The relationships of body weight and body mass index with smoking cessation were examined among 1633 adults in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Mean body mass index was highest in ex-smokers and lower in smokers, and that of nonsmokers was intermediate.
Body mass index decreased significantly with increasing years after smoking cessation in female ex-smokers after adjusting for age, education, location or work, and physical activity.
This trend, however, was not significant in men.
The body weight data showed similar results.
The prevalence of obesity (body mass index greater than kg/m2) in all subjects showed a decreased with increasing year after smoking cessation.
