      I havent been on for a while but I have been busy!

      Having lost a fair bit of weight I have the depressing issue of loose belly skin to address now. At times it looks unsightly and it can get me down. Surgery aside, does anyone have any advice about how to sort this. I cant imagine I am the first and I certainly wont be the last to have this problem!

      You can go to the gym so that over time you will tighten your body, and you will not have problems with loose skin on your stomach. You can also try it with protein.

      I hope I helped.:)

      Sorry for the delay in coming back to you @Connor - could you explain how protein helps?

      I read everywhere that I should be taking in more protein with my workouts but I am not exactly sure how it will benefit me.

      I hate the term, but is there no way to get rid of man boobs? What about those who have been weight lifting for years and then stop. Is this an issue they should expect to experience?

      A general over view on improving loose skin:-

      Loose skin is a common concern for many people and can occur due to various reasons such as aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or genetics. Here are some steps you can take to improve the appearance of loose skin:

      1. Exercise: Regular exercise, including both cardiovascular and strength training exercises, can help to tone the muscles underneath the skin, which may improve the appearance of loose skin. Strength training exercises that target the specific area of loose skin can be particularly helpful.

      2. Maintain a healthy diet: Eating a balanced diet that is rich in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals can help support healthy skin. Foods that are high in antioxidants, such as fruits and vegetables, can also help to promote collagen production, which is essential for skin elasticity.

      3. Stay hydrated: Keeping your body well-hydrated can help improve the overall health and elasticity of your skin. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to maintain hydration levels.

      4. Moisturize: Applying moisturizers or lotions to your skin regularly can help keep it hydrated and improve its elasticity. Look for products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, or cocoa butter, which can help moisturize and nourish the skin.

      5. Protect your skin from the sun: Sun exposure can damage the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin, leading to loss of elasticity. Protect your skin from the sun by wearing protective clothing, such as hats and long-sleeved shirts, and using sunscreen with a high SPF when you are outdoors.

      6. Consider non-surgical treatments: There are several non-surgical cosmetic treatments that may help improve the appearance of loose skin, such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, or laser treatments. These treatments work by stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.

      7. Give it time: Depending on the severity of your loose skin, it may take time for improvements to occur. Be patient and consistent with your healthy lifestyle habits, and give your body time to naturally adjust.
      If you are concerned about your loose skin, it's best to consult with a qualified healthcare professional or dermatologist who can assess your individual situation and provide personalized recommendations. They may be able to provide you with additional options or treatments tailored to your needs.

      Would it be possible to get surgery or donate it for skin grafts?
