Has anyone been a long time user of collagen in your foods/drinks and notice it has helped prevent sagging skin and wrinkles once your weight loss got in gear? You can mix it in anything hot or cold plus there’s usually about 10g of Protein per serving. Only downside is the extra expense I’m willing to endure again if it truly helps. Thoughts?

I think anyone that loses a large amount of weight, 100 pounds or more, is going to have some loose skin.

If you have good genetics, and are younger and in the lower end of that spectrum you may get lucky and not have much.

If you are a bit older, and have lost much more, you will likely see more skin.

I started to see quite a difference once I was losing over 120 pounds. Now I’ve lost close to 170, my arms and tummy have some loose skin, so do my inner thighs.

The problem is you cannot compare the difference in yourself with or without the collagen peptides. And you really cannot compare yourself to anyone else either when it comes to weight loss and excess skin.

If it was me, I would save the money to put towards plastics. Unless you have lots of extra cash lying around, it could be a waste of money.

Very cool! I haven’t had surgery yet so I’m looking for ideas to help lessen future Hair loss and preserve skin elasticity. I’ve taken CP before as part of my keto diet, but I was going over on my Protein macros too easily and decided to quit the CP to free up some room for actual food. I never gave it time to see any results from it so I think I’m going to add it back just to get ahead of the game. 👍🏼
