapers have
reported benefiting from the keto diet as it
assists them to curb their sugar
cravings. Summary Whether you are dieting,
slimming down, or just trying to get your fingers
and mouth out of that burger, vaping may be a
great assistant to achieving your goals. If
youre using regular cigarettes, vaping may as
well help you avoid them. It could as well help
you take up a few exercises and stay fit,
because immediately as you give up smoking,
youll boost your energy thanks to getting
fresher air because carbon monoxide from
burning cigarettes prevents body organs and
tissues from getting enough oxygen youll be
able to do much more. Blend with
appetite-thwarting effects of nicotine, after
youve given up smoking, youll most likely stop
overeating. If you crave a snack or any other
unhealthy food, just take a couple of draws from
your vape mod and it should be adequate to quell
that hunger pangs and refresh your energy.
vaping could be that change youve been looking
for to turn your life, cut some unwanted pounds
and simultaneously get yourself fit and healthy.
