Loose Skin Prevention?

What are some of the most proven Loose Skin prevention methods? By prevention, I also wanted to clarify that it also includes methods which try to at least minimize loose skin.

Here are my stats: CW: 318 lbs GW: 220
Height: 191 cm

    Not allowing oneself to be a collosal fat ass to begin with.

      Childhood obesity and single mothers are making that less of an option with every passing year retard. You can learn fork put downs in your teens but you generally don’t have control of what you are putting down till much later. Saying don’t let yourself get fat is boomer tier advice almost. I am not excusing staying fat when you have autonomy but even that is getting whittled away as feminist psychologist keep trying to make developmental years last to age 37. Again stop being fat when you can and give haes all the hate you can muster but unfortunately the wider, fatter conversation is getting muddy.

      Fpbp. This is the only way. All the morons screeching about fasting or autophagy are incorrigible retards.
      If you got super fat, your options are to live with it or get surgery to remove excess skin.

    Best prevention is time e.g doing cuts in cycles and giving your skin time to recover and adjust.
    You can cut down quickly to 245lbs and look how your skin looks like. Then slow cut to 220lbs

      Best cutting cycles are 3 months hard cut 1000 - 700kcal deficit a day, 500 if you can't handle the cut. Then maintain for 1 - 2 months and then cut again.
      A slow cut would be a deficit of 500 - 300 kcal deficit.

        My plan was to lose around 2.5 lbs a week for 6 months and then switch to 1.5 lbs a week for 4 months. Totaling a weight lost of around 91 lbs in 10 months. Then I would lose just 0.5 lbs a week for 3 months to then reach around 220 lbs.

      There's no evidence whatsoever that fast fat loss causes your skin to shrink slower. In fact, there is evidence that fasting causes faster turnover of skin proteins.
      >Lose 100 lbs over 2 years, skin tightening rate = X
      >Lose 100 lbs over 6 months, skin tightening rate = 2X

      Note that you'd have looser skin in the latter case after the weight loss, but probably less loose skin at the 2 year point.

        So you mean 2 years after you lost 100lbs?

    I'm guessing loose skin prevention is fucking bullshit. Things like not losing weight too fast is retarded: your skin has already been stretched to the point where new skin was created. The new skin already exists; you think it will vanish if you just loose a bit slower?
    You can't prevent it other than not becoming fat in the first place.

      Depends on where you start, but if you're 500lbs or some shit over 40 BMI you will always have loose skin if you don't get surgery.
      It's also important to build a muscle foundation so you have to lose less weight in the first place and your skin has less inches to skin get tight.

          Only you can access your situation but lurk on IST for some while teach you when the right time comes.
          You should approach your weight loss journey to take 2 - 4 years. When you reach BMI 30 and you can see lose skin, maintain your weight for the next 2 year and just lift.

              Looks great tbh. If you're that concerned about the skin just dry fast occasionally and start exfoliating or getting some kind of treatments at a spa or whatever for the next few months. The skin will respond well to a consistent approach and improov

                no guy, but dryfasting reddit will help you in a more formal way than here with their faq's and anecdotes. basically no water/tea/coffee/liquids for 24~ hours (or more)
                exfoliating is a light abrasive against the skin to remove dead skin. since skin works by building under layers first that push off old top layers i can't see how this helps. as what you'd want to change is the % rate at which new skin is formed.

                All the women who are wall survivors do exfoliating. It's good for the fascia as well as the top layers of the skin. The less "tight" and more supple the fascia is, the more circulation and benefits to the skin.

            What do you think of this plan? I shortened it to a year and a half, still too quick or do you think its manageable?

              The quicker you lose the weight the better, I don't think you will have massive amount of loose skin like in the OP that is only when you lose over 200lbs.

                i can understand being bummed out about having a stretched out pouch of skin over your body, but this is nothing. normies can't tell a difference

          I went from 320lbs to 192lbs at 6'1" and just ended up with loose skin on my lower abdomen. It only looks shitty if I'm carrying fat there, otherwise the skin is taut to my stomach. I'm now at a much more muscular 230lbs (roids) and it hasn't changed the skin situation much due to how little muscle mass you can pack onto the waistline

      i'm going to bet he wasn't fat for very long. probably gained weight in like a year or two and then lost it. i think that and being relatively young plays a role in loose skin

    30 years old, was 130kg (176cm height) 300~ days ago, now at 78~ kg and slowly building muscle. no excessive loose skin.
    did keto, (but been carni the last 100 days) OMAD and about 1000cal a day from the beginning. about 15 48~ hour fasts in there as well.
    it'll be interesting to see the skin at 70~ kg which is what i am aiming for, unless i build too much muscle (only lifting rocks)

    Lose weight the slow and steady way, the less loose skin you have the easier it is to remove with surgery

    loose skin doesn’t happen when you loose weight it happens when you get fat and the skin rips

    nothing you can do with diet or exercise can reverse it. the skin is literally ripped. that’s what stretch marks are

    people who don’t have loose skin didnt get stretch marks when they got fat
