Abstract

Objectives. Data from two surveys of the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council Twin Registry, conducted 16 years apart, were used to determine characteristics of individuals that were predictive of excessive weight gain after smoking cessation. Methods. Over thefollow-up, 2179 men quit smoking and averaged a weight gain of 3.5 kg. Quitters were grouped into four categories of weight change: lost weight, no change, gained weight, and excessive weight gain (''super-gainers''). Results. In comparison with quitters reporting no change in weight, super-gainers were younger, were of lower socioeconomic status,and differed on a number of health habits before quitting (all Ps < .05). At follow-up, super-gainers reported changes in health habits that were significantly different from those seen in quitters reporting stable weight (all Ps < .05). Pairwise concordance for weight change in146 monozygotic and 111 dizygotic twin pairs in which both twins quitsmoking was significantly greater in monozygotic than dizygotic pairs(P < .01). Conclusions. These results indicate that super-gainers differ in important ways from those who do not gain weight after smoking cessation and that these weight changes may be influenced by underlying genetic factors.
