An article about that was published in the scientific journal "BMC Public Health".

Researchers from the United States made the conclusion that smoking people will consume about 2.02 kilocalories per gram of food.

The energy density (ED) of food is an indicator of the ratio of caloric content to the weight of the product. Specialists noted that ED is an important marker for determining the quality of the diet and the health risk factors associated with overweight. 

A diet with a low level of ED is called as a successful strategy to prevent their weight gain through to quitting of smoking.

Now, the scientists came to the conclusion that the organism of a smoker on a diet suffers more than a non-smoker. Harmful substances that enter the body of a smoker with caustic smoke, lead to poor health due to a reduction in daily calorie intake.

The researchers also found that a heavy smoker will need more energy for life. Because part of the energy is spent to counteracting toxins that coming in with nicotine, while the other part is required for food processing. 

However, even if a smoking person reduces to smoking during a diet, their health will not improve,  due to a lack of useful substances.

Scientists also found that smokers are more likely to experience a feeling of hunger, which increases with a lack of useful substances. Experts do not advise susceptible to a bad habit to go on a diet and at the same time to stop smoking. 

A bad habit will causes a person to consume about 2.02 calories per gram of food, while a non-smoker only  need about 1.79 calories. Thus, the diet in the first case will not bring any results.

The data was taken into account in the work of American scientists, that participated in the National Health and Nutrition Surveys in 2013-2014.

Earlier, the experts from the Japanese National Center for Global Health and Medicine, within the framework of an eight-year study involving more than 50,000 people, makes a conclution that smoking is associated with an increased risk of hearing loss.
