    I read something a while back about how lose skin may shrink if the person gets down to very low bf (single digits) but I haven't seen any studies to back it up. Where is ceaze when you need him?

    Not always if it was very rapid weight loss and there was a lot of stretching involved.

    Clean bulking. Start eating a bit more again and lifting hard. If a majority of your loose skin is on the lower stomach, then focus on leg raises/lifts and ab workouts. IMO replacing it with muscle is a lot better than surgery.

    naturally, your skin should retain its "original" (pre-McDonald's) shape to some degree. however, since you lost the weight quick (maybe a little quicker than recommended), the time it will take, and degree of tightening depends. it may take a year or two, and it probably wont go back completely.

    take these guys advice. put muscle there.
