    autophagy during periods of fasting

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Not op but doing this now, again. Was fasting before lent to fit for a rented tux and continued rolling 48hr fasts for lent. Skin is still there.

      Also fasted on and off for four years after loosing 60lbs from a 210 max. From 210 to 150 was done with a diet change and activity increase. That took about 3 years. Started fasting late 2020 and cut down to 118 (5'4 manlet) at my lowest in 2022. Doing a plank then, I'd have visible loose skin. Standing up I look ok unless I was just sitting down. Then you can see slight skinfolds. Fast forward 2 years with continuous on and off fasting the skin is still there. For me fasting doesn't seem to consume scar tissue and that might be the key factor. If you blimp up to the point where you get stretch marks then it's unlikely autophagy will fix loose skin. The damage is done and the repair was scaring. Also doesn't help that I'm 34 now. Worth it though. I run and bike shirt off and dgaf.

        autophagy during periods of fasting

        How do I avoid insomia while fasting for prolonged period?
        I can fast just fine. I've done it before for a few days.
        It is just that if I don't eat long enough, I become super alert and woken up to the point I cannot really sleep. Also, I wake up super early like in 4 hours which is troublesome.

          I've been having trouble falling asleep since I was a teenager. These days, if I am not physically tired or drunk out of my mind, I take 2 mg melatonin before going to bed. Fasting does not seem to give me any more insomnia than I already had, not even while fasting for 14 days.

    I lost 160lbs. Didn't get loose skin, OP. People get loose skin because they go from one extreme to the other too quickly.

    >He knows he's gonna have loose skin
    >He starts eating like shit again
    I don't know how to get him out of his funk over his skin. I told him it won't be bad until he's down at least another 200 pounds or so, but he keeps stressing out about something that hasn't happened yet

      he sees fat people all the time, but doesn't see people with loose skin all the time, so he thinks fatness is more socially acceptable.
      that's true, but he's also a b***h for making decisions based on social acceptability instead of his health. Tell him that.
      also: with the new nightmare weightloss drugs, loose skin is going to be more prevalent. Treatments for it, too.

    if you only have 100lbs to lose there's a good chance you have no loose skin unless you are like 5 feet tall. good chance you will have permanent stretch marks though, although they do fade over time

      stretch marks aren't really that ugly anyway, they might even look cool, loose skin is infinitely worse.

    To avoid loose skin you lose weight at a slow rate. Aim for half a lb per week, it will take years of what feels like iron discipline but you can completely return to a healthy and normal look. You’ll in fact look good, really good, if you maintain a good musculature during the process.
    Stretch marks can be tanned/needled away.

      losing weight at a slow rate doesn't prevent loose skin, if you overstretch your skin you overstretch your skin.

      people who have hanging bellies arm flaps and flapjack breasts are done with.

              that's why then, you were "solid" from the start, if you only had it in a hang over the belt belly you'd have loose skin.

        I dare say losing weight too quickly will almost guarantee more loose skin than you otherwise would have.
        I'd say loose skin can be mitigated by:
        Keto/carnivore
        periods of fasting
        moderate weight loss progression
        red light therapy
        grounding
        high-quality sleep

          every progress pic of someone who lost a lot of weight that's my proof, if they have the beer belly barrel look they have no loose skin or if any its extremely minimal.

          If I just used myself as proof that's only one person, fricking b***h frick you.

    Six week dry fast
    Meaning no food or water consumption at all except showers and brushing teeth of course
    Your body will kill the fat cells and remove them. Also it will remove all unnecessary tissues and cells like stretch marks

        Pretty fricking gross. But whatever, at least I conquered the demon.. now I’m bulking at 3-4K calories trying to build as much muscle as possible idc ima try bloatmaxxing at this point. I get more attention from women when I get on creatine and start bulking. I guess they like the “hunky” (I call it chubby) look better then skinny

    Now I’m 183 lbs bulking. It’s my belly button/ under pec / overhang / + appendectomy when I was young did not help at all. Whatever, when I was a fatass I thought my loose skin would look way worse than it actually turned out to be. Still tho, you will never be happy/content but ce la vie
