    Youth, genetics, probably healthy weight loss speed. He had no stretchmarks which are your skin ripping because it could not expand in time. He has pretty healthy fat distribution.

    Looks like he lifted too. many anons on here lose weight as fast as possible which is just the obese mindset at work again wanting it all with instant gratification. I worried a lot about lose skin and probably will have a fair bit but its a non issue, I will fast it off and if not ill just save for surgery or get it on the nhs. its such a common problem we might see real treatments in the next 10 years.

    But basically
    >lose 0.5-1% bodyweight a week or 500-1000 cal deficit
    >lift which is equally as important
    >use moisturizer
    >microneedle
    >take collagen with vitamin c
    >I will try retanoid cream soon

    Lots of anons like to say speed of loss does not matter which they base on nothing and just makes no sense. Having something to support the skin obviously will help like a framework.

    I have a theory that skin appears in spots subjet to gravity so will try binding my belly up and night

      huh, so the speed at which you gained weight also matters, to avoid stretchmarks?
      >its such a common problem we might see real treatments in the next 10 years.
      that's a hopeful point. These nightmare weightloss drugs are creating a lot demand for solutions to loose skin.
      >binding my belly up at night
      do you sleep vertically? Shouldn't you be binding it during the day?
      Another speculation I've seen is extended fasting, so that autophagy will reduce the excess skin.

        Yes. This is why you will see all kinds of roidtroonys with stretch marks around their armpits and shoulders from their rented gains.

        Yeah speed is huge, I got down to 100kg then over like 5 months regained to a new high stressing at college. My belly is a sea of stretchmarks.

        Yeah your right during the day makes sense but will feel weird if anyone notices. Fasting seems to let you lose weight quickly and reduce the lose skin. dr fung or what ever he is called has never referred anyone for skin removal

      It's mind-boggling he avoided stretch marks and yet some newbie gymcels get them from cheat curling 20 pounders. I'm 100% this shit is genetics.

        I do have some stretch marks actually, just can't see them in the pic, and none of them bother me. I have a couple near the front of each armpit, and those are pretty dark/deeper. I have quite a few around my hips, but they are really light/shallow, so not very noticeable unless looking closely.

      Yeah I went from 108kg to 81kg in a year and a half and I have some loose skin, not a lot, but it's not as tight as OP pic who lost more weight than me and at an older age, I did it at like 19. I do also have stretch marks.

    He never went to fold. Probably was decently dyel in his teens and early 20’s, got a desk job and drank too much. Had he really let go(290-300+ untrained and unroided for guys like Rich Piana who regularly broke 300lbs) or stayed above 250 for longer would have absolutely lead to having his skin elasticity being fricked. Hell Rich’s skin elasticity was likely fricked and had he ever let humanity return he would have loose skin too.

      I'm the anon in the pic. Main reason I didn't have loose skin is the fat didn't totally fold over. Once that happens loose skin is a lot harder to avoid.

      I don't have loose skin on my abdomen. What little I have is at the bottom of my butt, and its not bad. Partly due to having a hank hill ass still as well. I'm pretty sure it will mostly sort itself out by building up glutes.
      >Show us
      No.

      He doesn't look very muscular, so he mostly lost fat? Is this fasting, walking + calisthenics?

      I mostly worked out at home (calisthenics, kettlebells, adjustable dumbbells). But volume and intensity was honestly really low. Also fricked my leg and back up helping brother demo a barn last September. Stopped to let that heal, then was super inconsistent with working out. I finally started getting my dumb ass in a gym 3x/week a couple weeks ago.

        What was your diet like? Any fasting? Didn't mean to imply you don't look good by the way, it's quite an improvement.

          Kek it's fine, I'll be the first to admit I'm still dyel. I'm more deliberately working on that part of it now though. I didn't do fasting. First 2-3 months I did do OMAD. After that, and still today, I only have dinner as my main and biggest meal, but I do eat smaller amounts earlier in the day. Maybe ~200 cal at most at any one time. Dinner is usually around ~1,000 calories. As far as food in diet, its all the classics: chicken, pork when its cheap, no beef just because its always too expensive, potatoes, rice, beans, oats, dairy, any vegetable I can eat raw, etc. Not all of it every day, of course, but that's the stuff that makes up 95%+ of what I eat.

        Were you obese as a kid?

          Not as a kid, but I was obese as a teenager. Then was in military from 20-28. Was 250 lbs when I enlisted. Got lean/fit in military. Got kinda fat when I got out and was finishing degree, then started blowing the frick up around 2019. If I remember correctly I weighed myself once in late 2020 or early 2021 and I was around 290. But I guess I must have pulled back a bit between then and mid-2022, because I was that 272 when I really started trying to lose the fat.

                Thanks a lot. Somehow your stomach didn't sag at all, I'm 30 lbs lighter than your starting weight yet somehow mine overhangs. Just genetics I suppose, worst case I get a minor surgery.

                What'd you do for chest exercises? Cool to see that your chest fat 100% melted off. Thanks for the inspo too.

                Sure thing, wish you the best. Nothing special for chest, deficit pushups early on, then dips, eventually incline dumbbell presses. Never enough volume or intensity to make any really meaningful lean mass gains though I think. Now that I finally started going to a real gym, all the usual suspects.

                Fatty liver more like it.

                I don't drink. Maybe one or two drinks a month, at most. Even when I was fat. I just ate a lot of garbage and was totally sedentary.

    It's a combination of the amount of skin (how extreme the obesity was) and age (elasticity of the skin).

    If you get really fat you always have some loose skin. You can hide it in pictures by sucking in your gut and hiding it on your waistline.

    Look how well he carries the fat. There’s no hang, no sag. The skin isn’t stretched at all, even when he was fat. His belly isn’t even hanging over his belt.

    Other fat people have the shit hanging off them and that’s what stretches the skin.

      Shit I might be in trouble, I was the same size at my worst and same height, but I'm down in the 240s now. My fat frick stomach has that same bloated look but it does sort of hang or sag over my waistline.
