How To Get Rid Of Loose Skin:
The main question asked, after you have stuck to your diet and lost weight is: how do I tighten my excess skin?
Is it even possible and why after achieving weight loss am I not toned?
Here I have some advice on how to complete your full transition and have the body you were striving for.
The good news is you don’t necessarily need surgery to fix the problem! You can tighten that skin and achieve a toned, lean and healthy looking body.
Do I Have Loose Skin Or Fat?
This is the part we need to establish first.
Is what you are seeing actually loose skin or simply excess fat that is not completely gone?
We all have deposits of fat that take longer to shrink than others. For men this fat is mainly in the stomach region. For women it is usually in the hips, thighs and buttocks.
Unfortunately you can’t achieve targeted fat loss in specific areas of your body, but you can increase intensity on the area with exercise and the correct diet.
You just need to determine if you are dealing with excess skin or if you are being mislead by body fat instead.
The easiest way to do this is to simply pinch the part of your body that is the area of concern.
If you can grab more than a few millimetres of skin then there is more fat to lose.
This doesn’t mean you don’t have excess skin, but until you rid the majority of the fat it is covering, then the skin on top is not going to tighten.
Remember skin is shaped by what is underneath, once you have lost those last stubborn pounds, it can and will start to tighten.
