    Hi,


    I just started the PB. I have the book and ordered the Master formula. I have over 100 lbs to lose. Can you give me some tips on how to minimize loose skin?

    I have no experience in that area, at least yet! I see pictures of people who have lost hundreds of pounds and they look good, bare chested, no problems that I can see.


    I do, have, however, two life tales in the matter.


    I can say that a very pretty woman I met, when we, uh, you know, got down to matters, she was full of stretch marks despite being curvy. She told me that she had weighed some gawdaweful amount and they were the result of the weight loss.


    The second woman, the GF of a roomie, was pretty as can be but was cursed with a soft body. No matter how much she worked out or jogged, she never got toned. I think her diet was just standard fare, and she sure wasn't afraid of meat, as she was a butcher!


    Everyone is different is about all I can say. BTW, I was walking the beach today - strictly for exercise, you know - and now that Mark has defined "skinny fat" for us - it's so easy identify those women with that syndrome. I even saw one woman I would call anorexic that hasd no muscle to speak of, but she still had fat. Skinny as she was, her butt actually sagged!


    I guess I'll have to return to the beach for more research.

    Short of surgery, Don't we shed skin all the time?


    Aye this is a constant fear though, for people who want to lose weight.


    I'll cross that bridge when I get there hehe.

    You don't have to lose it slowly. Here is a method that really works: just cycle the weight loss. Go 40 days hard core losing, and then stabilize for 40 days, this will give your skin a chance to catch up. Then repeat the process. My husband and myself lost this way (over 70 lbs each doing Simeon's protocol) and neither of us have any hanging skin. Others have said the same thing. But ever notice how those who get bypasses or lap bands have hanging skin everywhere? They can't take a break from losing, so their skin can't catch up in time.

    Thanks for the good advice folks. I have been reading these horror stories about folks who loose a massive amount of weight and have unsightly loose skin. So here is what I take from this thread and others.


    To minmize loose/sagging skin


    1. Lose weight slowly.

    2. Take a break from time to time to allow your skin to catch up.

    3. Proper nutrition and supplements. PB sounds good.

    4. Exercise to maintain/build muscle.

    5. Age is a factor. Your skin looses elasticity as you age. So be realistic.

    6. Genetics can play a role.

    Not sure about loose skin, but I hear cocoa butter is good for stretch marks.

    Remeber, stretch marks come from a rapid weight or size gain, not loss. If you're losing weight right now, you either have them or you don't. There are things to minimize their appearance, but the prevention had to come during the size increase, not decrease.


    Bodybuilders who move on to cycles can have this problem, as well.
