when i was competing for a body building show a few years back when i just started smoking hookah. when ever i would smoke hookah my veins would start popping out wich meant my insulin levels were rising because of the sugar in the hookah it didn't effect me at all and i was able to get to 3% body fat. but for what ists worth it enough sugar in my blood to make my veins pop out ( i was also carbohydrates depleted so my body was extremley sensitive) so i think it has some calories but not that much.

5 high protein (not necesarily low carb) meals a day and 2-2:30 hours of weight training but am still in the beggining. My fat percentage is kinda low for the stage am in, i should be at around 8% right now but eating more carbohydrates would result in less protein intake cz i cant increase my meals

Contains no calories.

If anything, it has negative calories because of the Nicotine. Nicotine raises your blood pressure and heart rate by thinning your blood having you work harder to do the same work. Most people actually lose weight while smoking (especially cigarettes because of their high nicotine content).

ummm, no, it would be for the nicotine probably raising your BP some, you dont not get enough sugar into you system to increase insulin, you are smoking not eating it

It could also stem from smoking itself and oxygen deprivation, your veins expanding to allow for more oxygen flow.

Though... now that I think about it, nicotine constricts capillaries hardcore, which would also cause even more stress on veins.

Sorry for the double post, thinking out loud here.

Some people have actually said something like this. Hookah causes you to be puffy. Whatever that means. I wanted to knock her with the handle of my razan when I heard that nonsense.

[FONT=Century Gothic]I worked with a woman for 5 years that smoked half pack of menthols everyday. she was as skinny as David Bowie and thanked the cigs.

--She also thanked them for all the fiberglass in her lungs too.

At least with all the flavors of hookah you might be able to satisfy your tast cravings without as much worry about the effect to your body

lord i hate the fiberglass myths.

i agree though that smoking makes you thin, because when you dont smoke a lot of people will munch instead, at least i sure do, havent smoked hookah for almost 2 weeks and ive been eating a lot more

thank god i will smoke at a friends tonight

No, your veins expanding has nothing to with the sugar content because the sugar is vaporized by the heat of the coals or (less so) caramelized and in either case you don't physically consume the sugar in moassel.

In any case, nothing you smoke has calories in a dietary sense.

Hopefully you had a good nutritionist to get you through, and a good trainer for symmetry.
Insulin production and vasodilation have nothing to do with this. This is how nicotine affects the parasympathetic nervous system as churz and hajo pointed out...
