Research into Action: New Webinar Looks at Vaping to Lose Weight

The next Research into Action webinar is coming up! On Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 12 pm EST, Dr. Meghan E. Morean will be discussing her article, “Vaping to lose weight: Predictors of adult e-cigarette use for weight loss or control.” Her article will be featured in the March 2017 edition of the Journal of Addictive Behaviors.
Dr. Morean will be sharing her findings, such as the fact that some traditional cigarette smokers are motivated to smoke to lose weight or control their weight. The current study evaluated whether a subset of adult e-cigarette users reported vaping to lose or control their weight and examined potential predictors of vaping for weight management.
The study also found that 13.5 percent of a sample of adult e-cigarette users reported vaping to lose/control weight. These adults were heavier vapers, overweight, and reported restricting calories. These adults also preferred coffee or vanilla-flavored e-cigarettes and reported poor impulse control.
