        Lose weight slowly and lift for hyper trophy. You want slow recomposition.
        Google: body recomposition.

        A quarter to half a lbs per week. It will take a long time, but you won’t have any loose skin.

      No more than 1.5 pounds a week. My skin recovered fairly well but I was young and also took biotin.

    You should be fine if you do it slow or take periodic rests in the cut. I've lost roughly 40% of my mass before and no issue, no fasting or bullshit diets involved. Unfortunatly it would mean you're looking at time frame near 2 years.

    You don’t want to hear this but it’s too late if you have hanging fat.

      See
      There can be *some* contraction over time, but for anything significant you'll need surgery, no way around it.

      You should still lose the weight.

    Bio-oil helps marginally with stretch marks.

    I suspect that tretinoin helps marginally with loose skin.

    Hey bro don't miss the forest for the trees on this one.

    Don't even think about this shit , just set a sustainable weight loss rate and get going. I have lost 50kg/110lbs myself and their is so much more to look forward to than worry about from this process.

    Good diet - Progressive overload in the gym - Be consistent also bro .Good luck homie.

    WAGMI.

    Just lose the weight at a reasonable rate and the skin goes away with it. I was 250 and dropped to 175 over four years and have no extra skin. If you're losing 2-3lbs a month it gives your body plenty of time to adjust.

    Am I gonna have loose skin if I lift and lose like a pound a week?

    I have stretch marks but I'm not ashamed. They serve as a reminder of my own folly.

    this is the equivalent of worrying your shoes will look bad after running a marathon. focus on the marathon brah.

    with that said, max weight loss of 1% bodyweight per week should minimize lose skin. people say 2 lbs max usually for muscle retention but you're really really big and I'd assume don't have much lifting experience so I wouldn't mind you losing 2.8 instead of 2.

    Don't lose it fast, keep slowly losing it
    If it took you 10 years to get so big why expect to lose it in half a year?
    Take 2 years to lose it. Fat people are often the most dopamine driven quick results type of people. Stop your mentality.

    Take 2 years, do light cardio first, moderate pace, don't overexert yourself or try to burnout. Create a habit first.

    cells take 8 years to cycle out of the body, if you are older the cells regen even slower.
    lose the weight and then get a loan for skin removal surgery. it's the only realistic path.
