Can vaping help you lose weight? I've never smoked cigarettes before but recently I started vaping. I vape with 0.3% nicotine. I have hashimotos which is a form of hypothyroidism that causes my thyroid gland to be underactive. This makes me have a slow metabolism and makes it very difficult to low weight. That combined with constant sugar cravings has cause me to gain over 50 pound since being diagnosed with hashimotos 5 years ago. I was wondering if vaping with an extremely low level of nicotine can help me lose weight since it not only raises your metabolism but suppresses your appetite. At night I get sugar cravings and tend to eat ice cream or anything sweet I can find around the house. Could vaping help me lose weight or could it have an adverse effect since I have hypothyroidism? NOTE: Since I've started to vape I've noticed I've gone down about 6 pounds on the scale but I don't know if that is from vaping or something else and if that is just temporary weight loss or if it will continue.
