I should know. I lost 20lb in 1month using intensive fasting-schedules for 4weeks, and didn't suffer loose skin.In case you want to look into it, I used the schedules & guidelines of Dr. Jason Fung in his The Complete Guide to Fasting: Heal Your Body Through Intermittent, Alternate-Day, and Extended Fasting.www.audible.com/.../B01N49H59ZIf you don't have an Audible-account yet, you can have it for 30days as a demo to their services. I finished the book in 3days before trying anything so I could start, already knowing the tips & tricks (and also to make sure I don't sabotage my efforts without knowing it).Of course, there are other fasting-experts out there, so find an expert whose system works best for you. (To be safe, I'd recommend making sure the expert is a trained medical-expert like a doctor or nutritionist, just to be safe.) Whoever your expert is, this advice from Dr. Fung helped me and may help you, too: Fit fasting into your life, not the other way around. If your selected schedule doesn't fit into your life practically, you won't stick to it. And if you don't stick to it, you won't get your desired results.
That's what I'm doing now, the IF. I'm going 2 days fast, 1 day eat. On my eat day I eat whatever I want but workout by lifting heavy weights and hitting the treadmill for 1hr. Trying to lose 30lbs by July so I can look good in a tank top again.
@Mellontikos Awesome! Good for you! More power to you, man.In my case, I did an alternate-day for 1week, 5-day the next, alternate-day, 5-day all in 1month and lost 20lb in August 2017. Your schedule should work with you, too.Just never jump into the fasting-mimicking diet. It proved to be my downfall. Ever since I tried it, keeping my will strong during fasts became noticeably more difficult.

@massagemanHuman skin can stretch and spring back unless you abuse it by smoking or getting too much sun. There is nothing worse for skin than those two. Both will cause you to lose the elasticity of your skin and if you pinch an inch the wrinkle will remain for a period of time and no instant spring back. No cocoa butter or massaging will help that. Your body replaces skin cells every day. When you get bigger more are produced. Production slows when no more is needed. Unfortunately when you lose weight fast it doesn't take away any skin cells and they stay the same and you get excess skin like in my illustration.
@Daniela1982 I agree that there are many things - including smoking and excessive UV- that can harm the skin. The "pinch recoil" has more to do with the moisture level of the skin, however. In fact, the "back of hand pinch" is a classic "quick test" to measure body hydration. Cocoa butter and proper massage can help to rejuvenate the skin (and I did say MIGHT in my original response). Yes, your body replaces skin cells constantly, with the new cells growing from the basal layers of the skin and migrating outward to the epidermis. When you eat more, the skin cells replace at the same rate, perhaps even more slowly due to poor overall health. New cell production slows as we age, or otherwise over-stress our body, and therefore, the skin. Your skin cells will continue to slough off and be replaced with new cells which will typically make some accommodation to the changes on the body as they migrate outward.
Yeah maybe 55kg or 60kgBetween that range would be healthy for me
I already was goin gymBut gym hasn't opened yet againSo ill be going back after it opens
for those who don't know the math or don't want to look it up. 80kg is roughly 176 pounds and 50kg is roughly 110 pounds.
